October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We are so proud of Denise Deitchman, JF&CS Manager of Volunteer Development who participated in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure the weekend of October 21-23. These are her reflections on why she walked 60 miles for a cure.
I decided to walk the Susan G Komen 3-Day for a Cure in 2006 because it was always something on my bucket list. I thought it would be a great physical challenge, as well as inspirational, and I signed up with a few friends to do the walk. At the time, breast cancer didn’t really affect me personally, but I still wanted to help the cause.
