From Mom…
Hi Everyone…
I Need Your Help!!!
I am walking 39.2 miles on September 10th & 11th in Santa Barbara for my 13th Avon Walk for Breast Cancer….
I didn’t fundraise too much this year because I was counting on a big donation from a
long time supporter… But things got a little mixed up with the company and I am now
scrambling to raise the required $1800. I am at about $1250 right now… So if you want to
donate to a great cause… Please go online to www.avon39.org for a credit card donation…
You can pick the Santa Barbara location and then add my name and my account will come
up… You can also write a check made payable to Avon Foundation or you can give cash….
I will take it all!
For my local supporters… I am baking and selling my Mini Bundt Cakes for a $5.00 donation…
I will make my Luscious Lemon Cake and a Chocolate Cake.

 If you have a business or know of someone who does and you/they need a tax break-
I am your woman!!!
I walk this walk for my younger sister Veronica who was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in
2003 and for myself… As I was diagnosed with B-Cell Lymphoma (Gland Cancer) in 2012…
We are survivors!!!
Help us support the Pink Ribbon Brigade!
Thank you…
Joanie (RC CrossFit’s Mom)
From Me…
 My Mom Has Been Performing This “WOD/Walk” For The Past 12 Years… I’ve Had The Opportunity To Walk Along Side Her & My Aunt Veronica Numerous Times While The Walk Was Hosted By The City Of Long Beach… I’ve Had The Chance To Meet New People & Hear Their Stories About Why They’re Walking… Who They’re Walking For… And Also Their Own Struggle With Breast Cancer… There’s Nothing Like Crossing The Finish Line Holding My Mom’s & My Aunt Veronica’s Hands With Tears In Their Eyes Because They Accomplished What They Thought Was Impossible… Along With Tears In My Eyes Watching Them Accomplish What They Thought Was Impossible…
And Mom… I’ll Never Forget This…

This Was Just Pulled Off The Internet…
But During Our 1st Walk… Every Few Light Posts Or Stop Lights… They Had Little Encouraging Signs Posted Up…
And This One Really Pushed My Mom To Keep On Going…
“BLISTERS DON’T NEED CHEMO…”
Her Feet Were Killing Her… It Was A Long Ass Day… At Any Moment She Could Stop & A Bus Could’ve Picked Her Up…
We Were Climbing Up This Big Ass Hill… Got To The Top… Had To Turn Left… And Posted On The Stop Light Was A Pink Sign With Black Letters That Read… “Blisters Don’t Need Chemo…”
Needless To Say… Hand In Hand… We Finished…
Love You Mom… Love You Auntie Veronica… Love You Grandma Gerry… And Love You & Rest In Peace Grandma Delia…

ALRIGHT… HERE WE GO!!!

Active Rest Day… Get Out & Do Something!!!

3…2…1…GO!!!
