Komen Race for the Cure 2010


This was my third year participating with the “E-Team” at the Komen Race for the Cure. We were the largest friends and family team again this year, with 106 members. We rocked!

My generous friends and family donated a lot this year, so as an individual fundraiser I raised $2700 (at last count, our team had raised over $17k!). The Top 100 Fundraisers got some special treats and were entered into a raffle. Well, I won the grand prize! Donated by WorldMark resorts, I got a certificate for a 7-night stay in any of their 1-bedroom condos at any resort. Whoo-hoo!

I called to make my reservation and of course Hawaii resorts were booked out for more than a year. But then they gal made an awesome discovery. . . someone had just cancelled their reservation for a 2-bedroom in Kona. And it was for 6 nights, not 7, so they let me buy a few extra points and I ended up getting the 2-bedroom condo, with kitchen, for six nights for $75. It was meant to be! We leave June 30.

Yup, in like three weeks I’m headed to Hawaii! My parents are coming, and then last night I found out my friends Matthew and Danny can come as well. All these are people who deserve a break and a thank-you for helping me so much during chemo. I am super excited!!

  1. Nice work Karen. I’m so happy you are a big winner, and Hawaii sounds fabulous right now. We’re all pretty sick of rain. It was fun to be a part of the E Team.

    Have a wonderful time in Hawaii.

  2. Hi Karen,

    I am thrilled for all of you! What a great and well deserved vacation. Relax
    and enjoy every minute.

    Love, Aunt Sue

  3. Karen: it has a been a little while since I checked into your blog – didn’t know you & the gang were doing the Race for the Cure this past weekend…I ran the women’s 5K with my 15 year old daughter which was quite fun. I always get emotional when I do this race and run with all the “in celebration of” pink signs in the crowd. Yippee, how exciting to be going to Hawaii!!!
    Best, Janet Leeds

  4. WOOT WOOT Karen!! How super fabulous that you will be taking this wonderful trip. I hope you have the best time of your life! *HUGS*
