Dear Friends and Family,
I am so excited to announce that TeamJudy will be hitting the pavement once again for the 3rd annual Jogging for Judy 1 mile, 5k, and 8k event at Miles for Moffitt! The race will be held on Saturday, May 10, 2014 at 7:30am on the USF Tampa campus. Like in the years before, we will be donning our Orange in support of my mother Judy. I hope you will consider attending to honor my mother’s memory and others affected by cancer.
The link to register for our team or to make a donation is here. (Click on “Join Team” to join or “Give Now” to make a donation). If you cannot attend, please consider making a small donation in my mother’s name. Even $1 is greatly appreciated!
In addition, we will be holding multiple fund-raisers leading up to Jogging for Judy! In the month of April, we will be hosting Co-op For a Cure once again! If you’d like to participate in this, please visit Co-op for a Cure for more details.
The past 2 years have been such an awesome reminder of the amazing people that were a part of my mom’s life. Thank you for continuing to support, remember and honor my mother’s memory. Not a second goes by that I do not think of her. Knowing that my support group continues to grow is what keeps me strong. Thank you from the bottom of my running shoes for the love, kind words, and support you’ve shown to #TeamJudy since 2012. May we continue to do awesome things for those affected by cancer, and may we keep Judy’s memory in our hearts forever.

A couple of years ago I “met” a girl named Sara.
I say “met” because we have never actually met in person… just through our blogs.
Like so many others in the blogosphere, though we haven’t met, I consider her to be a dear friend. Continue reading
