4 Women ~ 60 Miles ~ 3 Days ~ DONE

We made it.  Slightly bruised and blistered, but each with all 10 toes intact, and completely inspired and awed by the experience.

Once we decompress and process things a little better, there will be tons of stories and photos to share.  So bookmark this page.  :-)  A few photos have been uploaded to our team Facebook page, and more are coming.

We're also sharing photos and stories from the event this Sunday at Hillcrest United Methodist Church in Nashville.  .  Come see us at 9:45am in Fellowship Hall ~ and we'd love for you to stay for 11am church service.

The Washington D.C. 3-Day involved 2,000 walkers, several hundred crew members, and raised $5.3 million dollars for Susan G. Komen for the Cure.  And that number will only go up.  We still have 30 days to take donations -- if you haven't yet, please contribute online to one of our team members.

We haven't picked a city for next year yet, but you better believe that Music City Spirit will continue to walk until there's no longer a reason to walk, to wear pink, or to fight for a Cure... because they'll have found one.

Because EVERYONE Deserves A Lifetime!

We leave for D.C. in 33 hours... at this moment, ALL team members have met our $2300 fundraising minimum, and counting checks that haven't posted yet, we're well over $11,000 raised in the fight against breast cancer.

Even more important, we've been touched to the core by the stories people have shared and the generous spirit that has lead people to open their hearts, their checkbooks, and their businesses to us.

Now we can fully focus on the event itself!  The journey of a lifetime is well underway... watch facebook.com/MusicCitySpirit for photos and status updates from Washington D.C.

Open Letter to Our Hillcrest UMC Family

Dear Hillcrest Family ~

Next Thursday, we leave for Washington D.C., where we are participating in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure ~ an event staged at 15 cities across the U.S. this year. We walk 20 miles a day, 3 days in a row, sleeping in tents at night and showering in a truck. And we can’t wait!

The decision to join the biggest and boldest event in the fight against breast cancer was made here at Hillcrest, on the Sunday morning of Discovery Weekend. Since then, we have logged hundreds of training miles, and raised over $10,000 in the fight against breast cancer. All working toward next weekend’s big event.

If you’d like to write a note of encouragement and support that we can read in camp at night, there is a mailbox in the welcome center. Leave them there by Wednesday, and Gary and Delaynie will deliver them to us next weekend.

Since beginning this journey we’ve heard dozens of stories of women who have battled this disease. We’re carrying a ribbon boa to D.C. honoring the names of the survivors and the memory of the angels who lost the fight. We’d be honored to carry a name for you, just let a team member know, or email JMRizer@aol.com.

Other ways you can support our team:

1. Pray! For strength, good spirits, & good weather.

2. Like our Facebook page ~ facebook.com/MusicCitySpirit Updates from the event will be posted there throughout the weekend

3. Wear pink to church next Sunday, so we can be there in Spirit!

Annette Donahey, Bridget Worden, Joyce Rizer & Julie Austin
