The emails, pages and tweets are all abuzz with today's announcement!
I just wanted to share with you to let you know how vital your donations and support are to far more than you could every possibly imagine. Sadly, there will be many that won't be able to participate and those that won't be able to receive the much needed assistance that is provided. If there is anything at all that you want to share about the announcement, please do so here.
What we as walkers do is more than walking. We provide support, companionship, fellowship and the need to be with our "other" family members. Until I saw this announcement I was considering one of my very own - to not walk. The financial support is difficult to come by and now becoming difficult to ask for. Yet, I will forge ahead by Hell or High Water and make it through. I do this not for myself, but for each and every single one of YOU!

Just Announced -
As the Susan G. Komen 3-Day continues to evolve, next year will bring changes that will affect many members of our Komen 3-Day family. The 2014 Susan G. Komen 3-Day will return to Atlanta, Dallas/Fort Worth, Michigan, Philadelphia, San Diego, Seattle and the Twin Cities. However, we are saddened to share that the 3-Day will not be returning to the following markets in 2014: Arizona, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Tampa Bay, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. Please note the 2013 3-Day series will continue as planned.
We are in the process of notifying all of the 3-Day family about plans for 2014, but wanted to share this news with you all here, too. The difficult decision to exit these markets was not made lightly, as we know this bold and empowering event has touched the lives of thousands of participants like you. While the 3-Day has brought great awareness to the breast cancer cause, participation levels over the last four years have made it difficult to sustain an event of this magnitude in 14 cities.
We’d like to thank all of our 3-Day participants for generously giving their support and participation to the Susan G. Komen 3-Day. We deeply appreciate your passion and commitment in helping find a cure for breast cancer and we hope all of you continue your support of the 3-Day and consider participation in one of the seven markets in 2014.
I am My Sister's Keeper
