2008 Race for the Cure – Newport Beach, CA

On Sunday 10 of my family and friends walked with me in the 2008 OC Susan G. Koman Race for the Cure for Breast Cancer. I am a 18 1/2 year survivor and this is the 5th race that Kevin, Melissa and I have walked in. Some of my friends have also walked with us each year. It is mind boggling to see everyone there all in support of trying to find a cure for this disease that affects so many people. It’s the one day of the year that walking 3.2 miles doesn’t seem so bad. Thank you to everyone that made donations or walked with us or “Slept In For The Cure” this year. It was so great to have such wonderful support. Several of us are already planning on next years! We took lots of pictures that I have put on a photo website that you can visit and see how much fun we had.

The amount of banannas for the runners as they finished was crazy! Thank you to all the volunteers that helped put on such a great event!

About Moqqi

I was born in the Midwest but I have actually lived more of my life on the West Coast. I am looking forward to that day when I once again am living in the Midwest. Hopefully that will mean that I am retired and getting to live life at a bit of a slower pace! I've been married to the same guy for 36 years! We met when he was working for a semi-pro hockey team and I was selling tickets to the games. He also played hockey at an amateur and college level and I think I fell instantly in love when we went ice skating together and he saved me from crashing when someone behind me fell (I was skating backwards, he was skating forward, so we were facing each other.) and he reached out with his big, strong arms and grabbed both of my upper arms and just stopped me dead in my tracks to make sure I didn't fall over the person. My Hercules! I have two children, a son and a daughter. My son is an Registered Nurse and works in an ICU. He is married to a wonderful girl that I couldn't have hand picked better. They have produced the absolute, most cute and adorable Grandchildren that anyone could ask for! My daughter is now a Fifth Grade teacher. She has a joy and passion for teaching and loving her students that is not seen in many teachers these days. She truly found her calling. I have this blog because I thought it would be nice to have a place that I could share what is going on in our lives and I also just love to tell stories. I'm not a writer per se, but I do love a good story. Even if it's just a short little quip!
