My friend and hairdresser, Marina Nichols, participated in the Breast Cancer 3-Day walk in Seattle, September 7-9, to raise funds for the fight against breast cancer. Together with thousands of women she walked 60 miles over three days as part of team The Tyee Ta-Ta's.
They walked from Bellevue Community College over the I-90 floating bridge, south along Lake Washington to Tukwila and to Burien on Friday. On Saturday they went from their campsite in Burien south to Des Moines and Vashon then back to the camp in Burien. Day 3 they walked all along the Alki Peninsula across Harbour Island, past the big stadiums through downtown Seattle and finished up at Seattle Center at 4:30 PM.
I'm proud of you Marina! I know you trained a lot. Good for you. I love how you give back to your community.
Net proceeds benefit the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and the National Philanthropic Trust, funding important breast cancer research, education, screening, and treatment. The team raised over $36,850.
