Remember the Chicago Breast Cancer 3-Day in 2007? I trained, raised money for breast cancer education and research programs, walked, camped in a pink tent, and walked even more. And after all that, they still haven’t found a cure for breast cancer ;)

Statistics still show that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetimes.

So, I’m doing it again. I’m walking in the Washington, D.C. event in October and again raising at least $2,300. Net proceeds from the Susan G. Komen for the Cure are invested in breast cancer research and community initiatives.

I am planning on surpassing the $2,369 that you - my friends and family - gave so generously last time around to help fight breast cancer. Please consider using the enclosed donation form or going online at www.the3day.org/goto/jillianduch to donate. I’m hoping to reach my goal by my birthday (Aug. 24).

If you have any questions or want to hear more about what I'm doing, I love talking about the event. I also am chronicling my experiences online at www.chailatteplease.blogspot.com. Thanks for all of your support. I'm incredibly lucky to have people like you in my life!

    Thanks for the post! I will be a repeat walker this year and this gives me a good idea for starting out my fundraising letter to those that donated before.
