RUN FOR RHONDA





Thanks to improvements in prevention, early detection, and treatment, more than a million people in the US count themselves as survivors of colon or rectum cancer (also called colorectal cancer).

This is my Beautiful Sister Rhonda and she is a Cancer Survivor!!!

This post will be picture heavy because it sits so HEAVY ON MY HEART!!!

Rhonda was diagnosed with Cancer this year and she is still under going through treatment. She has been very strong through this entire process and I pray she continue to fight!!

I can not imagine what my sister and her family has to go through on a daily basis. I know I cant be by her side everyday but I wanted to do something to HELP!! I so I decided to get up a TEAM in Support of her and participate in the Undy 5000 Walk/Run!!

TEAM RUN FOR RHONDA!!!

When I decided to do this I had NO idea that she would participate and complete the walk being that she is still going through treatment and that can drain you all be itself!!!





As you can see she was EXCITED!!!






















It brought tears to my eyes of the joy I felt just being there and supporting HER and the Cause!! There was a lot of effect by the Organization and the Participants to make this Walk/Run a SUCCESS and what a SUCCESS it was!!!


READY      SET       GO!!!

They were Ready and IN IT TO WIN IT!!!!
















Me at MILE 1!!!!





They even had a WATER STATION!!




I SPOTTED alot of interesting landmarks on the walk. Like this Church founded by Former Slaves!!




 



         






Poor Babies thought it was a Parade Coming!!



Spotted a Falcons Flag!!! 8-0 BABY!!



         Even the Dog dressed up and showed his SUPPORT!!





 Lawd this was KILLER HILL!!! Rhonda's husband Jerry helped her through it but the POOR BABY was done and he didn't have any help. All I heard him keep saying is DO I HAVE TO DO THIS NEXT YEAR??? LOL....

  5. Planning an event is truly stressful.Different types of events can be conducted easily but such events should be planned well and organizer should be ready for any problem to make sure they end up successful.
