This photo was taken Saturday 10/25/14 in Mineral Wells Texas
The shoes in this photo just completed walking 18 miles. The shoes and the people wearing them are extremely tired. But this is only a training walk. The real walk and the real milage will take place 2 weeks from the day this photo was taken.
These shoes will join thousands of other shoes and walk 60 miles in 3 days. The goal is to raise money and awareness for breast cancer.
Each shoe represents someone’s battle against breast cancer. Some of those battles were won and others were lost.
But each shoe carries with it:
– hope for a cure
– tears for a loss
– courage for a battle hard fought.
At the end of the 60 miles each person will take off one of their shoes and hold it high. That moment will sybolize a salute to our fellow walkers who are survivors of this disease. It will also allow us a moment to reflect on those that have lost their battle against breast cancer. And those that continue to fight.
This walk will begin early morning 11/7/2014 and end the afternoon of 11/9/2014. If you are so inclined please keep the walkers, the survivors and the warriors that fight for a cure in your thoughts. Because, Everyone Deserves A Lifetime!
