The story behind Amanda’s pink ribbon tattoo still makes me a little weepy, more than two weeks after I met her at the 2013 Seattle 3-Day.
Amanda walked her first 3-Day in 2009, and passed a trio of four year-old girls holding the sign:
“Live with no excuses, love with no regrets.”
The girls were triplets who lost their mom to breast cancer, and their dad had brought them to the 3-Day to support people walking to find a cure for the disease. Amanda was so moved by this family she later incorporated their message into her tattoo.
Give your kids an extra hug today!
