Samantha and I met at a rest area on the first day of the 2011 Seattle 3-Day walk. As we chatted over pretzels and purple gatorade, I noticed her tattoo: pink boxing gloves hanging from a pink ribbon.
Sam’s got a great sense of humor, but she’s serious when it comes to raising money to fight breast cancer. She showed me a photo of her and her friend Les, who had recently finished treatment for breast cancer. I was touched and inspired by her spirit.
This year will mark Sam’s fifth time walking the 3-Day. Please consider supporting her fundraising efforts.
