I will be in Chicago for the Komen 3-day walk in two weeks. They have released the route to us. The camp will be open for visitors on Saturday 8/10 from 4:30-8:30, if anyone wants to stop by and meet in person! Hint, hint.. wink, wink.  Please send me a message, and I will give you the information. The parking for Saturday will be in Des Plaines. There will also be cheering stations for people to stand and cheer us on as we come by.

Thank you! I hope I get to meet some you awesome ladies! I won't be in Illinois again until probably Thanksgiving.

Thanks for the names and the well-wishes! I am making some signs now, then taking a short snooze before we hit the trail. We have about 11 hours of driving between Syracuse and Chicago. I will post pics here when I return. I will be posting to Facebook as we go. If you want to send me a friend request, I accept 'friends of friends', so look for me (Julie Henry Kulesa) on Ayse, Jean, Janelle, Debi, Joyce, Susan H. page!

From the weather report, it looks like you had a beautiful day in Chicago for this.  I bet there was a huge turnout.  Can't wait to hear when you get back.

Hi Ladies!

The weekend went remarkably well. I did have VERY sore feet and wondered what in the heck I signed up for!! But the whole experience was amazing. I met wonderful people. I would do it again in a heartbeat. This weekend raised 2.2 mil for Komen. I'm thinking that could save a few lives. Every step is worth it if it can help someone. I will post some pics. I tried from home, and couldn't figure it out. I'm hoping it's easier from the work computer. LOL.

Thank you all SO much for the support and cheers! You ladies are great! <3
