Thank You For Supporting Our Breasts

It's that time of year again...The Mountain Shadow Riders annual Breast Cancer Run. It's our big fund raiser and we have kicked off the drive to make this run our best ever.
If this is sounds like a promo, it is.

We have a team for the Race for the Cure--please check out my page and I ask for as much support as you can give....if not a monetary donation, please send prayers as I am running in the timed race! I did the timed race last year and came in around an 11 minute mile. Yes, it's grandma's speed--but I'm OLD....LOL...

Race day is September 10th at Iron Horse Park at Fort Carson, CO. Our team plans on riding our motorcycles. If you are in the area and would like to join us, please do so!

Our Breast Cancer Run is October 7th, 2006. We are doing a memory ride. It's about 100 miles and instead of a poker run, we have a contest regarding how well you pay attention to the items on the route...we'll ask if you remember what you saw. I am terrible at this so you have a good chance of beating me!

We also have some great door prizes as well! Guy stuff as well as girly stuff--who was the one that won the great tool box?

There is a new twist this year as well as we are having a Mystery Ride Auction. Several members are putting together a local ride and event and will auction the ride off. The "owner" of the basket will be the escort for the here's a chance to get out and see our beautiful area with one of our members! The ride will be available for viewing so you'll know where you are going...the member leading the ride will be unknown until after the auction. The only clue you'll have to the basket owner is how it is decorated.

Think hard, exactly how will the Rainbow Wahine decorate her basket??

Yes, I'm participating, so I'll have a ride basket. I'm also heading this committee, so if you want to participate or bid...let me know...

And I need a volunteer auctioneer as well.

Thank you for supporting our breasts. One in seven women will be stricken with breast cancer in her lifetime and the more we raise, the more the Colorado Springs Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation can give back to fund vital breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs in our own community and support the national search for a cure.
Have a great day, all!!

Keep The Shiny Side Up!

Good luck on your adventures that day! It seems you have packed a lot of fun into it.

My friend Stella and I were talking and we want to ride to see you in Spring...just a little heads up. We think it would be a great trip and a lot of fun. They can do a series: "Bloggers Gone Wild" on us. Whooo Hoooooo.
