Buddy Check 9

So it's "that time of the month" ladies. Get in the shower or the bathroom or wherever and get that self breast exam done. Early detection is KEY. Here is the message this month from Buddy check 9....
Hello Friends!
We are so looking forward to seeing all of you on Sunday October 5th. Denver's Race for the Cure turns 15 this year! Once again, we are expecting to be the largest race in the country, thanks to you. Please get your teams together, call your family members and neighbors and ask them to join us. You can register on-line, just look for the Buddy Check 9 page under Community.
The race brings together women, men and children for a day dedicated to breast cancer. This is a day to celebrate the lives of all of those diagnosed with breast cancer. They are our mothers, sisters, fathers, friends, neighbors and co-workers. They are the people who motivate each and every one of us to do what we can to support the efforts to find a cure. Enormous steps have been taken by researchers looking for better treatments and causes to breast cancer. Still, there is a long road ahead. Too many women and men die from this disease every year. For anyone who has lost someone to breast cancer, all that has been done is not good enough. We can do better.
Get involved today. Begin by making contact with your buddy, and remind your buddy to do a breast self exam. Now, take one more step. Ask you buddy to join you in the Race for the Cure. Thousands of people will descend on downtown Denver that morning to join this cause. Car pool, take light rail and expect big crowds. And expect to be inspired. After the race, join the survivor ceremony and look closely at the faces in the pink hats on that stage. They are part of a bigger family of people who bless our lives, teaching us how to live.
We will see you on October 5th!

I am registered to do it this year for the first time and can't wait to experience it and feel like 1 in 65,000 people. Wow, it's going to be awesome. Don't forget to remind the ladies in your life to give 'em a squeeze this month.
