Krazy for Kristen

This is in support of my dear friend who is a survivor. I did this walk for her last year and it was an exceptional experience. If you can help in any way to show your support that would be amazing. Please read her letter below:

Dearest Family & Friends -

I hope all of you have enjoyed your summer, and are gearing up for the 2009 KOMEN HOUSTON RACE FOR THE CURE, Saturday, October 3rd, 2009, at Sam Houston Park Downtown Houston! For the second year, I am so excited to be able to participate in this event with my family and friends. Thank you for being my support and angels throughout my recovery since being diagnosed last March. I am feeling great and thrilled to join my mom, another breast cancer survivor, in this year’s race!

Through our “Krazy for Kristen” fundraising efforts in 2008,
We raised nearly $17,000!

Thanks to you and our team, I was #33 of the Pink Honor Roll Top 100 fundraisers! Our teammate and my dear friend, Constance White, was honored as #25 of the Pink Honor Roll Top 100 fundraisers! In addition, our team efforts ranked #19 out the top 100 fundraising teams! We couldn’t have done it without YOU!

Please join us in participating this year, and register with the “Krazy for Kristen” Team! If you choose not to participate, please consider making a donation to the team (ANY amount will help!).

*Krazy for Kristen participants will plan to meet at 6:30am for fellowship and a light breakfast snack. This will also give us plenty of time to be in the Race staging areas by 7:45 am.

Thanks again for your friendship during the last 18 months!
Compassionately yours! Kristen Barley
