3rd annual: Race for the Cure

Hello friends and family, it is that time of the year for me to ask for your support in my fight against breast cancer, and Race for the Cure. last year as i prepared for my 2nd race for the cure event, i found out that my aunt ruby was diagnosed with this horrible disease. thankfully it was caught early and 11 months later she is in remission! each year this event gets even more special to me, which makes it that much more emotional. This year I'll be participating in 2 races! Denver's race for the cure on october 3rd, and Albuquerque's race for the cure on october 10th! i love this race. and i hope to make it a tradition for many many many years to come. if you would like to make a donation of the monetary kind please click on the link below to my personal page, then click on "support April", otherwise your donation of happy thoughts on my race days is just much needed and appreciated! thank you all in advance!

Dear Friends, Family, and Co-workers,
This will be my 3rd Race for the Cure event! I look forward to this 5k run/walk every year as it is so powerful, emotional and fun. So much fun, that this year I will be participating TWICE! Along with the Race for the Cure event in Denver, one week later, I'll be in my home town of Albuquerque, NM to support their Race for the Cure event as well! With two races, I hope to raise double in Breast Cancer Awareness.
I walk in memory of my Grandma Madrid who battled the disease more than 15 years ago.
I fight for my Aunt Ruby who was diagnosed with breast cancer last winter, and is still fighting.
Thank you so much in advance for your thoughts,
April Madrid
P.S. If you are in NM and would like to join my team, please let me know and I'll get you the information.

The fight against cancer goes on. In today's society everyone knows someone who has been touched by breast cancer. Whether it's a friend or relative, someone in your circle has battled breast cancer. I have found a way to fight against cancer- through the Susan G. Komen Denver Race for the Cure®.

I will be dedicating my walk to my Aunt Ruby, who is currently battling breast cancer.

The Komen Denver Race for the Cure® is a community event that honors and memorializes breast cancer survivors, co-survivors and those that have lost to the disease. The Race also plays a vital role in raising funds for research, education, prevention, advocacy and treatment. Each year over 1.3 million people take part in Race for the Cure events around the world. I will be joined by thousands of others October 3, 2010 at the Pepsi Center. (and October 10, 2010 at Isotopes Park.)
