A new month! And a month that finds us even closer to our two ultimate goals for 2011 – run a race every month and complete White Rock Marathon.
While October is a month that the majority of people associate with Halloween , I am sure more and more people are remembering that October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This year I am confident in saying that this month is more near and dear to our hearts than ever before. If you’ve been reading our blog then you know we are fundraising for Team Cindy through our Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio half we will be running, which means we are raising money for breast cancer. We have pledged to raise $1,200 – that boils down to $100 per month of our 2011 race year. We are currently at 56% of our goal –

Yes, Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio is NOT officially until November so yes, we will be running the Komen 5k in Dallas on October 15th and proudly wearing Team Cindy on our shirts!
So if you follow us on twitter don’t be surprised if the #TeamCindy hashtag is more a part of our timeline than ever before.
One of the exciting parts of the month of October is that it will bring the arrival of Cindy’s first grandchild! So get ready for some cute pics of a sweet little Jack!
Cancer in general is a hard thing to deal with and there are so many people affected by it and in so many different ways! This year we have chosen to mainly raise awareness and money for breast cancer, and also childhood cancer with our volunteering and running for the Heroes for Children 5k.
Are you doing anything this month for Breast Cancer Awareness?
We’ll leave you with a picture of Julie and Mr. Death with their Team Cindy sign waiting for Cynthia to finish the 3-Day walk in 2010
