I can't imagine there is anyone reading this that has not known someone who has fought against breast cancer. It's sad to know how many lives have been affected by this disease.

I have for years helped my friend, Sherry Philyaw, as she trained for the Susan G Komen 3 Day Walk for the Cure. I have heard her stories of why she chooses to walk 60 miles in 3 Days.

There are so many people, family and friends, that she knows that have fought for this cause and fought the disease. She has even walked in more than one of these events each year. Sixty miles each time. She has gone to Dallas, San Francisco, San Diego just to name a few. Oh and all the friends she has made along the way.

This year I want to do more than just help her train. I have for years gone on the training walks with her around Amarillo. There have been countless Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays you could see us sporting our pink outfits and walking all over the streets of Amarillo.

This year I am going to do my part to raise money for Susan G. Komen. I need your help though. The big More Than Pink Walk is coming up in Downtown Amarillo on September 28th. I need a cool team and an even better team name.

This is where you come in! Help me come up with that name! I could also use your help by joining my team....but we will talk about that later. First things first. What do you think our team name should be?
