25 Weeks: Breast Cancer 3-Day 2008 is Over
Wow - another 3-Day is now over - it's hard to believe how fast the weekend went. For the first time, Mel and I were able to participate on the event together, which was a real treat. She inspired me to first get involved 3 years ago, so it was very special to share this time together. Another first: this was a new experience for both of us on the volunteer crew. We had a terrific time with an awesome group of volunteers on the Camp Services crew.
This team worked tirelessly all weekend long to ensure a great experience for the walkers when they were in camp. And how did I fare being 6 months pregnant? Well, I will say that working 14+ hour days followed by tent-camping in 30 degree weather was probably not my best career move. However, our team was a terrific source of support and really made sure I didn't over do it. Much thanks to Tim, our leader, and to all of the wonderful people on Camp Services. Everyone made a point to wish me a Happy Birthday on Saturday, surprising me in a sing a long after lunch. And for the first time, Ed was able to come and see the 3-Day Camp. He visited with me on my break on Saturday and really enjoyed the opportunity to experience the mini-city that is our camp... and the chance to wish me a Happy Birthday. You've all made this a weekend worth remembering!!!
