San Diego 2009

As usual, the San Diego event was amazing, awesome, huge and successful. The group raised over $9,000,000 for breast cancer research in a time when the economy was down, travel was challenging and our healthcare system is revising rules that many of us feel are dangerous and backwards thinking. The walkers, crew and community came out to show support and create a truly wonderful weekend.

I have many great memories of this event, not the least of which is the celebration of my birthday on Sunday -- by 4,000+ close friends! Who could ask for a better birthday party?

I saw friends that I have known for many years and from many cities around our country. I met new friends who promise to be be back next year and become old friends. I returned to a Route Safety Crew who has been together for many, many years.

I look forward to seeing you all again in 2010. I have registered for Seattle, San Francisco, Phoenix and San Diego. Who knows, if I am not working, maybe I will registerer for more.

Thanks for keeping us safe on the walk. No better way to spend your birthday. If you haven't see it I wanted to share this photo my son husband took of you on day 3.
