Alright so... I have some prettttty fun and exciting news to share. As many of you know, I have been supporting the partnership between New Balance and Komen MA for about a year now with their #LaceUp365 program. This is a program that I am extremely passionate about as it generates awareness of breast cancer 365 days a year, not just in October. To refresh your memory... here are some links from the past:
Only weeks later, my sister was diagnosed.
Like a ton of bricks, ugh. And, as I sit here writing this, I'll be honest... I have knots in my stomach thinking about this sequence of events. It infuriates me that this disease is so prevalent. That being said, I'm so grateful that major organizations have partnered together to continue to raise awareness and educate people on breast cancer. The #LaceUp365 program is all about awareness. My translation of "awareness" means: be aware that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed, so... be aware of your body, be aware of your health, be aware of your environment, and be aware of what you can do to help lower your risk.
So, here's my secret REVEALED: A few weeks ago... I was contacted to be the blogger host at the next New Balance Girls Night Out Event (#NBGNO) on October 8th! To say I am honored -- is an understatement. These NBGNO events were developed by New Balance to deepen their relationship with women by empowering them, through physical and social experiences and opportunities, to connect with others. I've been chosen for this particular event because of my 'enthusiasm for fitness and passion and dedication to breast cancer awareness and the #LaceUp365 program.' Read a little more below. The best part - it's FREE and SO FREAKING FUN! Rebecca, Kim, and I participated in one last month. Recap here.
I'll be leading the pink laces run around Back Bay and then will speak a little bit about my passion for raising breast cancer awareness, as well as the HEALTH of our bodies.
