TX Storm/Susan G. Komen "Pitching for Pink" Walkathon

good ol' clip art

Hey Houstonians!                            
Our little sister's (Amy) softball team, Texas Storm has teamed up with the Susan G. Koman Houston Chapter Foundation and organized the 'Pitching For Pink' walkathon. I'm not sure that we have ever done a walkathon before, but there is not time like the present! The Walkathon will benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation as part of the proceeds will be given to the Komen group. The goal of this event is to raise $10,000 to present to the Komen group. This is a pretty big deal, especially for the girls of TX Storm because this is the first time a softball club (of this level) has ever been directly affiliated with the Komen Foundation for a walkathon of this measure. To tell you the truth, our whole family is pretty stoked about it all. If you want to participate in this cause let us know (iheartbueno at gmail) or CLICK HERE to learn more. If you know you would like to register, please click here (and write Amy Garcia next to 'Player Representative').

By the way, this walkathon is taking place the day before mother's day, so if you have a mother who holds quality time above all (or if you just want to give her something extra), this would make a great gift.
