Today, 29,999 other people and I walked all around Newport Beach’s Fashion Island (I actually thought it was a real island. Alas, it is just a chi-chi mall) to look for a cure for breast cancer as part of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
We did not find it. We found a ton of cheerleaders, funny dudes in tutus, Boy Scouts handing out water and balancing cups on their heads, and one zillion cute babies. But hopefully, we are closer than we were yesterday to finding a cure. The walk so far has raised $1.42 million
In case you were waiting to give until I actually PROVED that I walked, please note the picture of me of me and my excellent co-worker, Lisa. I would never, ever in a million years wear a shirt or a baseball cap like that on my own personal voiltion, so you know it’s authentic. It’s not too late to give, either! It’s cinchy, just go to www.ockomen.org/race/vmcgrady.
Thanks, everyone, for all your support. I know a lot of regular 40licious readers gave, and I’m so glad I could reach out this way.
I should accept that working on the weekends will never get me the extra credit (or even pat on the back) that I’m looking for. So, I’m taking weekends back.
