Another LiveSTRONG Hero...

As you know the Cancer to 5K program has been a blessing for me. After
dealing with cancer it has been great to have the support of a group
that does not sit around. I was not a runner when I joined the cancer
to 5K program and never thought I could run a 5k. Thanks to you Holly,
Arnetta, the support of the rest of the group and of course how patient
Coach Bob has been with me, I was able to finish a couple of 5Ks and
even a 7 mile race. But being able to finish the races is not the only
benefit. Running has also improved my tennis game. Therefore, for all
your support I am dedicating all my matches at my next tennis tournament
to the Cancer to 5K program. I will be playing singles and doubles at
the Capital Classic XVII, scheduled for the weekend of Sept 12.

I will be doing my best to win it for the Cancer to 5K. As with cancer,
"Let's Fight and Win".

Take care,

From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU DENNY, for taking a chance and joining the CANCER to 5K know where I will be Saturday afternoon! Tennis Anyone?
