Get inspired

By the time you read this, I will have run my first ever 10K in the Champion the Cure Challenge, which raises money for the Lafayette Cancer Center in Brewer. I see cancer come into my salon all too often, and I have shaved so many heads during my 11-year career that I feel like I can't only work in this community, I need to give back. This year, after some recent weight loss, I decided to go out on my own and commit to running my very first 10k. I ran track in high school and never even ran that far. I knew that by registering I had to commit to actually doing it and doing it well (because this is just how I am with anything). Champion the Cure only required that I get sponsored $75 to participate, and I set a personal goal of raising $500. I am in contact with people every day, so why not use that aspect of my career to support the local cancer center and also encourage me to reach a personal goal all at the same time?
