Rose: My high school best friend's mother who died from breast cancer just over a year ago. The woman who inspired me to run in her honor. The woman who made the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever tasted in my entire life. The woman who watched me grow up alongside her daughter. The woman who I know would appreciate the humor that I inject into most of my blog posts.

Even if you are participating in this year's run, please donate to this cause. I would love to live to see the day when we no longer have to say goodbye to people like Rose because of breast cancer.
