Windermere Real Estate SoCal Carlsbad Office Manager Tally Weber will be participating in this year’s Susan G. Komen 3-Day walk in San Diego, her third 3-Day event. Starting Friday, November 21st and running through Sunday, November 23rd, the 3-Day is a 60-mile journey to help raise support and awareness for breast cancer, the most commonly diagnosed form of cancer in women. Tally is one of many women, and men, walking for a great purpose – to honor, support, and make a commitment to stop breast cancer from taking another life, one mile at a time.
Tally’s journey began when she lost her Stepmom and Aunt, all within the same year, to breast cancer. Devastated by her loss, she started participating in the 3-Day walk to help with her grief and to celebrate friends, family, and others in their own personal journey. Then, on July 12, 2012, Tally faced her own breast cancer diagnosis. Tally said, “I walked last year and I will walk again this year to do what I can do to honor the struggles each of us and our families have been through when faced with a cancer diagnosis.”
Each participant is required to raise $2,300 to walk in the 3-Day, which is a big commitment. “This year, I did my fundraising primarily by having garage sales,” continued Tally. “Friends and coworkers have been so generous. All of the agents in the Carlsbad office have been incredibly supportive, donating items for the garage sales and providing so much positive encouragement through the training and fundraising process.” Tally and her North County 3-Day team raised over $267,000 for the 2013 San Diego 3-Day. Their goal for this year is to reach that amount again.
“This is an amazing event; lives are touched and hope lives,” concluded Tally.
Windermere Real Estate SoCal wishes Tally, and the thousands of other participants, good luck on this year’s 3-Day. For more information visit www.the3day.org.
