Weekly 3 Day Blog Round Up: May 6th – 12th

May 17th, 2011 by kscincotta

Now that the new blog is up and running, the link posts are back!

The links in this post are from the week of May 6th – 12th and another links post should go up this weekend that will cover May 13th – 19th. I’m also collecting some of the best posts that I may have missed while I was switching blogs, which should be up some time next week. Once that post is up, we should be all caught up!

First up, Crystal of the blog 60 Miles and Beyond wrote about her experience at the Atlanta Race for the Cure over Mother’s Day weekend, which you can read about here. I wish we’d been able to meet up – next year for sure!

Rikki, who writes the blog Janice’s Fight: Our 3 Day Journey, recently held a very successful fundraiser in which she challenged her supporters to donate over $750 in exchange for her donating 10 inches of hair to Locks of Love. With $815 raised, it was time for the big chop. Check out her great results here.

Speaking of haircuts, it isn’t just the boys who shave their heads for the 3 Day! Last year, Music City Spirit team captain and blogger Joyce posted a video of her having her head shaved as part of her fundraising efforts. It’s now one year later and Joyce has posted the follow up video, which you can watch here.

While you are more than welcome to do something drastic to your head suit in the name of fundraising, you certainly don’t have to! Fundraising letters to friends and family can be just as effective. Lyndsey, of the blog My 3 Day Journey, used Mother’s Day as an opportunity to send out this excellent fundraising letter.

While others have been focusing on fundraising, Roberta, of the blog Journey to Atlanta, has been out training in New York City. You can see a couple of her pictures from her training walks here.

Finally, Kim, of the blog I Want a Minivan, shared how breast cancer has impacted her Mother’s Day in this brief but touching post that is yet another reminder of why we continue to walk.
