My Fabulous Weekend Part 1

Okay… now that it’s almost the next weekend, here is part 1 of my wrap-up:

My weekend was so fun-filled I need two blog posts to discuss it!! So, here is Saturday, well, technically many months of planning and a week of serious busy… but, all for what occurred Friday night into Saturday afternoon!

This past weekend I was the Race Chair for the 18th Annual Susan G. Komen of Southern NV Race for the Cure. With an AMAZING committee I can’t rave enough about, we planned and executed a successful event. We held our expo for a few days prior and spent Friday night with a final meeting, and the beginning of the operations side of things. Overnight items were moved to areas they would be needed, sponsor banners hung along the race route and everything set up. By 6:00 AM what is normally a vision of party-goers was a beautiful expo and race location. Approximately 11,500 supporters enjoyed the festivities and entertainment.


I gave my first ever (and second) welcome speech to those in attendance.



Gave a TV interview with CBS Channel 8 discussing the race and planning.


Was overwhelmed by the emotion of seeing this:


And lastly, was able to enjoy the smiles, cheers, tears and support of everyone there.


So… a huge thank you to all that helped make this day possible: the Komen staff, the committee, volunteers, and supporters. Also, a huge thank you to my husband for helping out and being more than okay with all the time I spent planning this event. I am beyond excited for next year!!
