That tradition has continued and we have had close to 60 people on our largest team which was in 2008! Team Zsa Zsa has made it's mark on the Austin Race for the Cure and I hope we can continue the tradition.

This is one of my favorite pictures of my mom and dad. He never wavered as her biggest cheerleader!
In 2009, me, my mom, my sister and my mom's best friend, Coleen, decided to participate in the 3-Day benefiting the Susan G. Komen Foundation. We trained for 24 weeks, and November 6-8th, 2009 we walked 60 miles in 3 days! Once again, through the generosity of friends, family and employers we raised over $10,000 for Komen!! I stand (or walk) in faith that one day breast cancer will be a thing of the past. No mother, sister, daughter, friend, husband, father, brother will have to fight this battle. (Click here to read my recap of that journey!)
There are so many wonderful organizations to be involved with. We also contribute to the SPCA (www.SPCA.org) and we each mentor children through the Seedling Foundation (www.seedlingfoundation.net ). The number of worthy organizations are endless, and I hope that I always have a passion for people and a desire to do what I can. Although it seems small, I know every bit helps. Where do you give of your time, talents and resources? I'd love to hear about your organizations! And for fun, here are a couple of pictures of our precious kiddos we have the privelege of mentoring!
