Komen Race for the Cure

Last Saturday, Team Jenna walked in the St. Louis Komen Race for the Cure. We raised over $1500 for the St. Louis area research and development to help find a cure.

You can still donate at the following link: http://www.komenstlouis.org/site/TR?team_id=29090&fr_id=1080&pg=team

Thank you to all my family, friends, and colleagues who joined us and/or donated to this wonderful cause. Thank you to those that traveled from out of town to continue to show your support of me and my family...it means the world to me.

It was an early morning as I met Jodi on the live set of KSDK so I could see her do her live interview. She is such an inspiration to many and especially me. She is the one that showed me that this disease would not take us down, but rather we could stand strong to help beat this together.

Here is her clip from KSDK.

We then walked in the Survivor Walk together. What an amazing emotional experience. To stand there with hundreds and hundreds of other women who had battled and won the fight against breast cancer, to those that are still going through treatment and to those that unfortunately lost their lives to this terrible disease, it showed how strong women (and men) can be when we come together to raise funds to continue the research to find a cure!

Here we are joining the other Survivors! Check us out at the 1:40 timestamp

As many of you have seen, Emma and I are featured in the KSDK commercial:

Below are some photos from the day.
