Mary's Support Team
The Believe Walk is Sunday, October 6, 2019.
Through the years I've participated in this local to me event because of the uniqueness of the type of event that it is. The vibe around downtown Redlands for the duration of the event is beyond moving. It's inspirational, loving, caring, and emotional. It's something to say that you were a part of. It's something that you know is for a good cause. It's something that everyone who participates usually has a story. They all have their reasons for being there. I didn't. In the past, I joined my community in wearing pink but I didn't have a story. 2017 came along. Now I do.
What is Stater Bros. Charities & Inland Women Fighting Cancer Believe Walk?
The “Believe Walk” brings a community together with a purpose; to support cancer survivors, cancer patients, and their families in the Inland Empire communities of Southern California. Stater Bros. Charities & Inland Women Fighting Cancer started the Believe Walk with a simple vision, to create an event that honors cancer survivors and support those who are still on their cancer journey.
Why am I walking/running/strolling in the 5k at the Believe Walk?
Like a freight train hit. That's how it felt when the C word entered our immediate family. My mother-in-law was diagnosed on May 5, 2017 with breast cancer. She is the reason why this team was formed and who we will be walking and donating for this year.
Why join/support me?
By donating you will be a part of a life-changing event that brings together a community with one purpose; to support cancer survivors, those who are still in treatment and their families that live right here in our community. Literally, this event will change your life.
I hope we can count on your support of Mary Thomas!
