OCT 29 - 31, 2010. The Caymanites did it! After months of training and fundraising, The Caymanites exceeded the team goal and raised over $65,000, ranking the team as the 6th highest fundraisers for this event! I was pleased to exceed my personal goal of $10,000. http://www.the3day.org/goto/Christina.Kirkaldy (some wording below has been taken from the SGK site) . The 2010 Susan G. Komen Tampa Bay 3-Day for the Cure began with an emotional Opening Ceremony at picturesque Sand Key Park, just steps from the Gulf of Mexico. Our team captain was a flag bearer for the ceremony while 1,600 walkers gathered, stretched, and prepared for the day to begin. Mild temperatures, waterfront views and cheers of support from the St. Jude Honor Society and Shorecrest Preparatory students made for a great morning. A few miles into the route, we walked through the streets of beautiful Belleair. Tall trees at Taylor Park provided shade at lunchtime. After eating, we enjoyed a trip through the Florida Botanical Gardens and ended the day along the gulf beaches of Indian Shores before an air conditioned bus ride to Walter Fuller Park in St. Petersburg, our home away from home for the weekend. We arose early on Saturday morning, ready to hit the trail. We passed Bay Pines Veterans Hospital and then headed north. Firefighters with the City of Seminole were ready and waiting to support us and snap a few photos. Cheerleaders encouraged us to add some pep to our step. Saturday’s lunch was served on the water at Madeira Beach Fundamental School. A few miles later, we found even more love than usual at John's Pass Fishing Village, a Tampa Bay favorite. Saturday’s route took us across a few Treasure Island bridges and through the winding streets of the Jungle Prada. That evening, we gathered back at camp for fun, games, and a dance party. Sprinklers going off at 3am did not dampen spirits as we arose on Sunday for our final day of walking. Support was everywhere along Sunday’s route, from St. Petersburg firefighters, student athletes from Saint Leo University and Girl Scouts. Friends and family lined the sidewalk at Woodlawn Park. We enjoyed shade on the lawn and lakefront views during lunch at Crescent Lake Park. Coffee Pot Park and the palm-tree lined boulevard brought us to our final destination, where we were welcomed by hundreds of supporters, the 300 crew members, and a band of pirates with the Krewe of Seville. Crystal blue skies overhead and cool Florida fall temperatures set the stage for a beautiful Closing Ceremony, where one of our own Caymanites participated in the Survivors Circle. Words cannot adequately describe the emotion of this weekend. The outpouring of love, support and gratitude from strangers, and the amazing stories of survival and loss has forever touched me. http://ww5.komen.org/ http://www.the3day.org/site/PageServer
