Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Raising Money for Breast Cancer without asking for a Single Donation

Along with my participation in Relay for Life, I am collecting money for the Breast Cancer Network of Strength, and I won't even ask you for a dime. BumbleBee Foods has created
BeeWell Miles to help support Breast Cancer and make a difference.

Starting on April 1st, BeeWell Miles is encouraging participants to log in, and keep track of miles walked each day. They have created a site with coaches and nutritionist to help us get more active and eat healthier all while supporting a great cause. The nutritionists will evaluate your daily meals and offer alternatives to create healthier choices while still indulging your cravings.

Boog and I want to start jogging/walking for some needed exercise (for me) and for some special bonding time just mommy and son. We have already signed up with BeeWell and will be tracking our soon as we make it out the door. BeeWell is donating 15 cents for every mile walked by it's participants (up to $200,000) to the Breast Cancer Network of Strength.

It's not too late to get in on the fun, with almost 47,000 miles logged and over $7000 raised so far, this is an easy way to help others and yourself. The program runs through October 31st and with all the benefits of the site, you should, at the least, check it out.
