The Burger King Breast Cancer Awareness truck and tractor pull gang would like to say thank you. No matter what your role was in this event, it made a difference.
So many people thanked us during the event because cancer had affected someone they loved in their lifetime. It was such an honor to hear their stories and get a hug. When the breast cancer survivors walked the pink runner on the track to be recognized for their battle against cancer and received a pink carnation, the spirit of success for each woman was so powerful.
We couldn’t have done this without a lot of help. Whether you answered a phone call or donated an item or volunteered before or after the event. The people at the offices who covered while we volunteered; vendors that donated some of their proceeds; sponsors who made it possible for us to get started; merchants that demonstrated farm and safety equipment; the Vine Grove pink fire truck; and pullers, local and out-of-state, for putting on an awesome show. We had volunteers who worked countless hours. Thanks to the radio, newspapers and television channels we were able to get fans from several counties. We personally appreciate everything that was done and would like to say thank you.
The fans who attended made a difference. We were able to give the Susan G. Komen Foundation a check for $12,174.25. We hope to be part of stomping out breast cancer in someone’s life.
On Monday when everything was done and things returned to normal, we actually felt sad it was over. So we proceeded to begin to start work on next year’s event. We aim to be bigger and better. I hope we can count on everyone again. Next year’s date is Oct 11 and 12.
Remember as my sister-in-law Carolyn says, “Don’t count the days. Make the days count.”
