Join Me & Make

a Difference

Every once in a while we are given the opportunity to be a part of something greater, grander and bigger than we ever could ever imagine. I have that opportunity, again, for the third year and I am asking you to join me.

It started back in 2009 when the Redneck Riviera Chapter of Wonderful Wacky Women on Perdido Key Florida started a ripple in the pond. They organized a race to raise money for cancer research specific to women. Their success was amazing. Not only did they raise significant money but In so doing, they unified their chapter of women for a common cause and they did it with more fun and laughter than anyone should be allowed!!! They invited me to join them that first year and on a whim, I drove up to the beachy, little island, just off the coast of Pensacola Florida. I was so inspired, touched and uplifted by what these women had done, I decided then and there, to put my full support behind them.

group run

Throughout the next year, with the accumulation with their second annual run, that ripple gained momentum and turned into a storm of love, laughter and friendship that gave their organization even more power and strength. They succeeded in making a difference with both their monetary donations to the ACS as well as bringing attention of ovarian cancer to more women with the hopes of eariler detection and cure. Not only was it easy to continue to lend my support, but an honor as well. Women, both individually and in groups, came from all over the region to join us and the numbers grew exponentially. The good works accomplished that day were dwarfed only by the extraordinary, lasting friendships and sisterhood that grew from the event.

This year, 2011 we are having a whole Wonderful Wacky Women Week, a special Wonderful Wacky Women Wednesday at the Flora Bama, and thanks to the City of Pensacola, FL, Escambia County Commissioners, City of Orange Beach, and City of Gulf Shores, Alabama, October 29th has officially been proclaimed as Wonderful Wacky Women Day. This years celebration on the Redneck Riviera will whip up a tidal wave in hopes of wiping out Ovarian Cancer in our lifetime. "The Redneck Riviera Chapter of Wonderful Wacky Women and the Mighty Men Who Love Them" will continue to make a difference. Of this there is no doubt. I for one, intend to ride the wave of this Sacred Sisterhood, and be a part it all.

The question now is, will you be there to run or walk with me?

Details of the Race

That May Save Your Life

If you'd like to join me, and all the Wonderful Wacky Women of the Redneck Riviera on Perdido Key October 29th, here's all the juicy the details:

The race starts at the world famous Flora Bama right on the Flordia/Alabama state line. The course is laid out so that you can choose to be a part of a 4 mile run, a 4 mile walk or a 1 mile walk. (Yes, it's miles, not kilometers) We draw some serious runners and a lot of fun runners, but the division of 4 mile walkers and 4 miler runners is about 50/50. We think that's because they're all having too much fun chatting and want to make sure they enough energy to dance across the finish line... a favorite tradition of the event. The donation to run is $100 for adults age 16 and up. Active military families and Wacky Wannabes ages 12 to 16 are just $25.

The fee for the one mile walk is the same but gives all wacky women the opportunity to participate, even if you're not up for the full 4 miles.

Post-Race Party at the Florabama
Once again the amazing folks at the Flora Bama hosted our Post-Race Party. This is where the real fun began.

Your fee includes your race t-shirt, designed by yours truly, your electonic digital number for the race. a goodie bag full of wonderful goodies donated by all my wacky friends and local businesses and the most important thing, tons-o'fun!!!!

Wow Suz! This is amazing! I think it is on my goal list to make it out to this someday if you continue to do these in the future. A beach day sounds about right this time of year!
