Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, Santa Barbara, CA – September 7th & 8th

 

As you may know, I have accepted the challenge and am participating in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Did you know that every three minutes, another woman in the United States is diagnosed with breast cancer? I didn’t, and I was shocked to learn how prevalent this horrible disease has become in this country.

I am eager to get started with my fundraising and I need your support! I have pledged to raise money for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer as part of my participation in the walk. Your contribution will help to support medical research into the possible causes of and cure for breast cancer, education and early detection programs, and clinical care and support services for women with breast cancer in communities across the country. There is a special focus on helping medically underserved women, the poor, minorities, the elderly, or those with inadequate health insurance. And much of the money granted by the Foundation goes back to the communities where it was raised, supporting everything from local grassroots programs to national organizations.

It is faster and easier than ever to support this great cause — you can make a donation online by simply clicking on the link at the bottom of this message. Whatever you can give will help! I truly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.

Thank you for your support; you really do make a difference.

Stretching Guide

IMG_1411

Stretching Guide

Stretch prior to, during, and after a Training Walk to help warm up your muscles and prevent injuries.
1. Calf Stretch
Stand a few inches from a wall, leaning your forearms against it with your head down. Slide your left leg back away from the wall, keeping the heel on the ground, until you feel a stretch in your left calf. Hold for 20 seconds; repeat on right leg.
2. Quad & Knee Stretch
Stand a few inches from a wall and balance yourself with your left hand. Bend your left leg up behind you and grasp the top of your left foot with your right hand, gently pulling your heel toward your buttocks. Hold 10—15 seconds; repeat on other side.
3. Groin Stretch
Sit with the soles of your feet together at a comfortable distance. Hold your feet and slowly pull your torso toward them, bending from the hip, not the shoulders. Hold 15–20 seconds.
4. Hamstring Stretch
Sit with your left leg straight in front of you and the sole of your right foot resting on your left inner thigh. Slowly and gently lean forward from the hips toward your left foot. Do not lock your left knee—it should always be slightly bent. You can increase this stretch by wrapping a towel around your left foot and using it to gently pull your torso closer. Hold for 15 seconds; repeat with right leg.
5. Upper Hamstring & Hip Stretch
From a seated position, bend your left leg up toward your chest using one hand on your left ankle, and the other around your bent knee (you may choose to lean against a wall for support). Pull the entire leg toward you. Hold for 15–20 seconds; repeat with right leg.
6. Back & Body Stretch
With hands shoulder-width apart, grasp the top of a ledge, refrigerator, file cabinet, or anything firmly rooted that is slightly taller than you. With your hips directly above your feet and your knees slightly bent, let your body “drop” so that your hands and arms are bearing most of your weight. Hold for at least 20 seconds.
7. Shoulder Stretch
Raise your shoulders toward your ears, tensing the muscles in your shoulders and neck. Hold for 5 seconds and then relax; repeat 3–4 times.
8. Chest Stretch
Interlace your fingers above your head, palms facing upward. Push your arms slightly back and up. Hold for 10 seconds; repeat 3–4 times.
9. Triceps & Side Stretch
Reach arms overhead and grasp left elbow with right hand. Bend your left arm behind your back and gently pull your elbow behind your head. Keeping knees slightly bent, bend your torso to the right as you continue to pull your elbow. Hold 10 seconds; repeat on other side.
