Susan G. Komen Central Indiana Race for the Cure

In the early hours of Saturday April 16, I will be participating in the 20th Race for the Cure event here in Indy. In case you’ve been under a rock you’re whole life, the Komen Foundation was organized to help fund breast cancer research, along with educating and informing people about the details of breast cancer.

My mother, along with several of my friends, have successfully battled breast cancer, and therefore I’m very passionate about raising awareness for breast cancer research, treatment, and early detection. If you feel the same, I am raising funds for this year’s race, and would greatly appreciate your contributions, large or small. Simply click the link below to make a safe and secure donation.

If you’re wondering where exactly your money will go, here is a brief explanation from the Komen Indy website:

“Of the net proceeds from Komen Central Indiana efforts, 75% will stay in Central Indiana to provide breast health education, breast cancer screening and detection services, and survivor support for underserved women in our 21 county service area. Check out our 2010 grant recipients.

The remaining 25% helps fund scientific and clinical research that is seeking improved diagnostic and treatment methods and ultimately the cures for breast cancer. Organizations interested in providing or currently providing breast health services in Indiana are encouraged to call 317.638.CURE for grant application information.”

I’m looking forward to this year’s event, and hopefully I might see one of you out there downtown!

The Bahamas – The Final Days

If you haven’t been following, here’s the previous days’ posts as well:
Days 1 & 2
Day 3
Day 4
Days 5 & 6

I’m currently writing this from 30,000 feet above the earth somewhere between Nassau, Bahamas and Washington D.C. I must say, it’s been the trip of a lifetime, and I’m definitely said to be leaving. I’ve discovered deep-sea fishing and scuba diving along with all of the many other amazing things that The Bahamas has offered to me this week. If you haven’t visited the Caribbean isles before, I definitely suggest you make plans to do so.

Another gorgeous sunrise through my bedroom window.

Anyways, I realized that I had complete forgotten to post about my Tuesday adventures, so I’ll do that here. With that, the schedule was set for us to do a land tour of the island, so we boarded up on a bus at 10 A.M. and hit the roads. The tour started off a bit slow with some driving around the town looking at the real estate in the area, as well as a new development being constructed across from The Sheraton. But after about a half hour of that, we drove out west toward the western tip of the island and discovered some of the most amazing natural sites I’ve ever seen in my life.

Tiger Woods’ new development.

We first stopped at an old slave plantation and learned a little bit about the slave trade and how it has shaped the Bahamian culture today.

Wooden carving at the site of where the slaves would be brought on shore to be sold. The meaning of the carvings is to represent the slaves with lost souls (no faces) looking out to sea for a way out.

Part of the park and former plantation was a set of cliffs that dropped off into some absolutely gorgeous blue-green water. We all contemplated jumping into the water despite warnings that it was only about 12 feet deep.

Not every day you get to chill out on the edge of a cliff.

Muggin’ again

We finally ended our trip on the most amazing beach I’ve never encountered. First, as you step into the shallow cove, you notice that that the water is literally the same temperature as a relaxing bath. Then as you keep walking further out, you realize that the water never gets above your thighs for a good quarter to a third of a mile. Crazy! However, what I think was the best part about this beach was that it’s completely uninhabited save for this one dude who literally lives off the land in a little hut. There were no buildings, no people, and no tourists. I could’ve stayed on that beach forever!

My favorite pair shoes ever, original Sperry Topsider boat shoes. Love ‘em.

Day 8

My final full day in Nassau was sort of a rest and recoup day for me. There were no activities planned, and I was more than okay with that. I spent pretty much the entire day outside either at the poolside or on the beach getting buried in the sand. I also discovered that being out in the Caribbean sun from noon to 6pm will burn through and sort of sunscreen one tries to apply. Thankfully, the seats on this flight are relatively roomy and comfortable; otherwise I might be in pain from shifting around my beet-red back.

Well, that’s the end of my journal of this trip. I hope all of you have enjoyed reading the stories of my adventures as much as I’ve enjoyed sharing them with you. It’s been an amazing trip, and hopefully I’ll be able to do this again soon and share even more stories and photos.
