Two Komen runs = double the support

There are so many double entendres I could use, but I leave that for the comments.rftc_nav_hdr_rftc_logo

We’ve had a team (Komen Get It) for four years in the Houston Komen run. My wife started it with Sue whose lost her mother and a cousin to breast cancer, and my son has run it with me for the last three.

Times change. Sue moved to Denver, my son is off to college (but still doing work for two charities at UTA), and Audrey is out of town.
