Thanks to Katy and the Pink Pacers!

Katy, a fellow Junior Leaguer, and her "Pink Pacer" teammates recently did the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Washington, DC. Before they left for DC, Katy put a shout out on Facebook, inviting her FB friends to post the names of people we wanted her to walk in honor or memory of. My mom, LaNelle Looper, is a breast cancer survivor, so I posted her name for Katy. After the walk was over, Katy posted cute pictures on Facebook, including a picture of the backpack she carried with her on the Avon Walk. In the middle column, above the pink part, is my mom's name! Thanks, Katy!!
