Diane Darling, a long-time Run for Her participant and co-captain of team Dorene’s Darlings, moved from California to Colorado earlier this year. Despite the distance from California and the annual Run for Her event in Los Angeles, Diane was determined to participate in the event and make it a success. Here is Diane’s story in her own words.
The first ever Run for Her Sleepwalker event was a success in Carbondale, Colorado!
Almost 70 people came out Sunday, November 9, 2014, early in the morning to learn about the symptoms of ovarian cancer and to participate in a 3.7-mile walk around the River Valley Ranch Loop.
I was thrilled with the community turnout, which included friends, local residents, and survivors of ovarian (and other) cancers as well as people just completing treatment. I was deeply touched to meet these people who have fought the battle and come out the other side. I congratulate them and admire them for participating in events like these. Even though I didn’t formally fundraise this year (the focus being more on awareness and prevention), our team, Dorene’s Darlings, raised over $1,400.00. I can’t wait till next year!
