We launched our Team NED (No Evidence of Disease) campaign this year on NED Day (February 27th) and geared up for our annual bake sale. The dietitians (and a speech language pathologist) baked in full force. We had 3 tables full of goodies. We take great pride in people letting us know that it is one of the most professional bake sales people have been to.
Unfortunately, I cannot seem to find the photo of our tables packed with goodies. It is one of my favorite days, I get to spend the day meeting fellow cancer survivor/fighters and discussing baking with people who stop by the table. Our bake sale broke all the records this year as we raised, $2,198! That's just nuts for baked goods!
Yesterday, was a great day for the Lahey Health 5K Cancer Walk and Run! Team NED was out in full force with friends, family, and colleagues. Team NED recruited 3 more cancer survivors to our little team the could. We had a great day running, walking, and our finally fundraising tally was $5,043! Yay! Team NED had the overall female runner winner, again, yesterday (2015, 2017, 2018). It's fun to still have fast running friends! It's such a joy each year to have all my friends and family there and bringing their friends and family and watch the team expand (and their kids grow!) Shout out to my high school teammate who helped me run a respectable 26:52 (slowest 5K ever), but way better than what my training runs have been. But, I still beat my oncologist, so that's a good day.
Thank you to all who donated, baked, ran or walked. It made yesterday a great day and raised money for the Lahey Health Cancer Institute.
PS. Had may mammogram on Friday and got the all clear. Made for an extra great race!
