{As a graphic designer, its always important to invest in awesome books like the one above for inspiration and to remember that somebody out there in the world is way better at drawing free hand typography than you. Just one of the many things I wish I had time to work on!}

60 miles in three days? I can do that.

Many of you guys may know- but on Novemeber 2-4th I will be walking....

60 miles in 3 days.

Am I crazy? Yes. It is for an amazing cause? Heck yes.

Last year around Christmas- my lifelong best friend, Carly Beckham, approached me about participating in this walk with her. I knew it would be a process and commitment to raise $4,600 total for us to both participate in the walk, along with many hours of actual walking to prepare for the 3 day journey.....but I also knew it was something I wanted to be apart of. So I accepted the challenge.

{Carly & I}

If you not sure what the Susan G. Koman 3-Day Walk is all about I encourage you to check out the short video below! It explains and gives an insight into what Carly and I will be doing in those 3 days. I promise it will be hard to have a dry eye by the end of watching it!

Nobody in the Briscoe family has ever been affected by breast cancer that I know of, but lets be honest- I am so over any kind of cancer in general. I feel like every time I turn around I learn that somebody new has cancer or is in the middle of the fight to beat it. So if I can personally raise $2,300 to put a dent in funding breast cancer research and potentially help find a cure- I'm all for it.

Knowing that Carly and I had a long fundraising road ahead of us- We decided to make some t-shirts and have all the profits go towards our overall fundraising goals. Thanks to so many friends and family and one huge garage sale- together we have raised over $2,800 of our $4,300 goal and we could not feel more blessed! We are so ahead of the game at this point- BUT we still have a lot left to raise.

We are selling the t-shirts for $20 each and 100% of the profit goes towards our ultimate goal of $4,600. If you would like to purchase one please email and we will make arrangements to get your shirt to you either via shipping or local dropoff (if you are in the Plano/Frisco/McKinney) area. Below is a shot of what the back of the shirt looks like!

Also, you can always make donations directly by clicking HERE! Every dollar counts and we are blessed by each donation!!

Another way you can help Carly and I out is simply pray for us on those three days. Pray that we encounter people along the walk that need to hear the Hope and Love of Jesus Christ! Because even after all the funds have been raised...and the walk is over....Jesus is and will always be our ultimate healer.
