My Story

This October I will be walking 30 miles in 3 days down in South Carolina to raise money for breast cancer. Everyone who knows me, knows this is near and dear to my Heart ❀️ My Mom, Aunt and close friends who all have had to be diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Margaret Tappen, Barbara Lederman, Deborah Settembre, Christy, Emma Capasso, all have lost their lives to this. I may not walk all the 30 miles, but I will be doing all to support the cause.

We met when we were around 7 years old about 50 years ago – 4 young girls that grew up together and remain the sisters/friends they became so long ago! We all grew up on Long Island and spent most of our lives there. 2 of us remain there and 2 of us have moved to Hilton Head Island. Renee moved to HHI a few years ago – She had just finished becoming a warrior – a survivor – a survivor of breast cancer. She needed something to fill her sole. She was lucky enough to find this great event PLEDGE THE PINK and volunteered – a 30-mile walk – 10 miles a day for 3 days over different islands and locations in SC.

That first year she stood alone in the early morning dark as a volunteer and they called the survivors up to start the walk off, she burst into tears as she looked around and saw all these women who have survived, she had sorrow and HOPE.
She thought of friends and family who have suffered this terrible disease and remembered us – her 3 best friends on Long Island who were touched by breast cancer. One who is also a warrior survivor from a pretty young age, she was the first person we knew to have this disease and she battled and beat it. Another has lost her mother and Aunt to this terrible cancer, and I had a mother-in law who was a survivor warrior. Right then and there she promised herself she would continue to volunteer and do the actual walk for her 5 years clear, and she would call on us friends – sisters – flock stars to make a team to walk. Well, that time has come this is the year. She called on us girls and said we must do this – you need to do this with me – no questions asked – we were on board. Our team is officially named IslandgirlsBFlocking. This year we will walk 30 miles in 3 days. We will laugh and cry and be proud to commit to this challenge and a great cause. We created this page as a way to support other warrior sisters and to give to those who need our support with awareness, with their own battles!
In 2011, Pledge the Pink was a small, local, charity raceβ€”aimed at fighting cancer in South Carolina, and getting the lowcountry in shape. Now we’re an ambitious, not-so-small, breast cancer event that’s gotten almost 15,000 people off the couch and given over a million dollars to charities all across the country. Through there sister charity Pledge the Pink Foundation (formally known as Carolina Cups), these dollars provide gap funding for heroic, budget-restricted, nonprofit service providers. They are able to slice through red tape to support game-changing beneficiaries.
