Dear Mary's Marchers,
Hope in Motion 2023 will be our 12th year participating! We started 'Mary's Marchers' in 2012 walking with our mom as her battle against breast cancer began. The Mary's Marchers family keeps on growing each and every year as we continue to now march in memory of Mary.
We have raised over $50,000 throughout our many years for Hope in Motion thanks to ALL OF YOU! It was unbelievable watching not only your generous donations come rolling in but all of the awesome pictures of everyone hitting the roads all across the country not only in support of us but our mother and the Bennett Cancer Center.
We are back in person this year for Hope in Motion and this year continues our journey of walking in honor of our angel, MARY.
We lost our mother in November 2019. She fought what was the longest and most courageous battle of breast cancer we have ever seen. She was a fighter and role model to all lucky enough to know her. She taught us to never give up and to take one day at a time. She was a warrior and the leader of our family and of team Mary’s Marchers!
Her strength was undeniable and it was with the encouragement and love from all of you and the services the Bennett Center helped provide that pushed her to continue fighting while helping her stay positive and feeling good. As she always shared in her message every year, "I couldn't do it without the support of my loving family, all of my amazing friends, and my second family at the Bennett Center."
The Bennett Center not only provided our mom with the best medical care, but also the most loving support team consisting of doctors, nurses, and the entire staff.
We are so blessed to have been loved by the most wonderful person in the world. We wouldn't be who we are without her. She lives on in us all every day and we continue to hold onto her memory in all that we do. We find comfort in know she is always with us.
Let's continue praying for a cure for everyone still fighting and march in Hope in Motion again this year- bigger and better than ever!
The Somers Family
