39.3 Miles of Inspiration - Avon 39

39.3 MILES OF INSPIRATION

Thu Nguyen, Crummack Huseby’s VP of Finance, is clocking over 45 miles a week to prepare for the Avon 39 Walk to End Breast Cancer. She was inspired to do the walk for the first time after her sister was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Thu herself had a cancer scare that turned out to be benign but it also moved her to do more to help fight breast cancer, “I know how fast your life can change…”

Walking 39 miles is no easy task, and Thu relies on her Skora shoes and Adidas Ultra Boost sneakers that make her feel like she’s walking on clouds. When any pain sets in, Thu gets through it by recalling firsthand how surgery, radiation and chemo therapy affects her sister, “If these women can handle pains and side-effects brought on by these treatments, I can at least walk.”

But Thu’s not only doing this for her sister, she’s doing this for every woman, “One simple act today might help prevent/cure ourselves and/or someone we love in the future.” Thu’s personal journey is an inspiration to all of us at Crummack Huseby, and we’re cheering her on by donating to her Avon 39 Walk to End Breast Cancer.

We are proud to support Thu's efforts with a $1,200 donation. Please join us in wishing her well during this important charity walk.


If you’d like to support Thu on the Avon walk the weekend of September 10th, we’re sharing her pledge page here:
