Issaquah resident Cinnamon Ruvolo is one who said she is ea- ger to take on the challenge of the 60-mile trek. "A good friend of mine, Eliza- done." The Breast Cancer 3 Day event will be held in 15 cities through- out the United States, in which all participants will walk an average of 20 miles per day, and raise funds for critical breast cancer re- search, education and community health programs. The ultimate goal, however, is to completely erase a disease that affects, and all too often takes, so many lives around the world. Participants have to raise $2,300 each before the event, beth Blencoe, did the event last with 85 percent of the net pro- year and after hearing about her ceeds going to the Susan G. experience, and just the sheer Komen for the Cure Founda- challenge of walking 60 miles, tion, and the other 15 percent was very intriguing to me," she said. "I was already an active walker with my dogs, so I thought, 'Hey, maybe I could do that, too.'" At first, the 60-mile, three-day walk seems like a test of physical endurance and fitness. However, as Ruvolo discovered, it is much more than that. "I was definitely originally in- going to the National Philan- thropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund.

At 3:30 p.m. Sept. 13, commu- nity leaders and rabbis will join the event, starting at the Lake- side Montessori parking lot at 2001 15th Ave N.E., followed by a parade down Black Nugget Road, taking the Torah to it's new home, Chabad of the Central Cascades Center, 24121 S.E. Black Nugget Road. Participants of the celebration will help an expert scribe com- plete the final letters of the scroll. The Torah scroll, one of the Jewish people's most sacred ob- jects, has roughly 600,000 hand- written letters. With a feather and special mix for ink, the scribe writes the five books of Moses on roughly 54 pieces of parchment. The average process takes more than a year to pro- duce the beautiful workmanship of a Torah scroll. When a scroll is completed, it calls for a great celebration by the city greeting it to its new home -- the Holy Ark in the Syn- agogue: All the Torah scrolls join the greeting procession as they accompany the dancing, which begins from the street. The Chabad of the Central Cas- cades' Torah was donated by Mendy and Chanie Fischer, of Brooklyn, N.Y. They will join the celebration. All are welcome to attend the celebration.
