A huge thank you to Vacation Myrtle Beach for sponsoring our trip and inviting us to the Making Strides Against Cancer 5k Beach Walk at the Crown Reef Resort in Myrtle Beach

Hey guys! Brandon and I are home from our weekend in Myrtle Beach for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5k Beach Walk at the Crown Reef Resort and Waterpark. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I shared a lot of stories and videos of the walk. There was a great turnout and the weather couldn’t have been any more perfect for the event. Crown Reef Resort and Waterpark hosted a family fun day afterward so everyone could enjoy a bit of music and fun after the 5k.

To help raise money for the fight against breast cancer, there is a silent auction going on from right now until noon on 11/9. They are auctioning off all kinds of great stuff! There is everything from entrance to Myrtle Beach attractions to hotel stays to simple gear. The money all goes to breast cancer research so be sure to hop over there and take a look around. If the item you bid on (and hopefully win) requires shipping, shipping is usually free.

Brandon and I attended as guests of Vacation Myrtle Beach and were provided accommodations at the Crown Reef Resort and Water Park. We stayed in a King efficiency on the 11th floor of the resort which had an incredible view of the ocean. We stayed up way too late, bundled in a blanket, hanging out on the balcony watching and listening to the waves crash against the shore. It was beautiful to just sit and listen to the ocean. Even though I grew up near the beach in south Florida I’ll never grow tired of listening to the sea. 

Every room in the resort faces the ocean so there’s no way you could ever have a bad view and a little birdie told me they are going to be offering a big booking special on Black Friday this year so if you are hoping to get to the beach next spring or summer set a Black Friday reminder to hop on their website to take advantage of their special rate!

This year marked the third year the Vacation Myrtle Beach resort group has worked with the American Cancer Society to host the “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Beach Walk and Family Fun Day”.  

The 5k walk started at 9 a.m. on the beach of the Crown Reef Resort. Then, after we finished there was a Family Fun Day which included a chili cookoff between the top executive chefs in Vacation Myrtle Beach (I had a very clear spicy favorite), face painting, Salty the Shark appearances, a Magician, and more. 

Don’t forget to stop by the online silent auction (it’s available until noon EST on 11/9/17) and bid on the items that interest you. I guarantee there are at least a couple of things you’re going to want to get your hands on! If you’d rather donate directly to breast cancer research, you can do that here.
