Two Michigan area college students ran 60 miles over 3 days to help raise money for the Susan. G. Komen breast cancer fund. Running 20 miles a day, the two girls and their mothers raised over $7,000 between them in order to participate in the race, which ended each day at a campsite before waking up to finish the next 20 miles. “Before I did the walk, I wasn’t aware of how much I could actually do,” Madeline Michels said. “Even if you just start a 5k here designated to breast cancer, then that can make a difference in the statistics.”

Blisters on the Feet
When tight or ill-fitting footwear is worn, many times a foot blister may develop. Blisters can even develop by constant rubbing from the shoe, often times leading to pain.
What is a Foot Blister?
A foot blister is a small pocket that is filled with fluid, forming on the upper most layer of the skin. Blisters are filled with clear fluid, and may lead to drainage of blood or pus if the area has become infected.
How do they Form?
Blisters of the feet are almost always the result of shoe rubbing and constant friction of the skin and material. Long periods of walking in shoes, sandals, or boots which don’t fit properly can result in a blister. Those who often have moisture or humidity in the feet, are prone to blister formation easily.
Prevention & Treatment
Proper care is vital to alleviate pain and prevent infection to the affected area of the foot. The best treatment is to leave them alone. New skin will develop under the blister and during the healing stages, your blister will pop.
