Avon Walk for Breast Cancer


This year, on October 10th & 11th, I will be walking 39 miles in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

For the past two years I've cheered on a friend of mine as she completed the walk. Last year I walked the last two miles with her after meeting her at the cheering station, and when I got to the end I decided that this year I would do it too.

So I am.

And while I promise not to shamelessly solicit via my blog too often, I do need to raise $1,800 in order to participate, sooooo....

If you feel so inclined, please visit http://www.avonwalk.org/goto/Feet_First to make a donation. Even one dollar will help move me toward my goal, and help provide education and treatment for those who need it most. I'll be putting a link in the side-bar as well, if you need to think about it first.

And, of course, I'm sure I'll be blogging my progress as I train to walk a marathon--especially when I try to work that around the schedule of being a full-time camp counselor for all of August!

Please feel free to pass this along to anyone who you think might want to help this worthy cause. It's not for me, it's for everyone.

We now return to your regularly scheduled programming...

This sounds very tiring and rewarding. I hope you have a wonderful time and good luck with your fundraising.

I'm seriously thinking about doing it, too! I have to figure out where I'll be living and stuff before I commit. I'm so excited for you to do it and tell us about it!
