Favorite {Photo} Friday #42--Avon Walk

I'm training and fundraising for the Avon Walk again this year, and I'm not going to lie to you: IT KINDA SUCKS. Walking 15 miles in the rain is not really fun. Asking my friends and relatives for donations is really hard for me (and really pushes my boundaries). Spending my weekends walking for hours upon hours (upon hours) and then standing in front of Wal-Mart with my teammates asking strangers for donations is not in the top ten of my list of Ways I'd Like to Spend a Weekend--it's not even in the top 25.

I did this walk last year, so I knew what I was getting myself into. So why am I doing this again?

This photo says it all; I took it during the walk last year. I just happened to be walking behind this lady and I couldn't resist taking a photo... I had tears in my eyes and I wanted to remember the moment. Breast cancer is still taking lives, so I'm going to spend my weekend walking in the rain and standing in front of Wal-Mart, asking for donations. Wish me luck.

Yes, that picture says it all. What motivation to have that to keep you going on your walk. I keep toying with the idea of joining my friend, who has breast cancer, on the walk. You are the brave one for literally taking the steps to do it. I think the biggest thing holding me back is Sam. Training and taking care of him full time seem to conflict. Have a great weekend and remember to enjoy a glass of wine when you get home from your fundraising!

Ok, so I just spent the past 20 minutes trying to donate on your page but my blackberry doesn't like the website- can you email me your address again for the umpteenth time?

Cameron said...

Sure! But who are you, anonymous? :)
