My participation in 2010

I will be participating in the Avon Walk for breast cancer for the seventh time on May 15-16, 2010. I will not be walking because of an aggravated heal spur, that my Dr. advise that I do not aggravate by walking long distances.
I will still be fund raising and showing my support as crew member, which is an honor.
I will like to cheer the walkers on their walk in my Victorian attire. Victorians was such gracious greeters. It will be fun and cheerful. So walkers, look for me on the side line with a big pink Victorian hat, cheering you on.

Womem's Health Fair in Woonsocket
On Saturday April 17, 2010 , I attended the YWCANRI & Quota Club 10th Annual Community Hearing &  Health Fair  held at the Elk’s Club, 280 Social Street in Woonsocket.
I set up a table to raise awareness of breast cancer and to raise funds for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.
This will be my 3rd year attending the health fair. My good friend Joyce and the Director of the YWCA always presents me with a check for the cause.

It was an amazing day. I raised over $100.00 and meet a wonderful man with a heart of gold. He had a table next to mine. He was Erine Blanchette the Community Relations Coordinator for Mount Saint Rita Health Centre.
We enjoyed each other company and gave each other support.

All in all it was a day of teaching and learning. I meet a lot of health caregivers and I was proud to be apart of this wonderful program.

My Cheering Outfit On May 15-16th, I will be on the Hospitality Team for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.
I will cheering my walkers family into the Wellness Village. I will be dressed as an Victorian Lady graciously welcoming them home.
Today I started working on my skirt that I plan to wear that weekend. I made it out of a shower curtain, to make it rain proof. Every year ,it has rained the two days. It will make a parasol from an umbrella. I want to be well prepared.

Another successful Walk 2010 Boston had another successful walk this year (2010). Many thanks to our excellent host, Reebock.
I had a most glorious time cheering in the Walkers to the wellness village on the Reebock grounds.
The hospitality team was out in full Southern Bell gala, to welcome them home for the night.
The evening was spectacular and enchanting. I ,in my Victorian sleeping ware enjoyed a cup of tea before retiring in my tent.
 This was my first year as a Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Crew. I have walked for the last six years and this was another side of the walk that was just as important. I felt I have made a big difference in the fight to end breast cancer. GREAT WEEKEND!
