Avon Walk for Breast Cancer 2012

The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer was held July 7th and 8th  in San Francisco.  This was my 8th year to participate in this event.

It's a 2 day walk.  26.2 miles (a marathon) on Saturday and 13 miles (1/2 marathon) on Sunday.  The walk starts at 7am on Saturday in San Francisco, wanders through the city and then over the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito, Mill Valley and Corte Madera.  There is camping in Corte Madera with Mt. Tamalpais in the background.

Sunday begins at 7 am with the walkers heading back to San Francisco in a shortened reverse route.
I have had so many health issues this last year that I wasn't able to train for the event so I changed my participation status to a volunteer.  I helped take down the tents, load sleeping bags and gear, worked the information booth, and cheered the walkers at the finish line.  

Here's the finish line with the GG Bridge in the background.

I've already signed up for next year!!
