Madame Ambassador is back! Today I will share about the Breast Cancer 3-Day Preview Expo which I attended this weekend.
The 3-Day Preview Expo is a 3-hour event which is designed to answer any and every question a walker, crew member, or other volunteer might have. You can come and go as you like, but workshops are scheduled the entire time; you won’t lack for things to do and learn!
This is one of the enthusiastic volunteers that greeted us as we walked into the conference center. He had his walking stick ready, and looked like he could go 60 miles with no trouble!
Inside the Expo were hundreds of people who came to learn more about the event. There were walkers, crew, friends and family, people who were ready to register for the 3-Day, and scores of volunteers including a Youth Corps who were giving demos of how to set up these hot pink tents – our home away from home for the two nights of the 3-Day.
There were activities: door prizes, cheering station to make signs, talking with crew and past walkers, a “dining table” with healthy snacks and chairs to sit and chat with other 3-Day participants, and outfitters with 3-Day gear and shoe-fitting.
The many workshops included:
- Life on the Breast Cancer 3-Day
- Camping and Packing Tips
- Shoe Fit
- Beyond Apparel
- Injury Prevention and Stretching
- Be Good to Your Body
- Blister Prevention and Care
- Breast Cancer 3-Day Fashion Do’s & Don’ts
- Ready, Set, Crew!
I left the 3-Day Preview Expo and more excited about, and committed to, my upcoming walk! Visit the Breast Cancer 3-Day to learn more about opportunities in your area.
Next week I’m going to tell you about some “Men with Heart.”
training: back on track after two weeks of illness in the house. This weekend is Boston’s Walk for Hunger, a 20-mile walk thru Boston, Brookline, Newton, Watertown, and Cambridge. I’ll walk this with a friend, donating to our local food banks and experiencing a long training walk.
fundraising: still going strong! We have yard sale scheduled for next Saturday.
