-----UPDATE-----

Our team members didn't quite make the fundraising minimums needed to walk in the official event. That being said, we raised a respectable amount for a good cause, and we still want to be involved. So! We're planning a walk up the Capital Crescent Trail, which runs parallel to the path of the official event. Everyone remember to wear pink!

    Per the update, the new set date and time is fully inclusive which means everyone can join in regardless if they signed up for the Avon walk or not. This walk is unofficial and not associated with Avon.

    Avon requires all walkers to meet a minimum pledge to walk and if you don't meet it, you can't walk. Even though we didn't make it, we wanted to still show our support and give it a go anyway. So we threw this unofficial walk together.

    You don't have to contribute anything or pay any money or anything like that to come to this one. If anything, come out and enjoy the nice day for the leisurely stroll with good company. It's super rare to have a day this good in May.

    Seriously, everyone is welcome to this.

    And don't forget to wear your pink! If you don't have any, you're in trouble. lol Naw it's okay if you don't have pink either, but wearing it symbolizes your support for fighting breast cancer too.

    I just had someone I worked with die in a car crash late Friday night/early Saturday morning. So I don't know if I'll make it now or not cause of this loss.

    I think we should do this as a team if you haven't joined one already. I can put one together. What kinds of names would work?

    • Pinkie's Promise
    • Teeter Trotters
    • Pink Pony Parade
    • Pinkalicious
    • My Little Boobies

    For the record, Bosom Buddies is already taken. I was thinking of something with Bronies, though Bronies for Good is already a charity organization and I don't want to misrepresent them and Bronies for Boobies sounds... off putting [Much more Brony Boobies :O ]
