Avon Walk Kick-Off

My good friend Rina did the San Francisco Avon Walk in honor of her friend Mary Davis that passed away earlier this year from breast cancer.

I am proud of Miss Rina's accomplishment! Not only did she walk 39 miles over a two day period she also raised over $2000 for the cause. I think Mary would be proud as well.

So here (and the posts that follow) is some of what I saw as I watched Rina's journey unfold.


Me, our friend Leah, and Rina's mom (Remi) surprised Rina on the Marin side of the Golden Gate bridge. With cow bells and signs, we cheered for the walkers as "Hookers for Hooters" sang "I Will Survive" and would announce the presence of "the few, the proud, the men!"
