Team SmartPak is ready to begin our 39 mile journey through Boston for the 2010 Avon Walk for Breast Cancer! This year’s Avon Walk slogan is “In it to End it” and that’s what Team SmartPak intends to do! The team is close to raising nearly $24,000 in the fight against breast cancer and fundraising is sure to increase throughout the weekend.
We have been training since early in the year, walking during lunch, after work and on the weekends and the team is looking great! We are prepared with our sneakers, Camelbaks, good music and LOTS of pink and we are ready to start walking.
This year’s SmartPak team is made up of 11 employees, who have come to be much more than coworkers. The team has come together to train, fundraise and even squeezed in a team BBQ, getting to know each other over burgers and S ‘mores—with pink marshmallows of course!
Our 39 mile trek to help put an end to breast cancer is May 15th-16th (this weekend!) and will start and end at UMass Boston. There will be plenty of cheering stations along the way for those interested in coming out to root for Team SmartPak and we hope to see many of your smiling faces as we make our way across the finish line on Sunday afternoon!
