I’ll be walking in the Susan Komen breast cancer 3-day walk this October 17-19 in Philadelphia. The walk covers approximatly 60 miles in three days and will give the opportunity to stretch yourself beyond limits you thought you had. The great news is that you still have plenty of time to train for the walk, even if you are starting in ridiculous bad shape (as I am) and even if you think you stink at raising money.
The walk itself is a beautiful collaboration of thousands of women and men who come together for 3 days to service their dream of eradicating breast cancer. It’s an affirming, inspiring event that will make a lasting impact on your life. It’s a chance to do more than you thought you could do while befriending other amazing men and women who thought the same thing about themselves before they embarked on this journey.
If you’re interested in a joining a team of feminist law professors who will do something extraordinary to raise money for other women in need, take a look at http://08.the3day.org/site/PageServer. If you decide to sign up for the walk, let me know if you would like to be on the Feminist Law Professors team, so we can support each other not just at the walk, but in our journey to reach the starting line. Part of our preparation will be selecting approropriately ironic and/or funny t-shirts emblazoned with our no-doubt very clever team name.
