This coming Sunday, October 14, is the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Boston walk. The 5.7 mile walk is a great way to show support for the cause and spend time with fellow WLAers, since the WLA has its own team.
Want to join?
1) Join our team! – Go to http://makingstrides.acsevents.org/site/PageServer?pagename=MSABC_FY13_SignUp_Volunteer, click on “Join a Team,” and search for “Harvard Law School Women’s Law Association.” Then, click on our team name, followed by “Join Our Team,” and enter the appropriate information.
2) Donate – If you’d like to participate, we ask that you make a suggested donation of $10. If you want to give a little more, that’s great, but if you can’t, that’s okay too. To make a donation, go to http://makingstrides.acsevents.org/site/PageServer?pagename=MSABC_FY13_FindAnEvent, click on “Donate Now” under the “Get Involved” tab, go to “Donate to a Team” and search for “Harvard Law School Women’s Law Association.” You can then fill out the necessary payment information and make a donation. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can also circulate this information to friends and family members who may also want to support us.
3) Wear Pink on Sunday – Any pink apparel works. If you don’t have any pink or pink-like clothing or accessories, try to wear your WLA shirt if you have one.
4) Meet the rest of the team on the corner of Mass Ave. and Everett St. (in front of Wasserstein) at 8:45 AM on Sunday – The walk will take place at the Charles River Esplanade, which is right off of the Charles MGH Red Line T stop. Just so we don’t have to deal with the headache of trying to find each other at the event, I think it would be much, much easier to meet in front of Wasserstein and take the Red Line over together. Registration for the event is from 8 to 10 on Sunday morning, and we want to make sure we have plenty of time to register, hence the early meeting time.
5) Be healthy – Please make sure that your food/water needs are met before and during the event. I’m sure there will be water available during the walk, but I don’t think it would be a terrible idea to BYOWB (bring your own water bottle) either. The event is also rain or shine, so in the event that there is rain, please be sure to adjust your attire accordingly.

Hope to see you Sunday!
