Avon Walk for Breast Cancer 2010

Once again Third Ward welcomes the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer!  The event is a marathon and a half (39.3 miles) walk on October 24th and October 25th throughout the Charlotte area.
"The funds raised will go to the Avon Foundation's Breast Cancer Crusade. The Crusade’s primary focus is assisting the medically underserved population, including minorities, the poor, the elderly, and the under- and uninsured, with a mission to fund access to care and finding a cure for breast cancer. For more information on the Avon Foundation and the Breast Cancer Crusade, please visit www.avonfoundation.org."
Frazier Park will host the opening and closing ceremonies on Saturday and Sunday, October 23rd-24th, 2010 (the soccer field will be closed to visitors).  Walkers will begin and end their journey at the park, concluding on the 24th between 1:00-3:30pm.  Please expect elevated noise and traffic throughout the weekend.  Contact info.charlotte@avonwalk.org with questions or concerns, and please look out for visitors in need of directions or help.  Thanks!
