I need some ideas for a good team name for the AVON Breast Cancer Walk!!!?

So if anyone can throw some ideas out there for me, it would be greatly appreciated. I am forming my own team for the Avon breast cancer walk here in Boston and would like to get some ideas from people. I would like a team name to incorporate anything with breasts (obviously), Boston, cures, anything. Here are some ideas people have already; Boston Bosom Buddies,
Boston Boob Brigade, Saving 2nd Base
Rack and Roll
Magnificent Melons.

Thanks in advance.

– Boobs for the Boobs
– Real Men Save Boobs
– Boston Pink Sox
– Gaht Milk? (boston accented 😉 )
– Taking One For The Team

Though, I think Saving 2nd Base is brilliant! Too bad it’s already taken.

Please help! Cancer 3day walk information?

I am 15 and thinking about walking for the 3 day Susan G. Komen cancer walk this summer. I would like some advice from any past walkers and would also like to know things such as: Are there any breaks during the day? And what places do you walk to/through? (I would be walking in Chicago or Michigan). Any helpful information would be appreciated! Thanks!
I would also like to know about the money raised. On the online sign up sheet it says "agrees to earn a minimum of $2,300"? How do i get this? Will i need to find a sponsor or something?? Please help!!

You can check the website for information. If you are walking to support this cause it is expected for you to get sponsors that will agree to donate money. So you need to ask as many people as possible for sums of money that will total up to at least $2300 – please notice that as a minor you will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. You should also note that in order to walk as an individual they are requesting a $90 registration fee.

Walking the Susan G komen 3 day in Boston for Breast Cancer awareness… Need a cute funny name for a cookbook?

Walking the Susan G komen 3 day in Boston for Breast Cancer awareness… Need a cute funny name for a cookbook?
Need to raise 2300$ in order to participate, one of my fundraiser ideas is a cookbook that will be sold locally. Its compiled of recipes from breast cancer survivors and loved ones who have had some one pass from breast cancer. However I do not have a name for the book yet….. any cute funny ideas?
The name of our team is Boobie Brigade if that helps….

Great for you. I may be interested in purchasing your book. Let me know if I can buy one. They are great fundrasiers, a local group here did one and 2 years laters is still selling well. So keep any left over prfots for next years marathon, or donate to Breast Cnacer Awareness.

When is the walk? You will need a couple fo months for the book to be compiles, then printed, then time for it to sell. So just keep it in mind.

****Where are you from. I know a lot of people are going the Boston route but also try do to something locally insipired. Is there something that your town is known for?

Sheesh I am having a hard time coming up with some neat ideas…

This one is bad but it’s a start.

Walking is for Boobs

Avon breast cancer walk..have you ever done this walk? Id like to hear froms soemone who has?

Im doing this next month and would like to hear more about personal experiences during the walk if its as exhausting as it sounds or if the moment gets you through. What its like during and after(back at the tents where you sleep), just general thoughts about the whole experience. And about how long it takes to walk per day. Day one is 13.1 miles.
Thanks.

No, but I might do it this year. I believe it’s in September. I would walk for my Aunt who has breast cancer

Guardian for 3-day for the cure breast cancer walk?

I am planning on doing the 3-day with my friend and her mom.
We are both 16 and it says we have to have a guardian on the walk.
Can her mother be considered my guardian as long as my parents allow it?

There is no other way for me to be able to do the walk unless she can be my guardian.

i think that would be ok good luck take care, mike uk
