A Mom and Mini-Me Walk in honor of Avon Walk Breast Cancer Awareness Event

Last time, I said "Just drink Coffee!" as part of my 5 No-Brainer ways to help show support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, as a practical alternative from one's inability to do the walk or run, on well-attended events hosted by two infamous organizations every year: Avon Walkhappening today at uptown Charlotte} and Susan G. Komen. It was, and still is, a brilliant idea, but sometimes, you just have to walk the walk...
Walking the road to recovery

for friends battling cancer...
To keep up with the tradition, and to show my daughter the significance of today's event - and why her father is away since 4am this morning for it - my 6 year old daughter and I embarked on a walk of our own! We did a Mom and Mini-Me walk on a race track nearby in line with Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Charlotte event where my husband is a volunteer crew Team Leader for the 3rd year!

For those who perishes from it every 15 minutes...
