SPC: On the Street week 2


This weekend I definitely hit the street! Saturday morning my friends Jamey, Adam and I participated in the Revlon Run/Walk which is a 5k event to help raise money toward Womens Cancers. I am proud to say that I finished 18119 out of 33685. LOL Can you believe they clocked us! I love that! Too funny. It took us 1 hour and 39 minutes, 40 minutes of which were spent trying to make a left into the gates of the LA Coliseum. We had a ton of fun walking through downtown LA. The course was all around USC. There is a lot of cool old architecture and signage down there! This is the second time I have participated in the event. The first was in 2001 in NYC. That started in Midtown and went all through Central Park. It was also cool to walk through the streets on NYC early in the a.m. with no cars whizzing by.

Thank you to everyone who sponsored me on the walk. I was able to raise $550.00 of my $1000 goal. I was really impressed to have raised that much! I mentioned back in this post that all sponsors would receive a 10% off coupon to be used toward one order from my Etsy store as a thank you. They are taking donations until June 15th, so I will extend the incentive through then. It is not too late to make a difference and reap the rewards!!

This picture was taken just as we were getting started. You can see more photos from the event here.
