This weekend, thousands of people will gather to raise money to help fight breast cancer. People who have raised at least $2,000 can walk 60 km for charity. People who participate say it’s an emotional walk.
One walker a couple of years ago told me that a child had picked flowers and was handing them out to the walkers with a simple “thank you” as they went by his house.
It’s a great event, and deserves our support.
Unfortunately, the organizers make it difficult. They don’t release the route ahead of time, so friends and family can’t go to a certain spot to cheer the walkers on. I’m sure it would be a great motivation if, in the middle of 60 kms, they see family cheering and supporting, and then a couple of kilometres later, they see some friends along the route.
What would be the harm in releasing the route ahead of time?
