Walking for a Cause - 9/16

9/13/2007 02:11:00 PM
I suppose its best to get all the walking in now while the weather is still decent. No one's going to do a charity walk in November when it's freezing out. Personally, I find it hard to roll about of bed in the morning for the 5 months spanning November to March.

Coming up this Sunday 9/16 there are two walks for you to choose from. Or if you're really ambitious, you could try to do both.

The 15th Annual Lupus Walk on the Charles starts at 9am with registration and then the walk commences at 10am. The walk will start at Artesani Park in Brighton. Click (here) for directions. I think that this is a 3 mile walk, but I can't be certain. The website doesn't really have much information on it.

The Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk is also going on this Sunday.

The Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk gives participants the opportunity to follow the course of the 26.2-mile Boston Marathon in honor or memory of friends, family, co-workers, and patients facing all forms of cancer. It is the only event other than the Boston Marathon itself that is sanctioned by the Boston Athletic Association to use the historic route. Walkers choose from one of four route options designed for everyone from the marathon enthusiast to the youngest walker.

Click (here) to see the different routes and their starting times. Routes range from the full 26.2 miles down to a 3 mile walk.

If you're really ambitious, do the Lupus walk in the morning and then the 3-mile Boston walk for the Jimmy fund at 2pm. It's for a good cause and it'll help you burn off all those beers you sampled at the Riverfront Beerfest.
