It’s audience participation time! Please hum “The Price is Right” theme song and keep on reading:
Say you’re a 32-year-old woman living a very sedentary lifestyle. If you decided to work toward completing one of those long-distance walks for breast cancer research next summer, would you choose the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure or the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer?
Here’s where these walks differ: The Avon walk is 39.3 miles, while the Komen walk is 60 miles around Chicagoland. You have to raise at least $1,800 for the Avon walk, while the Susan G. Komen foundation asks walkers to raise $2,300 to join in. Proceeds of both races go to breast cancer research and to fund mammograms, etc., for the un/underinsured.
I have an inkling of which one I’d like to train for, but the comments box is curious to see what you’d pick for me.
