The 2010 TeamWalk for CancerCare event is less than a week away!  Below is the schedule of events for the day of the TeamWalk as well as some recommendations on what to bring to the event. Be sure to check the weather report before event day and the morning of the Walk to make sure you know what the forecast holds.

This promises to be a fantastic event that will raise a lot of money for Lowell General Hospital to provide programs and support for cancer patients and their families.

What to Bring to the Walk:

  • Donations – Bring the cash and checks that you have not mailed in. Put them with your pledge sheet in your personal pledge envelope.
  • Water – There will be water throughout the route but it is always nice to have your own bottle to carry with you and make sure you are hydrated.
  • Snacks – While small munchies will be available throughout the day, they do not serve full meals and you may want to bring snacks or a sandwich to keep you going.
  • Sunscreen – Even cloudy mornings can turn into sunny afternoons; make sure to apply or pack sunscreen in the morning.
  • Rain Coat or Extra Layer – Weather in May is constantly changing and mornings can still be a bit chilly, so don’t forget to pack an extra layer or rain jacket.
  • Comfortable Walking Shoes – Make sure that your shoes are broken in and comfortable to walk in.
