My daughter and I did the walk yesterday, it was more like "botando basura por la vida" ...imagine...30,000 Dominicans throwing their trash all over the botanical garden...real nice! :tired:

JUanita so what did people learn from this march. I always wonder how those marches help with the cause. Did people come out more knowledgeable about how to prevent cancer? i'm curious.

The only informative document we received was a small flyer at the door when we arrived, which of course ended up all over the floor. I am not sure if during the concert they talked a bit more about cancer, we left as soon as we passed the finish line. Big pushy crowd is not my thing.

Nice photos, juanita!
Good point, MAR - do they raise money? Is it an opportunity for people to be exposed to information on how to prevent cancer, as well as promoting healthy habits like walking which are believed to reduce the risk?
