Oprah walk pics May 9th

Thursday, May 20, 2010

I know I know im late posting this but I wanted to share my experience with you. I did a 2 mile Oprah walk on May 9th Mothers day. The walk was located at Times Square in NYC. I have to say I had a great time with friends and everyone was nice. The special guest were Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson (who is very thin now I was jealous LOL) Bette Midler and Oprah of course. I walked for FFEMA charity which is supported by Mary J Blige in support of young women striving for success and I also walked for the Ovarian Cancer foundation. I couldn't believe that the weather was not supportive to us because it was very cold but we enjoyed it anyway. I love the experience and will sign up for the Avon walk in October. I'm just not going to ask one of my friends again to participate because she complained about it being too cold the whole time.

Me and my friends at brunch after the walk. Ok I didn't stick to eating to well on this day, But it was well worth it.

The start of the walk

Couldn't get clos enough to get a pic of her on stage so I had to take it from the screen.

    Thanks for posting these pictures. I missed seeing them before now. It was cold in IL too and the Race for the Cure was on Sat the 8th. I didn't get to walk this year, since I had another obligation.

    Good for you for walking for such a good cause. I have checked out the 3 day walk. Closest one is in Chicago, but I don't know anyone who will walk with me. I'm going to try to find some 5K walks closer to home. You are my inspiration!!! Thanks!
