Zoom in on the baggage tent

Saturday evening my Dad and I set out in the rain, across a muddy park to the big pink tent.  I didn't think I could complete a moonwalk (marathon length) or even a half but they needed volunteers so several months ago we signed up and were assigned to the baggage tent - given the rain that was a lucky allocation.

We were in bright yellow t-shirts and the walkers were mostly in bra and super-hero themed costumes.  We collected their bags and stored them ready for when they had finished.

We watched the first batch set off at 11.30 pm then set off for home while they walked through the night to raise money to fight breast cancer.  Glad to have done a small bit to help.

Looking forward to seeing what else has caught the eye for zoom in and out this week.

Oh good for you - the thought of walking all night in the rain would put me right off - I'd rather just reach into my pocket to help!

Great photos! I know I couldn't cope with a rain walk so I'd be glad to be in the tent.:)

A great cause and it's fun that you got to be in the tent where it was nice and dry! And it's cool that you got to do this with your dad!

I'm happy that I'm finally able to add to your ZIZO list, and I hope you don't mind that I combined it with a scavenger hunt photo. :o) xo

Good on you for helping out this important cause. And I do love it when you get the "good" volunteer assignment (like one in the shade on a hot day or in a tent when it's raining).

Between your charity knitting and crocheting, and helping out as a volunteer for such good causes, Helena, your life is a shining example to us all.
