Avon Walk for Breast Cancer: Washington DC
May 3-4, 2014
Walking from the Washington Monument Grounds to Meadowbrook Park and Back Again
The walk route to and from the Washington Monument Grounds and Wellness Village will consist mostly of sidewalks and city streets. The 2-day route will give you a glimpse into some of our Nation’s Capitol’s most exciting sites, like the Jefferson Memorial and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial!
The route itself will be clearly marked with directional signage and other markings. This is how you will navigate the route during the event — by following the signs.
There is also a route support team called "the Sweep Team," which is available to help you while you are on the road between Quick Stops and Rest Stops. Overall, the route will take you through some of Washington, DC’s most beautiful neighborhoods, and is designed to be safe, fun, and interesting!
