Adventist HealthCare Employees Join Avon Walk
By Cindy Glass
From the Support Center, Monique Saunders, a scheduler in Adventist Home Health’s Rockville, Md., office, walked a total of 23 miles over two days. This was her sixth year participating in the event.
“The Avon walk was amazing—it always is,” Saunders said, citing the tremendous support walkers receive from cheering crowds during the long journey. She also noted the encouragement walkers receive from each other, including one whom she simply calls T-shirt Man. “Every so-many miles, if you are lucky to see him, he has a different T-shirt on, from a different college and/or state,” she explained.
Saunders also talked about Cow Man, who wears a cow costume and tells the walkers how “udderly proud” he is of them. “It is just the kind of encouragement you welcome when you feel like you cannot go any farther,” Saunders added.
Adventist HealthCare appreciates everyone who gave his or her support and participation for the event. For more information, visit www.avonwalk.org.
