Having Fun While Supporting a Cause

Eight students from our Southern Nevada PAX group recently went to San Diego for a long weekend together with host families Walker and Piccini. We had a great time walking on the beach, going to SeaWorld, relaxing in the hotel whirlpool and taking “selfies” everywhere.

But the most memorable part of the trip was helping at the Avon Breast Cancer Walk. We got up very early in the morning on Friday to see the opening ceremony and help with the IDs for the walkers. The next day, we went to one of the stations that the walkers came by to cheer them on, and we visited their camp at night. It was a lot of fun, especially because we were wearing self-made tutus and fairy wings, and we were covered with cupcake stickers that we gave to the walkers. It was great to meet all those people who help fight against breast cancer, and we all enjoyed our San Diego experience!
