On September 17, 2011 I volunteered at the Walk to Beat the Clock for Cervical Cancer. This volunteer work was an amazing experience where I helped others and learned a lot at the same time. When I got there, I first helped pack goodie bags for the runners. In the goodie bag was a pamphlet with information about cervical cancer, a pen and a button. When I finished that, I helped pass out signs to the teams that were walking. Next, I helped put certificates and awards together for those who went beyond the expectations and raised over $1,000.00 for cervical cancer. Once the walk began, I cheered for the runners and walkers! I screamed and yelled so much that I lost my voice the next day! When the walk was over, I passed out waters and healthy snacks to those who participated. When the Closing Ceremony started, I passed out awards and certificates. Volunteering at the Tamika and Friends Walk to Beat the Clock was fantastic and I am very grateful to have been able to help out and have that opportunity. Every hour a woman is diagnosed with cervical cancer and every 2 ½ hours a woman dies. These astonishing facts are hard to hear, but with help we can beat the clock!
