For those of you in the Boston Area who are interested in showing up to cheer for my Lady and her compatriot as they walk the 3-Day for the Cure, information on the public cheering stations is below. A couple of notes:

I cannot, at the moment, tell you exactly when Becky will be coming by a given station. She may call me to give me an estimate of her pace on Friday, from which I could get an estimate - that worked pretty well last time, but is really a *very* inexact thing, and it can be kind of easy to miss them going by if you try to cut it close. I would generally expect them to be coming by a given station earlier, rather than later, but that'll vary with weather and such.

Posters and decorations are welcome. I may be doing some poster-making Friday evening - if you want to join in (Hey, arts and crafts are fun!), or want me to make an extra for you, I can do that. Please contact me.

In general, if you want updates or to check in with me to see if the ladies have passed a given station, drop me a line (LJ message, e-mail, or what have you), and I'll get you contact information.

Unfortunately, most folk work on Friday - the public cheering stations close before 5 PM, largely because the walkers are back in camp before then. But, if you have the time, showing the ladies you care would be awesome!

Friday, July 27

9:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
St. Paul's Church

Wellesley, MA, 02482

12:00 p.m. - 4:45 p.m.
DCR Boat Launch
53 Woerd Street
Waltham, MA, 02453

Saturday's the prime cheering day - the stations are in Arlington and Lexington - at these, you may look for me hanging out with a cooler of drinks and a camp chair.

Saturday, July 28

7:30 a.m. - 10:45 a.m.
Robbins Farm Park
51 Eastern Avenue
Arlington, MA, 02476

10:45 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Depot Square, Massachusetts Avenue & Depot Square
Lexington, MA, 02420

There are also cheering stations on Sunday - I won't be at these, as getting to them and then to the closing ceremonies (where I pick the ladies up) is exceedingly inconvenient. So, anyone interested in going to these could give the ladies a needed boost when they're really, really tired, as those last miles are tough. I know they'd appreciate it!

One of these is down in the Boston Public Gardens, which are lovely this time of year.

Sunday, July 29

8:15 a.m. - 10:45 a.m.
Cambridge City Hall
795 Massachusetts Avenue
Cambridge, MA, 02139

9:15 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Boston Public Garden (between Paul Revere and Swan Boats)
Intersection Commonwealth & Arlington Street
Boston, MA, 02127

I will be going to closing ceremonies, and traditionally we head to dinner (somewhere - we don't plan this ahead too much) afterwards. Anyone interested in coming to closing ceremonies - again, me with the camp chair.

Closing Ceremonies
Sunday, July 29, 4:30 p.m.
University of Massachusetts
100 William T. Morrissey Boulevard
Boston, MA 02125
