MY FIRST INTRODUCTION TO THE MWCABC WAS THE WALK FOR THE LI 2 DAY
IT WAS JUNE 2007 AND I REMEMBER IT LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY

IT MADE SUCH AN IMPRESSION ON ME I CAME BACK FOR 13 YEARS IN A ROW
HOPING TO HEIGHTEN BREAST CANCER AWARENESS AND OF COURSE RAISE SOME DOUGH

I LOOKED FORWARD TO THAT WEEKEND EACH AND EVERY YEAR
TO PUT ON WITH PRIDE MY PINK WALKING GEAR

THE FIRST WEEKEND IN JUNE WAS USUALLY THE DATE
AND OVER THE YEARS MY EXCITEMENT NEVER SEAMED TO ABATE

FOR ME EVERY YEAR WAS SPECIAL BUT ALSO DIFFERENT
EACH MEMORY WAS SPECIAL SOME WERE HEAVEN SENT

I FORGED MANY FRIENDSHIPS I REMEMBER THEM ALL
WHEN THE TIME CAME THEY NEVER HESITATED TO ANSWER THE CALL

EVERY YEAR THEY TELL YOU TO GO OUT AND JUST HAVE SOME FUN
SOMETIMES YOU WALK IN THE RAIN OTHERS IN THE BLISTERING SUN

WHEN IT WAS OVER, MOST LOOKED TIRED AND BEAT, I HAD NO DOUBT
BUT YOU ALWAYS REMEMBERED WHAT THE WEEKEND WAS ALL ABOUT

ALL WALKERS WILL EXPERIENCE PAIN (EVEN ME) WHEN IT IS OVER AND DONE
BUT IT WAS ALWAYS WORTH IT BECAUSE IN THE END EVERYONE WILL HAVE WON

BELIEVE IT OR NOT THE TIME USUALLY GOES BY FAST
AND THE SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT ALWAYS SEEMED TO LAST

IN YEAR 11 THEY CHANGED THE VENUE OF THE GAME
BUT THE PURPOSE WOULD ALWAYS REMAIN THE SAME

THE ROUTE WAS NOW A ONE DAY 13.1 MILES FOR MOST STILL A FORMIDABLE TEST
BUT I KNEW FOR ME IT WOULD BRING OUT MY BEST

BY MY LAST YEAR TEAM MANHASSET HAD GROWN TO OVER 20 STRONG
I WAS ALWAYS THRILLED TO HAVE COME ALONG

THE STORIES OF THE SURVIVORS AND THE LOVED ONES WE LOST ALWAYS MAKES ME SHED A TEAR OR TWO
AND WHEN THEY ASKED ME WHY I WALKED EVERY YEAR I ALWAYS TOLD THEM IT WAS BECAUSE OF YOU

IT WAS AN EXPERIENCE I WOULD NEVER REGRET
AND CERTAINLY ONE I WOULD NEVER FORGET

FINDING HAPPINESS BY HELPING OTHERS LESS FORTUNATE OUT
IS REALLY WHAT IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE ALL ABOUT

WITH MUCH GRATITUDE,
MARK AND MUFFIN SAUVIGNE
