Tucson Heart Walk

I was honored to be a part of the 2011 Tucson Heart Walk! The American Heart Association works diligently to promote prevention and awareness of heart disease and stroke and the Heart Walk is a fun way toget the whole family involved. It was a beautiful Spring day and PERFECT for a 5k walk through Reid Park. Find a Heart Walk near you!

One of the best parts of my job is the reaction that I get when in costume. I cannot even tell you how many times people ask to have their faces painted like mine - what a wonderful compliment! This year's Heart Walk was no exception. Thankfully, I was prepared and every time someone asked to be painted to look like me, I had them pose for a photo. Here are some of my faves...

I also had fun with some of the vendors! The folks at the Ina & Thornydale Starbucks were in the booth next to mine and being that Starbucks is high on my list of favorite things, I could not passup an opportunity to show my love. Here is a pic of me and two of the Barristas and the coffee cups that I painted for them :)

I had such a wonderful time at the Heart Walk and hope that I have the opportunity to do it again!
