Members of the Williamsburg community joined William & Mary Law School students, faculty and staff in a breast cancer awareness walk on Duke of Gloucester street on Wednesday, October 20. 

The walk was led by William & Mary's Griffin and Rene Bowditch, ’82, dressed as the Good Health Fairy for Beyond Boobs!, a Williamsburg-based non-profit organization that provides support for young women diagnosed with breast cancer.  Participants followed the pair through Colonial Williamsburg, dressed in pink to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

"I'm always excited to meet fellow winged creatures, and I was really honored that the Griffin donned a pink boa to show his support for our cause of taking charge of your breast health,” said Bowditch, a former Legal Skills professor at the Law School and co-founder of Beyond Boobs! 

At the end of the festive walk, Bowditch thanked participants and stressed the importance of breast health education in early detection of breast cancer, asking the group to spread the word to family and friends.
