Witches Wrock for Breast Cancer

Today and tomorrow I will be taking part in the Avon Walk for the Breast Cancer, a 39-mile walk benefitting research and prevention of breast cancer. In true Harry Potter spirit, a band of wizard rockers have come together to create Witches Who Wrock, an iTunes-exclusive album, the proceeds of which will be donated to the cause. Breast cancer affects hundreds of thousands of women each year and in 2004 had a higher than 20 percent mortality rate in the US, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. One of the disease’s most recent victims was Harry Potter’s own Dame Maggie Smith.

As soon as the benefit album is available we will post it here on Leaky; in the meantime we owe some special thanks here at Leaky for the witches who truly do wrock:

Dolores and the Umbradges Ginny and the Weasleys The Moaning Myrtles Fred and George the Band Roonil Wazlib Riddle TM Romilda Vane and the Chocolate Cauldrons The Butterbeer Experience The Gringotts Grrls The Parselmouths Tonks and the Aurors

You women are fantastic, thank you! To join in the cause, or if you will do me the honor of sponsoring me in this walk, please visit my Avon page. Thank you!
