Description
Negative shows men, women, and children beginning the y-Walk in 1986. The photograph was taken from behind the people and shows them walking under the banner that reads: "Start. Avia. High performance athletic footwear." Some of them are carrying balloons. One woman in the foreground has stopped and is turned with her arm extended out toward another women with a coat and a camera.
On envelope: "1986 Y-Walk." "Executive Director Faith Rein (the top job had been renamed again) and President Sarah Janigian launched two annual events that heaped public attention on the association: the Y-Walk downtown in 1984, in which volunteers enlisted sponsors to raise money for YWCA programs; and TWIN, Tribute to Women and Industry, in 1985." From Fran Smith, "Breaking Ground: The Daring Women of the YWCA in the Santa Clara Valley, 1905-2005, " (2005), p.87
