Our walk was a success! It was in the 60s (a bit windy but that's OK!) and sunny and beautiful! We had 3 little ones in strollers in our crew and all of them either slept/just hung out the whole 3 mile walk! I was impressed! Gavin was one of the sleepers :)
Our team raised over seven thousand dollars. SEVEN THOUSAND DOLLARS. SEVEN THOUSAND DOLLARS! SEVEN THOUSAND DOLLARS!
Did you get that? Ha! We are so impressed and dumbfounded that our friends and family stepped up to the plate and helped out our cause so quickly! We heard that more than $700,000 was raised at the walk so far (you can donate until June 30th) and that does not include the money raised for the walk in St. Paul on May 17th which we will probably also walk.
Next year I'm thinking we could set a goal for what... $15,000? If we can raise seven grand in just a few weeks I bet we can more than double that in a years time! If anyone has any fabulous fundraising ideas please share!
Haven't donated to this year's walk yet?!? That's OK! Please follow the link below to help fund the search for a cure! I am serious when I say that we are potentially just a few years away! I cannot wait until the day that I can tell my son, "When you were born, your disease was very scary and had many unknowns, but now that there is a cure we can all breathe easy (literally!) and just LIVE!" Please please donate to the link below! Every penny counts!
