We Walked Our Shoes Off
Oh man.... has it really been a MONTH since I last posted?!?
Well, we ROCKED THE WALK this weekend!
We had our first team shirts this year...got a lot of complements but have already started compiling our design ideas for next.
The weather was the best weather we have had for a walk since we started doing them in 2009.
Lots of friends and family came to share the day.
And the walk was a success!
A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who walked with us and donated to our team and supported us in all different ways. Because of you, the day was great! You make my girl feel like a princess! And for that, I am forever grateful!
Walk day is such a special time...
Morgan looks forward to the walk every year! She loves being with friends and family- all wearing the same shirts and walking for HER (even though she strolls in her stroller) And it's so important to her that people come. You might think she wouldn't pay attention.... But she does. This year our team was the largest that it has ever been with 15 walkers and we look to continue to grow next year.We honestly look forward for each person that walk with us!
I love walk day!
I love the excitement. I love seeing all those people coming together for the same cause.
It's exciting and emotional all at the same time! Seeing our family and friends there to support us... I don't have words to express how much it means to us. Then combining that with all these other families doing the same thing.... And walk day is also starting to become a day where I get to see other Mamas living this life, other Mamas who get it (and Papas, too!), others who understand. It's just a special day! Knowing that we are not alone.
We still are collecting money... So our total is not confirmed yet... But we will have raised at least.....
$1,600.00 (a record for us)
That blows me away.
The generosity our family and friends continue to shower on us - and on all of us living with Diabetes, is simply astounding. My heart just overflows... We are truly touched by each donation - no matter how large or small. It's the kindness that matters. And it's just amazing!
You know, it's about more than raising money.
It's more than raising awareness.
It's more than the good times.
It's more than the cute shirts.
It's about a CURE.
It's about giving my little girl the best shot possible at a long, healthy life.
That is what it boils down to for me.
It is all about Morgan. Keeping her healthy and alive for a long, long time.
And it's about all the other kids, too. It's about you.
So.... Thank You.
