Great Strides in our Town!

I've been meaning to blog about this for a while. Remember when I was supposed to have that meeting with that guy to go over starting a Great Strides Walk in my town? Yeah, well he called and canceled b/c he was sick. Which I thought was great, b/c we don't need any of us getting sick. He was supposed to call me back, but never did. I was going to call him, but I called him back the first time he said he was going to call me and never did! So, my husband and I had to make a decision b/c it was getting close to May(when most walks are). We went back and forth as to whether we should wait and see if this guy is for real and will actually get a walk started this year, or whether we should forget about him now, and just sign up for the closest walk to us. We didn't want to miss out on a walk this year, so we decided to sign up for a walk and wait til next year to start one in our town. It was kinda too late to get one started this year anyway. You need a lot of time to plan a big event like that.

So far, I know that I need to get a committee of like 5 or 6 people together to help organize the walk. I was happy to read Daniel's mom's comment today. I was hoping she would want to help. Now that I met another CF mom just up the road, maybe she can help too. If our spouses help too, that makes 6 right there!

I already have a few great ideas for the walk. And I LOVE the beaded necklace idea! I have had a lot of people tell me that they would definitely go to one in town. So I think we will have a great walk next year. I can't wait!!

Hopefully S & I will be able to drive out with the kids & walk with you next year!! I want to look for the nearest walk to our new town after we get there too but I'd really love to come out & support your first walk. You're amazing kiddo! I can't believe all that you've managed to accomplish in such a short time for your walk on Sunday. I take that back, I can believe it! You can do anything you put your mind to & more!!
