What A GREAT Walk!!

We just got back from our walk not too long ago. We had a BLAST!! It was soooooo much fun! We had 20 people walk on our team! I never thought it would be that many! So many people showed us soooooooo much support. We can't thank them enough.
Big Thanks To All Our Walkers:
Rita
Casey W.
Casey C.
Missy
Stacie
Beth
Kathleen
Kaitlyn & Chris
Sue, Jenna, & Max
Karen, Dave, & Kylee
Travis
Sean
Brian
We also had some last minute donors. Thanks Rita and Kathleen for bringing our total to $1,894!! YEA!!
They announced that their were about 300 people total walking and all together raised $40,000. That's a lot of money!! I'm so glad that there are so many people dedicated just as I am to helping find a cure for CF. I can only hope that we can raise that much next year at our own town walk, and every year after that.
Everybody on the committee was so eager to find me and talk to me. It was kinda funny:) They were all very thankful that I brought such a big company name to their walk. They all asked if I would be back next year. I told them that we are planning on having one in our town next year(they didn't talk to me much after that:). It would be much closer for everyone we know. Plus there are so many families here that have someone with CF.
Thanks again everybody for ALL your support and donations! We appreciate EVERY penny! You have no idea how much it means to us. Thanks.
Well, it's all over. . . until next year=)

Well done to you all and all the supporters. You all need a pat on the back for your dedication to the cause. What help one gets in one country is carried over to the others when they have their conferences and every cent, every research and every commitment that is made helps us all. Thank you and God Bless you all.

Glad to hear you had a great time, 20 people walk with you, & you raised almost $1900...How COOL is that!
I can't wait till our walk on Saturday...at the boardwalk! Mom found someone to donate t-shirts with a picture of Lil Chris, but the shirts are only adult sizes, so I am going to make shirts for the boys to wear...their shirts will say I'm walking for my cousin!
Well, I have taken up alot of time this morning catching up...now I must go get my house in order and play with the boys!
Love to all!
