Our 2010 Walk for a Cure for Cystic Fibrosis!

We had a GREAT day today at our CF walk:)
We had a great turnout, about 70 people. Not bad for our second year!!
We had lots of food and a whole lot of fun!! =)

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this fabulous day:)
Thank you to all our walkers and all who sponsored me and Lil' Chris:)

Thank you to all of our food sponsors:

Special Thank You to our entertainment:

You guys were AWESOME!! The kids had so much fun!! And so did I;-)

Last year our walk raised a total of $7,500, I think. By the end of this year, we will have raised close to $13,00!!! WOOHOO!!! Kohl's alone will have brought in a total of $5,000!!! THANK YOU TO ALL MY WONDERFUL KOHL'S ASSOCIATES THAT HAVE PARTICIPATED IN MY CF FUNDRAISERS AND WALK!!! YOU GIRLS ROCK!!

Thank you to Jack's Pack and Daniel's Friends for all your donations and support:)

Especially thanks to all those who say a special prayer for Lil' Chris each day and for ALL those suffering with Cystic Fibrosis! We greatly appreciate it!

As great as a day as it was, I was still sad every time I got a second to look around, b/c I knew Lil' Chris would have LOVED EVERYTHING!! He's at that age now where he would have LOVED the Fire Trucks, he would have LOVED the craft, and he would have LOVED all the balloon animals. Most of all...he would have LOVED just being there and running around. Maybe someday I will get up the nerve to take him. It's just hard with the possibility of cross-contamination.


PS. If Lil' Chris' cough doesn't get any better by Monday, I'm going to call the CF clinic to get an antibiotic. He is not sounding too good;( Please keep the prayers coming.

Looks like you had a very successful event. Congratulations! Our walk is in 2 weeks and I am hoping for nice weather. Last year it was a rainy day. Keep us posted on how Lil Chris is feeling. Nicole Smith

Great job all you striders in Wooster and all who donated for the cause. We had a fantastic day yesterday for our walk in Ocean City, NJ. Our team grew this year and wore red shirts. We had alot of fun. As of right now, if I include the grant we are suppose to get from Kohl's and what was donated online along with what was turned in at the walk we will be over our $2000.00 goal and I still have 3 fundraisers coming up.
How is Chris' cough?
Give my grandkids lots of kisses & hugs for me. Love you all.
