Walk Day!

Wow, I was just realizing today I started this post a while ago and never finished it!
It took me a while to figure out our grand total because we had so much money come in at last minute, I lost track!! 

But I have it now..

Are you ready for it???  

Our GRAND TOTAL from the walk is.....

$2,264 dollars!!!  That is almost 3x's the amount we raised last year!!!  

And we exceed our team goal!!!

I am truly blessed to have SO many people out there raising money and awareness for Type 1 Diabetes. This past year has been a wonderful experience.  Tim and I have truly felt your love and support. It is wonderful to see how many people will come out and show support for our Lovebug!  Even when it looked like it was going to rain the whole walk, you were all texting and calling me, letting me know you would be there rain or shine. 

Lovebug is why we do this. Why we raise the money and bug people to walk with us.  Why I have stepped out of my comfort zone to talk to whoever will listen about Type 1.  

It's a fight that I will win and will not back down from because  Lovebug and all the other children out there are worth it. They need a CURE.  

We are already starting to get some fundraisers started for next year.  We can't stop raising money. We can't stop raising awareness and educating people about the seriousness of this "invisible disease".  

Because Diabetes never stops, neither can we.  

Thank You for helping make our walk a success this year.

Enjoy some snapshots from the day!

Way to Go! It is funny....fundraising is the LAST thing on a list of things that I am good at. Heck, it's probably not even on the list! But somehow, I am able to put that aside and step out of the box too. I'll do whatever it takes to reach our goal...and that, of course, is a cure!
