Alzheimer's Walk 2009

I have a lot of blogging to catch up on! We have been BUSY lately, but I'm going to try to be much better about updating my blog. After all, it's the only way I can keep up with myself *grin*.

This past weekend was the 2009 Memory Walk for Alzheimer's Disease. Our team, Gray Wolf, happily participated in the walk. The weather was perfect and it was a great morning!

Team Gray Wolf in the Field of Teams:

Originally, our team thought we were going to have 7 or 8 members walking with us. Because of this, I had set our team fundraising goal at $1000, even though last year we raised just over $500. As it turned out, we only had one more walker than last year, but we still met our goal! We were just thrilled to raise over $1000 for the cause!
There were about 1100 walkers at the event, with a total of over $200,000 raise for Alzheimer's research. Together, we can make a difference!
Last year, Lisa was expecting Chloe, and this year I am expecting our {still nameless} daughter. I can't wait to bring her along on the walk next year!
Miss Chloe was happy to be walking for Pappy. She was so good as we hauled her all around that day.

THANK YOU to everyone who supported us this year! We had a great time!
