Our 1st Walk to Cure Diabetes

 2011 Walk to Cure Diabetes

As the sun was shining early this morning, I knew it was going to be a great day!  The main reason for my happiness was that we were going to be participating in our first walk to cure diabetes.

 As we arrived at the park, I felt so excited to be around people that either had diabetes or were supporting the cause.  They were expecting around 3,000 people.  There were people as far as the eye could see.  It was very overwhelming to see the support.

As a family team, we were able to raise approx. $950.00! WOOHOO!

JDRF provided some fun bouncy activities for the kids including this hilarious "horse" race.  I was able to get all the kids in one shot.
