Totally Successful ALS WALK 2008

Get your scrolling fingers ready. The ALS WALK today was fabulous and we thank each and every one of you from the bottom of our hearts for your kindness and support. We had about 40 on our team and many others who contributed but couldn't be at the walk today. It was a bit emotional to feel such support from family and friends. We are very blessed.

Here's the group shot with some of our Parks Pals.

The love of my life.
Just a few of the kids. Gotta love 'em. They were great supporters.
The starting line. On your mark . . . get set. . . .
Cutting, cutting, mouth helping him cut. . . . .


Some people look good no matter what they're wearing.
Jack and Liesl loved helping Gramma Rogers.
Little Miss Clara was the most beautiful baby at the event. Hands down.
Some of Cris' co-workers from the district office and several schools.
Gramma Rogers had a great time.
Fun times.

We don't have the final count yet, but so far our team has raised $2,500. We were so thrilled. The ALS Association has given us so much help, support and durable medical equipment. Our life is much easier because of this great organization and we were honored to sponsor a team. Thanks to everyone.

Oh my gosh! That is amazing! Your t-shirts dominated the other/lesser teams I'm sure. And that banner? C'mon! I'm know you put the other teams to shame.

Some of those people look like they were recovering from an 80s party. Weird.

Thanks for the kudo's. Our shirts were the best by far---but our banner? It looked so big in my living room but it was dwarfed compared to others. Next year we're trickin' out our banner and steppin' it up a bit. Em suggested we need a tent, coolers, music, etc. to really stand out from the crowd.
