JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes

Today, we participated in the JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes.  It turned out to be a decent day, not too cold, not too hot.  This event really does make me proud to have the friends and family that I do.  We had 35 walkers on our team including us and we managed to raise about $3500.00 as a team and about $2400.00 as a family.  The walk was a success for us being that we managed to double our donations from $1700 last year to $3500.00 this year.  And Nicholas had a wonderful time walking with the 9 kids that came with their families.  In his words, we do this walk "so we can give money to the scientists so I don't have to have diabetes anymore".  I hope he is right.  Here is a picture of our team!! Thank you to all of the people that supported us through their generous contributions, kind words and prayers and by walking with us!!
