Here are the amazing 5 mile walkers/runners. Justin ran half of the route with some good friends of ours who were also there, and Kathy, Shari, and Mark did an amazing job walking 5 long miles!! My parents, Gene, and I were the support part of the team...the cheerleaders! We are all looking forward to walking next year, though, pushing a double stroller with Jonathan's little brothers or sisters!!Here is our team shirt...with Jonathan's footprints and birthday on the front... and March for Babies on the back. Gene, Kathy, Shari, and Mark are actually continuing on Team Jonathan in the Tulsa March for Babies next week! I love it!! Thanks, guys!!
Here are my parents--we found a good spot under a tent while they were walking.Here is Katie--her husband Harry is Justin's triathlon buddy, and somehow, in all those people, the three of them found each other and ran the last half together! Amazing!
I have never been involved in such an amazing gather of people--all for one cause. There were so many people their...families, couples, workers from many sponsoring companies...I have no idea how much money was raised in total for this amazing cause, but I'm sure it had to be a lot! How wonderful!! Thank you again to those of you who donated! We raised $500, and Justin's company matches...so we contributed a total of $1000.00 to the March of Dimes!! Thank you everyone!
We also celebrated Kathy's birthday this weekend! Her birthday is actually Monday, but we were able to celebrate with her a day early since she was here! We had fun going out to eat at our favorite hibachi restaurant, Shogun.
Happy Birthday, Kathy! I'm so thankful that you are in my life! You're an amazing woman, and I thank you (and Gene) for doing such a great job raising my wonderful husband to be the man he is, for me! Hope this year is a wonderful one for you!
