This past Saturday our family and our close friends formed a walk team to raise money for diabetes research. The turn-out of walkers surprised us since the forecast had called for a cold, rainy morning. Walking through mud and puddles does not sound like a very inviting prospect. Yet the crowd that showed up was impressive.
Among the gathering was a sea of people wearing red t-shirts. There were over 120 of them, and all were part of Cassie's team. Miller's classmates from high school were there. Cassie's field hockey teammates were there. Our neighbors and co-workers came too. Even Kelly's mom, traveled all the way up from Florida to take part.
The weather was soggy and cold indeed. But the spirit of support was enough to warm everyone's hearts.
Thanks for helping us raise over $50,000 for research this year. That should be enough to buy at least one high speed centrifuge for the dedicated scientists who are working hard to help find a cure for this disease.
