Emerson is wearing BLUE to support the Colts and Diabetes Awareness!
Thursday, November 3, 2011
On Saturday, October 29th, we participated in our first JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes at Military Park, in Indianapolis. We had 30 people – including family, friends, co-workers, classmates and school staff - come down and support Emerson in her first walk. Emerson had a great time and even walked the entire 3.1 miles.
We raised $3,500 prior to walk day, so we are hoping to come close to $4,000 once all the money collected on walk day has been counted. We initially started out with a goal of $1,000 – not knowing what to expect for our first walk. We quickly surpassed our goal thanks to the generosity of family, friends, and even strangers. A big thanks to everyone who walked with us or donated to our team.
We can’t wait to start planning fundraisers for next year so we can raise even more money to find a cure.
