JDRF

So today was the day!  We did a Walk for cure juvenile onset diabetes.  This hits close to home for us.  My cousin Kari jo was Diagnosed at a very young age,  and as of the last few years, two of my cousin Children have be diagnosed,  Miles and Abrialle. 

Anyway a month or so ago Missy decided to sign her and Ryan up for the walk for the cure,  So we followed suit and signed up.  It was all fun and games till The time came that i actually had to get out there and walk.  Oh well we did it!  Our group was named Abby Milers after the two kiddies who are living with Diabetes. 

So i have not done a run like this but i guess it's a fun thing to wear matching things as a team.   We got there and their was a entire team in green capes and a little guy had a green Mohawk,  Anyway Missy showed up and alas pulled out these Beauty's......

That's right,  I've got my own personal Joe Dirty.  I'm not sure why but everyone else put on the wigs and they looked funny and everyone laughed,  But Brad looked so creepy!  I love my Husband but he will never have a mullet or anything like it,  It just does not suit him!

And here is our whole team!  We had a goal to raise $500 and we exceeded that by a couple hundred!
So the total raised by this particular walk was of $16000.  Pretty good!
I'm glad the kids, Brad and I got to participate,  It was a good moment to get out of ourself and our lives and do something good for a good cause!  So thanks for Inviting us along Miss!!

  3. KD for some bizarre reason that wig was made for you, seriously it looked awesome! Brad on the other did look kinda creepy and weird. I'm glad you guys had such sweet weather for your run, the boys literally spent all day outside.
