The walk is over and it was AMAZING. I have photos to share and stories to tell, but for now, I just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone who has helped me get here. So far, the event has raised A HALF MILLION DOLLARS! How incredible is that? I cried when they announced it at the closing ceremonies yesterday.
I cried a lot this weekend. Once out of frustration, several times out of joy and even more times out of sadness at the stories I heard about those affected by MS. I am so proud to have been a part of this, and have already signed up for next year’s walk. Let me know if you’re interested in joining the kick-ass Wally’s Walkers team!
Also, I am still in the running to be one of this year’s top 25 fundraisers. There’s still time to donate, so if any of you didn’t donate but wanted to, please go here. I heard so many amazing stories about what MS research has accomplished to date, and every dollar helps find the next treatment or even the cure to help others keep walking.
Hugs and kisses to all of my wonderful support team. Amy “Wally” Reno – you are the most amazing person. You have MS and yet you whooped my ass all weekend long. Thanks for always pushing me and telling me that excuses are like cookies – once you have one, all of a sudden, there’s a dozen in your mouth.
Yes, that’s what she said.
