This is my 100th post! What a milestone!
Last Saturday was my local Walk MS - we had a great turnout and I was, again, reminded of just how blessed I am. My husband, my parents, my boss, 2 co-workers/friends, and a high school friend all walked with me! In addition, my high school friend, who is now a high school teacher and coach brought her varsity softball team out to walk AND they made t-shirts for our team! It was so great to have so many friends/family supporting me by walking beside me! I am constantly amazed at the incredible people in my life! I have such a great family, great co-workers, and great friends who are always so supportive; I am truly blessed! Also, my sister made a HUGE donation this year helping me reach my lofty $3000 fundraising goal! Even though she lives too far away to walk with me, she is always super supportive of my efforts! I also had a number of other great friends donate, helping me reach my goal - I am always overwhelmed at all of the support I get. Sometimes I probably don't seem a appreciative as I am. I am always trying to get people involved and raise as much as I can, and sometimes I don't always realize how burdensome that can be. But, when I really reflect, I could not ask for more supportive friends and family. Thank you to all who walked and thank you to all who donated! I was able to surpass my personal fundraising goal and I think we will surpass our team fundraising goal (the totals are not final yet, but I am very confident)! It means so much to me to raise money for research. As all of my friends, family, and readers know, the ultimate goal is to end MS - to find a cure! And we can do that, I really believe that! I just hope that the cure comes within my lifetime!
Thanks to all who have supported me in all of the ways that you have!
