Step Out - an awesome experience!

Monday, September 28, 2009

Yesterday I participated in Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes. The weather was perfect for the walk! Walkers could walk 1, 2, or 3.5 miles - I did all 3.5! Anyone who has diabetes was given a Red Strider hat.

(My Red Strider hat)

When it was time to start the walk, they asked those of us with red hats to come to the front and start the walk. I looked behind me, realized that all of the people behind me were there for us! Oh my! I started getting misty, but held in the tears. (I'm tearing up right now!) Those 30 seconds were very humbling. I'm the one that is always helping others and these people were there for me! You bet I'll be doing the walk again next year!!! And I'm hoping to bring others with me!

It's not too late to make a donation to help find a cure for diabetes!
