MY FIRST WALK FOR A CAUSE.

Monday, November 09, 2009

Yesterday I participated in a Walk for Kids. It was to benefit the Big Brother and Sisters foundation. It was really nice. I just showed up for my regular walk/run and there they were so I signed up. I was excited because I never did this before. I think I'm going to start doing alot this. It helps me and it helps someone else. Kids are very special to me and I can't wait to find something else like this. They gave out some nice goodies bags too. LOL.

    Good for you. Me and my daughter just did the Race for the Cure. Makes you feel good two ways, you finish the race and you helped. Awesome

    Sounds like a lot of fun! I am looking for some more races/walks myself. I'm so excited about my 5k coming up. I think these are good reasons to run or walk and it keeps us in shape too.

    That’s great. A group of friends and I got together 2 weekends ago and raised money for breast cancer. We got together to play kickball asking everyone to make a donation. It was a great way to raise funds. I think we should do things like that regularly. I always tell people it only takes a few minutes or a few dollars to make a difference. People seem to always have time to go see a movie and they always have money to buy a new iPod or CD. They certainly can find the time and money for a good cause.

    Glad you enjoyed it. I did too. Though I didn't actually play - I just cheered everyone on - it was great to be a part of it.
