Our walkers this year:
Me & Scot, Raine & Saxon
Amanda & Luke Buchanan & Cindy, Bryson, & Chelsey
Sam Wasmund & Jeremiah
Steph Terry & Zack
Tim & Steph Putzier & Gavin
19 walkers - woohoo!!!
Our goal for next year is to get our team up to 25 walkers!!! If you want to come join us, you're more than welcome!!! Even if you don't raise any money, we still appreciate everyone who comes!
As of Walk Day, our team as a whole had raised and turned in almost $1,100!!! I know we still have some money that is being collected, and some that has been collected and not turned in yet.
The day of the walk was a little chilly but not too bad. I was kind of disappointed with the shorter route - we didn't get to walk as far along the river, which has always been one of our favorite parts of the walk.
To change things up a little bit this year, Scot dyed his goatee purple to increase awareness. I tried to dye Raine's but it didn't take very well. We ended up putting purple spray in her hair. I dyed mine too, but mine came out looking almost black with a purple tint. Steph Terry dyed hers too! Hers turned out better than mine - you could tell hers was purple. Next year I think I may bleach my hair first so that it comes out really purple. It'll grow out eventually, so no big deal!
So now I'll leave you with some more pictures from this year's walk.
