We can hardly believe that this years walk will be our 3rd JDRF Walk for a Cure! We love that we can get together to walk and raise money to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes, but at the same it's saddening to realize that another year has passed.
We received an email a few weeks ago stating that at our first walk in 2011, Cara's Team raised $1974 and at last year's walk Cara's Team raised $2615! Each year has made us more and more humble without a doubt!
This years walk theme is "Superheroes Unite!" We are sure it is meant for all of the Type 1 Superheroes out there (and they are for sure), but we also think it includes all of those Support Superheroes: Moms, Dads, Families, Friends, Team Mates, Coaches, Teachers and the list goes on. Those who support US, we simply can't thank enough!
This year's walk is Saturday, May 11th at 10 am at the Brown County Fairgrounds... next to the DePere ice rink ;)
If you would like to join Cara's Team and walk with us...we would LOVE it!! But, If you can't because of other committments...we totally understand and hope that you would still donate to Cara's personal page! (or order a cool t-shirt). Her personal goal this year is $2000. To earn her the "Golden Sneaker Award". (If only it were a skate?! We'll work on that!) But, you do have to go to HER page~or click on "Cara's name : dontate to this walker"
We are going to be ordering T-shirts again! The cost will be $25.00! It's another SUPER cute design idea made by Cara's cousin...Erin!!
Thank you to all of our friends and family who have donated in the past years and continue to do so this year!! It means a lot to our family...and to countless other families!
And again a HUGE thanks for all of you who've been there...every 'step' of the way with us!!
