A walk in the park

The Literary Lappers (members of our book club)

Saturday was the Fundraising Walk for the Cancer Services of NE Indiana that I told you about here.  Thank you so much to those of you who supported me with your contributions.  I accomplished my goal of $100 with your help.

Ever the optimist, I started out with my sun visor on.  But it was an overcast day (really, perfect for walking!) so I carried it most of the time.

When I was getting dressed that morning, at the last minute I remembered there was a place on the back of the t-shirt where I was supposed to write the name of a loved one who is fighting cancer.  So I quickly wrote our little great nephew’s name, Cooper.  Too late I remembered that they call him “Super Cooper” because he is such a brave, happy little almost three year old, even with all he has been through.  So I added the “super” part.  That is my explanation for why this is so wayyyyy off center.  I wrote the “super” second, and actually from right to left.  Oh well, I “got’er done” and it felt good to get to visibly support “Super Cooper”.

It was a great day.  They raised alot of money and there were inspiring success stories in abundance.

I can’t imagine a more rewarding way to spend a Saturday morning.

    Supa — It IS an excellent cause, and when you see all the people who have recovered from cancer it does give you renewed hope.

    Beth — Yes, it went very well. I actually worked up a sweat! I usually avoid doing that, but it was awfully humid. But it felt good anyway. 🙂
