The Walk

 This past Saturday we donned our Team Elise shirts and walked the annual JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes.

In all, almost 140 people came out and walked for Elise, and we raised over $11,000.  I am so proud of all the hard work my husband puts into this each and every year. We received a tonne of compliments on the shirts and the team... all of it my husband's doing.

One of the best parts?  Laura and I got to walk together... we haven't seen each other in awhile, and it was so to catch up.  The only thing missing was the third amigo, Jess.  

Aren't those pink shirts the bomb?  I don't think I have EVER willingly worn pink, but it's Elise's favourite, and she picked the colour. I certainly don't mind clashing for a day to support my sweet girl.  Plus it was so awesome to watch a sea of pink walking the streets of downtown Dallas.

Thank you to all the wonderful people who gave up their Saturday morning to come support our family, and to those who donated.  You have no idea what it means to us.  Thanks for making Team Elise great... and we'll see you next year!

Just a reminder... if you want to order a World Diabetes Day shirt, please do so as soon as possible!  If you left a comment on my first post, I still need you to email me your order.  Click here for a step-by-step ordering process.  And please get the word out to any D-peeps that you think would want one.
