The 2nd Annual Denver NF Walk

Today Sara and I participated in the NF Walk to help raise money for The Children's Tumor Foundation.  It was a ton of fun, and the turn out was great!  The weather was much better too than the 2 degrees and snow we had on walk day last year.

I want to take a moment to thank all of you who donated to the cause, or walked with us today!  Sara and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  Your support means the world to us, no matter if it is financial, emotional, or something else.  We couldn't do this without you!  Thank you!!!

Here are some of the pics that I took while we were there.  I didn't take any during the actual walk, but before and after.

We got there early, so Sara had time to swing at the playground before starting out our walk.  I think this was her favorite part of the whole day!

This is Sara and I after we walked (well, I walked and she rode). We had hot dogs and chips that were provided for walkers while sitting in the shade of this beautiful tree.

And Kim, this ones for you!  Patrick came to walk with us and show support.  It was a ton of fun, and I hope he had a good time too.  He's smiling after our long walk, so I took that as a good sign!  And no Kim, you are NOT allowed to take his shirt! 

Another successful walk, and another great fundraiser to help find a cure for NF (and probably cancer too since their so closely related).  It feels good to know that I'm helping others.  It was a good day!


  1. Haha, I love it! He had such a good time; he was telling me all about it last night. I'm really glad he was able to go, and I'm bummed I missed it. :( Next year! These are all great pics!

  2. Wonderful, Julie!! What an amazing event and organization. I hope your contributions and the contributions of the many others brings about life-changing results, and soon!!

    The pictures are great - a nice way to get to know you outside just the words. And Patrick looks pretty happy, sounds like he also had a great day!

    Keep up all the great work :)
