Making Strides

Yesterday was the American Cancer Society
Breast Cancer "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" Walk 
in our city!

Every year the Pius cheerleaders attend the event
and cheer on the walkers as they start and as they finish!
So proud of these girls to give up part of their weekend
to think about and support others.

Yesterday was a beautiful day for the event and
over 2,500 people attended and walked!
I was one of the walkers!
I figured I would do a quick speed-walk 
through the 5k route.
However, an older gentleman befriended me
and so I walked with him -- we did the 5k route.
 I learned all about his family, kids and grandkids!
What a beautiful day and event!

What a wonderful way for the young ladies to spend a Sunday!
And what a great turnout!
I hope you are having a lovely October. : )

What a great event to support! Maddy looks awfully cute by that car! :) I bet the older gentleman is thinking fondly about his walk with such a nice young lady! :)
