Sun Beams: Walk the Talk

It's been over two weeks since the RAEdiant Striders braved the inevitable downpour and walked for the Epilepsy Foundation on March 31st. A lot has happened in those two and a half weeks which is why this post is late in coming.

The RAEdiant Striders!

First, I'd like to say a big THANK YOU to those that came out to support us. It meant the world to me that you came even though we all knew a torrential rain was heading directly for us. I even cried a little because even though I know we're not alone there are times when I feel like we are and seeing you all gathered there in spite of the weather overwhelmed me with feelings of the support and care you have for us.

Rae was fascinated with the purple balloon.

Secondly, a big THANK YOU to everyone that donated to our walkers. By the end of the weekend we raised $355 for the Florida Epilepsy Foundation. Their grand total for Walk the Talk was $44,986 and we couldn't have done it with out your contributions.

Thirdly, a big THANK YOU to those that wanted to be there, but were not able to due to prior commitments or illness. I appreciate that your hearts were with us.

Tuckered out after an exciting long day.
