JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes

Posted by Heather at Saturday, April 28, 2012

Honest- the weather man said that it was supposed to be 82 degrees, today. 
He lied- it ACTUALLY was a chilly, windy 60-something degrees!

"Play ball!"

Today, we joined the MOMs Club of Concord team as we showed our support for finding a cure for juvenile diabetes by walking a 5K for the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. The temperature was quite brisk when we first met up but after walking three miles, we quickly warmed up. We had fun walking with friends, supporting a good cause and fitting in a little exercise, as well.

In our ongoing mission as parents, we want Katy to learn several things from our participation in such charitable events. First of all, we want Katy to grow up knowing that the world is a bigger place than just her little world. We want her to grow up with a open mind to those around us that are different, that suffer from ailments other than our own. We would like Katy to show compassion and charity to those in need. We also want Katy to realize that we not only talk to the talk, but we also walk the walk- in this case, literally!
