On Sunday morning, I got up bright and early, put on my layers, laced up my shoes, and headed over for the ALS Walk in Kimberly. It was an absolutely beautiful fall day; sunny and crisp, and the course was gorgeous--every street was lined with beautiful fall trees.
Before the walk, we all gathered inside for pictures and team bonding. I walked in support of my friend, Robin, and her mom, Dar (pictured above). Dar had quite a team gathered to support her!
One entire wall of the building was covered with cardboard walls so we could write messages of support:
Each team had T-shirts supporting the patient they were walking for. I loved the back of this T-shirt:
Part of the course went through Sunset Park, which was completely lovely.
I was overwhelmed by the kindness I saw on this walk. I loved that so many family and friends were there walking in support of their loved one. It was truly a family event, from start to finish.
I know that right now there is no cure for ALS, but there was a whole lot of love and HOPE on that walk. Here's hoping that a cure is right around the corner.
