More Twilight Walk Photos!

This quartet of amazing souls looked totally OZ-some! Our favorite Susan--er, Dorothy and her friends (Cori the Flying Monkey, Peanut a.k.a. Twister and Rita the Winkie Guard) made our Kansas location come alive for the kids and their parents. Now, before the sun went down, the outdoor temp was quite toasty, and see that layered & layered costume of the Winkie Guard? Felt! And lots of it! Plus, Rita was wearing gloves! and that faux fur hat & boots!

Let the games begin!

Herding ducks at the duck pond.

Expert massage therapy from Heritage College. What a fantastic way to relax.

Steady and concentrating ...

Just like her mama.

We couldn't be happier with the entire event! Again, thank you, thank you, thank you. From the bottom of our hearts and from the top of our spirits right now, we are humbled & grateful that you believed in this cause enough to spend your time with us. Our sponsors were tremendous--you made it possible for us to present an evening like this. Our volunteers were the best--you are shining examples of hospitality & helpfulness. Our walkers, well, you are The Kyrie Foundation, you are the cure.

I often contemplate the leap from intention to action. What prompts? What motivates? What prioritizes? I still haven't figured it out, but I know that you all embodied that leap on Saturday evening for us. More thanks than you'll ever know.
