One Month!

Just one month from today, and we'll all be at the second-annual Twilight Walk!!!! We're so excited we can barely contain ourselves!

What a wonderful evening we had last year--the camaraderie, the fun games, the great deals at the silent auction, the music, the united front we all gave in an effort to spare another family from brain cancer. I can't tell you how incredible it is to see people come together for something like this. The walk--each lap--I could see people taking their time or getting a spring in their step as they thought about life and love, the past and the future, the here and now.

From our end, we think and we plan, we call and we beg, we put up posters, we make phone calls, ask for donations, ask for volunteers, ask for favors, ask for everything. We work so hard, and in the end, we just hope and pray that you will be there with us. We just hope and pray that we don't have to take a truckload of t-shirts back home! We'd much rather give them away to you to wear out in the world. Maybe someone will see your shirt, ask about it and then you can tell them what we're all trying to do, which is a little thing I like to call Changing the World.

We've heard from some of you that you're hearing about the Twilight Walk on KFDI! Wa-hoo! We absolutely love them, and are abundantly grateful for their help spreading the word and lifting up our purpose up above some of our day-to-day distractions. Thank you, KFDI! See you on September 19!
