Nearly here!

The Twilight Walk is this Saturday! The Twilight Walk is this Saturday! The Twilight Walk is this Saturday!

I'm so excited for this week because it's the culmination of months and months of work on behalf of lots and lots of people. And that work is squeezed in amongst birthday dinners, swim meets, football practice, grocery shopping, moving homes, planning the other yearly fundraisers, jobs and the extra work that comes with the jobs, family tragedies, family visits, health issues, school projects, homework, social obligations and our general life and times. It's really squeezed in there. And like I've said before, we possess no special powers to make an event happen. We start from scratch and look around to see what needs to be done.

It's all done in hope that you'll just come be with us. I watched Stand Up to Cancer last Friday, and it was a very well produced, lucrative awareness event. It's so good to focus on this fight for a little while. The coolest thing, I think, about the Twilight Walk is that we're not just standing up to cancer but we're literally taking steps to beat it. We're moving forward.

One housekeeping note: if you're on a fundraising team or a team captain and you've received donations offline (check or cash in-hand), e-mail me your donors and amounts so I can log them into your tally. Go teams!!!

Stay tuned! We have lots of sponsors to thank tomorrow.
