Thanks to you we raised $7,690 for the ALS Society of Canada at the Ottawa Walk for ALS, on Saturday June 10th.
I was honoured to be asked to be the lead walker and am so grateful for the sunshine after an extremely rainy spring.
I was so fortunate to be surrounded by family as I rolled (thinking of you Eddy K.), with Travis, my mom, dad, my brother Keith who came all the way from Calgary, my cousin Chelsea, and my always supportive friends. It was such a "Beautiful Day", also my brother Don's ringtone! He was absolutely with us in spirit as both Keith & Dad wore St. Maarten t-shirts and I wore the necklace Don gave me the last time I saw him. Completely unplanned, and quite touching to feel him with us.
I have posted pictures on the Gallery page and my written speech on the Media page of this blog. If you are interested, my amazing cousin Chelsea recorded my speech as lead walker and you can watch it below.
It means so much to me to be able to be an advocate on behalf of the ALS Society of Canada. I am in shock by how many of you donated so generously from all corners of the world, I feel so loved!
