Walk Three

Sunday was a lovely day for a Walk, and our family participated in our third JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes.  Although Team ThunderBear shrunk a bit this year (David and Thomas were helping friends move, so William, Michael and I represented our Team), we were still able to raise almost $2,000 in contributions for JDRF's very important work.

We tried out a different Walk location this year, Tribble Mill Park, which is closer to home, and we preferred it over the previous years' location.  The event was set up next to a lovely lake, and the Walk was around the lake on a paved path through a wooded area.  Beautiful and shady and less crowded, but still with the same entertainments for the kids.

Michael not to be outdone by big brother.

A brotherly moment about half way through the Walk.
William did great this year - his BG stayed just about within normal range, so he did not get as fatigued as prior Walks.  He even gave encouragement to Michael when his feet started hurting.

So, once again, we want to give a great, big "Thank You" to everyone who sponsored William this year.
