Diabetes WALK 2011

The Heath Family Team walked in JDRF's 4th annual WALK to Cure Diabetes on September 17. Our team raised over $400 for diabetes research.

I made the raffle poster.

Katy, Natalie, Shannon, and Wendy did an awesome job putting the balloon arch together.

Shamae and Stacey

Natalie's 10 year old daughter, Oakley, with her friend. Oakley's been T1 for five years!

Shamae's cuties: Sydney, Hadlee, and Morgan
Sydney has had diabetes for three years. She and her mom recently went to Washington D.C. to participate in JDRF's Children's Congress.

Anyone want a t-shirt?

I met Brooklyn's mom, Melanie. Brooklyn is four years old and was diagnosed in February.

This team had great shirts!

Lainey getting ready to cut the ribbon.

Team Saylor
We met Saylor and her mom, Jamie, at last year's WALK. Saylor's three years old and has had diabetes for over a year.

On your mark...get set...go!
The girls and I walked the 1 mile portion, and Lainey even ran part of the way. I pretty much held Libby. The wind was not kind to us and it was a little chilly.

Dustin and Libby cheered in the walkers at the finish line.
Thank you Personal Best Performance for donating your floating arch.

Lainey enjoyed the bounce house.

We ate at the potato bar for lunch. Thank you Wada Farms!

Some T1 kids had their poster on display for all the participants to see.

Our family picture

The girls got their faces painted afterwards at The Harvest Fest.
