St Jude Give Thanks Walk

St Jude Walk: Team Avery

Only one more day left to sign up or donate to the St Jude Give Thanks Walk.  We are very excited to report that Team Avery has contributed over $3000 to the kids of St Jude.  Kansas City is doing a fabulous job in raising funds and is close to hitting their goal of $50,000.

Saturday will be chilly - there's no doubt about that. If you are able to come, please dress warm!  We plan to arrive between 8:30 and 8:45 am and the walk starts at 9:30 am.  We will be wearing black and as much skull and crossbones gear that we can find, and we'll have a Team Avery sign with us.  If you can't find us, give my phone a call or text and I will tell you where we are.  Since this is our first year, I can't give a location yet on where we will meet.

We sure appreciate the support and are very excited for Avery to see all those people again walking for her and her friends at St Jude.  She's over a year older than the last time we walked for her -- I am hoping she will understand things a little more and feel all that love and support that Jeremy and I feel at an event like this.  We can't do what we do without the prayers, love and support of all of you....and of course without the amazing direction and care from St Jude.  1.6 million dollars is what it takes to run St Jude for a day...While we didn't quite hit that, I am pretty darn proud of what we did!
