Walk to Cure 2015

2015 Walk to Cure
October 10, 2015
8:30am Registration/10am Walk (we think!  I don't have an official time yet!)
University of Arkansas Gardens (south of Bud Walton Arena)
Fayetteville, Arkansas

***We'd love to have you walk with us!
If you can walk, you may register online by clicking here, to join our team, Team CMC!
 (formerly Mary Claire's Friends Who Care)

***If you can't walk, we'd love to have team support for research for a CURE!  If you can support our team, click here.  Your donation is 100% tax-deductible.  You'll receive an online receipt, and I'll mail you a paper receipt! :o)

***You will also receive a free team shirt if you walk with us!  Mary Claire is leading our design this year..she's thinking hipster with script and faded typewriting.
We usually have Youth XS(2-4), S(6-8), M(10-12), L(14-16) and Adult S, M, L, and XL.  If you aren't walking with us, you can purchase a team shirt for $10, just let me know (busymom3370@yahoo.com).

*We'll have a large group picture that morning, we don't have a schedule yet.  We try to aim for 9:30am.  If you are walking with our team, I want you THERE, pretty please!!  I need it for the kids' memory books.  I want them to remember how hard we fought for them and who was with us all along the way.  : )

*There will be tons of fun: bounce houses, harnessed jumping, tattoos, rockin' music (and a warm-up for the walk!)...and snacks (crackers, cookies, drinks, sugar free ice cream), and a hot dog lunch right after!  Maybe we can do matching nails again ; )  Matching hair bows again..if the girls aren't too big?!  Who is EVER too old for a bow?!  There is a wonderful woman who made ours the last two years..I'll get an order in asap!  Let me know if you need one!

*We'll have a blue tent set up to meet, and you are welcome to call my cell phone if you get lost!  (479) 200-6787

I know we ordered lots more shirts than last year..I think we didn't get everyone together at the same time, ha!  I love these people who crawled out of their super warm comfy beds to be with us! : )


And then came Carter, our sweetie who didn't like shoes.  Even the cute ones that matched.

God bless these people-this is the year that over half our walk was in RAiN!  And we still kept going.  And I was pregnant, but scared to tell anyone.

sweet girls!!

Yay..we grew! : ) and were on time for our picture! : )

Apparently we had no big team picture!  ..Or I didn't get a copy of it with my own camera, ha!  We used to have to order and pay for our team picture.

super sweaty afterward!

We used to have a small team!  Thankful for Mrs. June (she joined us for her last year on earth) and for these friends that have kept coming, year after year!
And then we go back to before I had iPhoto and great photo storage.  But that's ok..I probably had even worse hair, ha!  But aren't those kids the CUTEST?!  My goodness, if I could talk to myself back then.  What would I say?  That diabetes would come knocking again?  That I'd have another sweet baby?  Or just to enjoy each day with them.  And to take each one as it comes.

We really would love for you to join us on this adventure.  The Walk, the CURE..and one day I want to say that I fought for it, that I helped get it here sooner, that my kids benefited from the work I did on their behalf here on Earth.  Want to join us?  Click above, and hang out for one morning this year with our family and a lot of other families with the same goal.  A Cure for our kiddos.
