Legs for Lorisa 2010

Once again I had a kick butt team at the MS Walk. People never cease to amaze me and support me. I so appreciate it and can't even put it into words! The MS Walk was a huge success and though we haven't gotten to our goal of $20,000, Legs for Lorisa still has time. We are still the largest team in size in the North Central States Chapter! Thank you to everyone who supported me by either walking, fundraising, or donating. I appreciate it all!

It's Finally Here!

I am a horrible blogger, I know it, but at least I am doing it now. It's finally here....THE ANNUAL MS WALK!!! We are so excited for this weekend and couldn't be more happy to see our friends and family!

After over 2 months of planning, recruiting, fundraising, door knocking, and begging...we finally get to actually walk for a cure. Wouldn't that be something if our efforts and money actually made a difference? I believe it does! Some day, this will be a memory and we will be a world free of MS!

Speaking of those fundraisers, a HUGE thank you to my sister Lynelle for having a social hour on her birthday at the Peacock Alley in Bismarck. What a great idea! To LeAnn for hosting her annual MS party and chinese silent auction. It is always a great hit! To Lisa who tried her hand for the first time at a fundraiser and served taco-in-a-bag at her employer. And (in my opinion) the best fundraiser of all...our Phone-A-Thon! Terry and I hosted a new event that was a great success!

Thanks to everyone on our team, Legs for Lorisa, who is coming to walk this weekend and has done their fundraising share. It means so much to me!

See you Friday night at A&B pizza, Saturday morning for the Walk at Wachter, then the Post-Walk party back at the school, and finally a poolside gathering Saturday evening. Cannot wait!
