Last Saturday morning we were up bright and early and at our church bazaar at 8am. We were there just long enough to buy a bunch of baked goods and then we headed out to the JDRF (juvenile diabetes research foundation) Walk to Cure Diabetes.
You probably already know, but we walked in honor of my niece, Hayley. She is 7 years old and was diagnosed last year with Type 1 diabetes. We raised $200 because we love Hayley so much and we hope that one day they will have a cure for her disease.
The walk was held on the campus of Wake Forest. It was a beautiful morning; a perfect morning for a walk!
Here are some pictures from our morning.
The NC members of the ‘Beaver Bunch’ team!My sister made t-shirts for everyone that walked with them in MO and made t-shirts for our family as well. The front said, “Here’s a story…” and the back said, “Of a girl named Hayley, who is rockin’ out a cure for diabetes.” The kids loved wearing their shirts with their cousin Hayley on them!! “Where’s Hayley?” Will must have gotten bored riding in the stroller because he told us he had to go potty. We had to make a little pit stop for the boy. Except he didn’t really have to go, he just wanted out of the stroller. He has only gone potty outside one time in his life. Daddy and the kids at his alma mater. Meeting the Chick fil A cow!
We had a great morning at the Walk to Cure Diabetes. We plan to walk every year for Miss Hayley - until they find a cure.
