Great Strides Walk, Hamilton, Ohio

This past Saturday was our family's long-awaited Great Strides Walk at Joyce Park in Hamilton on behalf of our granddaughter Calleigh McCane and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

More than twenty of Calleigh's team members (some had to leave before the photo) participated in the walk on a beautiful Saturday morning, raising (so far) more than $5,128 toward research to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. And that was just our team. Altogether, 72 people walked that morning and raised more than $9,000 total on the day...with hopes that late-arriving donations might still push the Hamilton total over $10,000.

Aubrey and Kevin McCane did a great job spearheading the effort, and we're all soooo grateful to everyone who donated and participated! It was great fun, and we're already looking forward to next year.

Calleigh (on the left in the photo above with her friend Ezzie Keeton) extends her thanks as well. Or she will, as soon as she's finished with her drink.
