A few months back I saw some advertisements for the MS Walk in Seattle.  I thought to myself, I should do that.  A few weeks went by and I didn't sign up but then I saw that it was MS awareness month and was reminded.  Finally, I signed myself and my family up as a team.  I have MS and thought to myself, "if I am not going to fight for my cause, who will?"  We only had a few weeks to raise money, so I made our initial goal $250 dollars, not much, but it seemed do-able. 
Now I want to tell you what we actually raised...$2,430!!!!  WOW!  What a generous group of people I know!!!  Can you believe that?!?  There is actually still time to donate if you are interested, check out our Team Website here
What is even better is that I had about 5 friends sign up to walk with myself, my husband and my daughter.  They were willing to take time out of their weekend to walk with us for this great cause.  So kind.  When the walk finally came and I showed up to meet with my team, I was so suprised to see ~20 extra people there with Team Katie shirts on!!!  Of course I cried, I couldn't believe the love and overwhelming support.  I can't imagine being so lucky to have so many wonderful people in my life!
I've only made about 45 (2/3) of the thank you cards I intend to make so I have a ways to go, but I want all of those people who donated and/or participated to know how thankfull I am.  Here is a look at the cards and a picture of team Katie.

Thank you all so much!!!!
