With the help of my friends, family, and a relentless online campaign called Facebook x Friends = HOPE, I was able to surpass my fund-raising goal, coming in at just over $400!! Many thanks to everyone who supported me in this event. The weather was perfect, the crowd was enormous (around 45,000 people!), and the walk was uplifting, to say the least. I can't believe I won't be around next year to be a part of it, but I look forward to participating as an official citizen of the city my next go around. With any luck, future efforts will be raising money to support the cure, not just research in hopes of finding one. And you can bet I'll be bringing more of you with me.
