A successful walk

Our Hemophilia Walk was a big success! We made over $51,000, and we had a great time doing it! This was the first Hemophilia Walk ever to be held in North Carolina.

Here is our group....family and friends.

Amy, our team captain,

and Dasher, our team mascot.

There was a large turnout.

We even walked despite our handicaps!

Lake Crabtree County Park is a beautiful place. It's located near the Raleigh/Durham Airport. It offers boating, fishing, hiking, picnicking, mountain biking, volleyball, horseshoes, and other outdoor activities.

After the walk there was a large hot and cold buffet waiting for us. We came back to our pavilion and had a toast to our Dad! (non alcoholic champagne, of course!)

What a fun day!

My two lovely daughters,

and granddaughter.

Donna, this brought tears to my eyes. You all did a remarkable job. Your father surely had a big grin on his face as he looked down on his loved ones.

What a worthwhile event! Congrats to all for making so much money for hemophilia research. Your father would be quite proud, I'm sure. What a wonderful way to honor his memory.

What a lovely thing to do as a family in memory of your father.
A lot of money raised too, in the cause.
Your father would be so proud of all of you.
