10 Years and STILL Walking!
I cannot believe it has already been 10 years since I first posted by blog: Fat Man Walking and Zoe and I participated in the 1st Annual Hope & Heroes Walk. Well, a lot has happened in the last ten years. I had gained a lot of weight, and then I decided that enough is enough, and I lost a LOT of weight. I now run 5K's every month, and I try to keep a much healthier life style. As for Zoe, she has grown up so fast, I cannot believe the beautiful young lady she has become.
So here we are 10 years later, and we are participating in the 10th Annual Hope & Heroes Walk, taking place on Sunday, May 19th. I still love being part of this walk and I love doing everything I can to help and support Hope and Heroes in their fundraising goals. This is an amazing group, and they are right here, nearby. They are helping us both locally and nationally with their research and care. So here I am again asking for your support and your donations. Please donate and help me help them.
Thank you so much for your support,
