Many of you know that I was a team captain for the MS Walk last year. It was such a great experience to see how many thousands of people really cared about raising money to fight MS. I looked around and saw many teams of people who were there in support of a friend or a family member with MS, and it actually brought tears to my eyes. It really makes me want to be a participant in other great cherity walks such as the one for breast cancer, just to be a part of another group who is so committed to helping others with a disease. It was truely a spiritual experience, you know the kind you have when you are surrounded by good on every side, the kind that has such an impact on your spirit that it moves you to become a better person. I love that feeling.
I wanted to post some photos from the event last year, but my computer is acting up, so I will just post this one of our team. There are a few members that didn't make it on time to be in the photo, but most of them are here. If there is anyone who is interested in joining the Hoppers for 2009, just click on this link and sign up. The event is Sat, April 11th in the A.M. I don't have the exact time yet, but last year we were done before lunchtime. If you decide to join us, I promise it will be a fun, rewarding, bonding experience that you won't soon forget!

P.S. Ellie is one of my sisters-in-law (sort of... lol) that is on our team, and she is making doggie biscuits for Valentines day (anyone love their doggie?). She is selling a bag for $3 or two bags for $5, and all the money she collects will go to the MS Society via the Hoppers on the day of the walk. If you would like a bag or two of yummy home made doggie treats for your pup, shoot me an email and I will give her your order. It's for a great cause! Thanks Ellie, you rock!
