We Did The St. Jude Walk Run For The First Time

Hey Cuties,

Thank you for all of your kind words, votes of encouragement, and donations. Mimi’s Cuties completed the St. Jude Run Walk at Nationals Park in Washington, DC. The weather was absolutely perfect, the Universe knew we were there to shake up the world.

The run took place at Nationals Park, known as the home of the Washington Nationals baseball team. We usually attend for baseball games, but this time was really different.

They had plenty of snacks and that was awesome because we were hungry. They had something for everyone including fresh fruit and beverages.

Before the St. Jude Walk Run got started we heard from former St. Jude patient April. I am always inspired by the first-hand accounts of the St. Jude patients. It reminds us why we are here and you get to hear how your donation has saved and changed lives.

We took a picture with President George Washington before we get moving.  He was out making his rounds, taking pictures, kissing babies, and cheering us on.

Cousin Faye showed up to round out Mimi’s Cuties.

We were off, we signed up to walk, but Babe and the kids took off running. That left Faye and I to walking and taking pictures along the way.  So we did just that, this was a great shot looking down as the others began to get started.

I told you the view was beautiful. They had St. Jude messages on the jumbotron the entire time.

We did it, we successfully completed the St. Jude Walk Run to end Childhood Cancer. I know you see our medals.

Although Mimi’s Cuties did not reach our team goal I am extremely thankful for your donation. Overall St. Jude had a goal of raising $200,000, I am happy to report $237,907 was raised so that goal was not just met, it was exceeded. You still have time to help me reach my goal.

      I love that they are always so willing and so open to doing these type of things. My kids know all about giving back and why it is so important. They will do it when they are adults and pass it on to their children.
