The Big Day for Team Ally

Today we walked in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes.  It looked like rain, but it turned out to be a beautiful day!

We would like to thank all those of you who, in any way, shape or form, supported Team Ally this year. 

Sure, our goal is to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, WE WANT A CURE!  But the day is about so much more to us too.  "Walk Day" is a day for spreading awareness about diabetes, and in our case, especially Type 1 Diabetes.  I am going to work harder at educating others about Type 1 Diabetes.  It is something that I believe HAS to happen for so many reasons, and I can't just sit back and hope someone else gets the word out there!  So stay tuned for more on that....

"Walk Day" is also a day to show Ally how much she is loved...and boy did she feel loved today!  I could tell she had a really full heart, being surrounded by so many family members and friends.  She puts up with the "unfriendlies of diabetes" every.single.day.  This was a day to turn it around and focus on HOPE.

And yes, that is Ally with Sweetpea from The Princess and The Pump!

And guess what, the fountains turned on as we were walking along the river and a beautiful rainbow appeared!  Seemed like a symbol of Hope for sure!

So, again, thank you for supporting Team Ally...whether it was through a donation to JDRF in Ally's name, taking part in the walk with Ally, sending us words of encouragement or praying for a cure!  We appreciate it ALL so very much!
