In spite of a stormy day in the Chippewa Valley, the ALS Walk and Wheel-a-thon went off without a hitch. Over 200 walkers attended. While we were pleased with the turnout, that is down from our typical 300-350. The total amount raised this year is currently at $14,250, although that may go up as more donations come in. If you missed out on the walk this year but would still like to donate you can do so on-line here.
Many attended the Walk as a Team Member and some teams were as small as 2, others nearing the 40 mark. Check out our Facebook Page for a few photo's from the walk. Others will be added to our Web Page in a few weeks. Thanks to all of the wonderful volunteers who made the Walk possible. Those who gave auction items, those who collected them, those who organized the items and collected the money, those who donated food, those who cooked and served it and cleaned up afterwards, those who set up and cleaned up the building, those who handled registration and T-shirts, those who did face-painting and entertained the kids, those who took pictures, those who walked and those who wished they could, those who planned and those who supported the walk in any way. THANK YOU TO YOU ALL! (Do you get the idea it takes a whole lot of people to put on a Walk?)

Summer has moved in with this heat wave. Signs of new life lift our spirits and we're hoping this newsletter will do the same for you. Finding joy and hope during adversity isn't easy, but the testimony of others reveals that it is possible. Take a breath and look for the good in today.
