2007 IDSF Buddy Walk and IRL !- Get It Down 31 for 21: Post 13

Get It Down; 31 for 21

thank you all that traveled so far to see Indiana, the 2007 IDSF Buddy Walk, and each other. Over 2000 attended the Buddy Walk and raised at least 100K.

It truly was amazing seeing all the families that met via the internet, and gather for the Buddy Walk and tri21 IRL.

A few pics.

and how fantastic is this..Nash's Principal of his elementary came and walked!

Thank you again Jan, for giving me the nudge to come! Between you and Robert, I just had to be there! I still have to download all the pictures from both cameras and upload them to my flickr and update my blog, but I have enjoyed spending my morning looking through everyone's posts & pics. We had such a wonderful time, and I cannot wait to see you again!

Sorry we couldn't stay longer but we were lucky to get away with all four children as it was---that Simon is a sneaky one!
