We were at a 5K Race to benefit the Brain Tumor Society. The weather was perfect. The energy and mood was exhilirating and we both felt so good doing something so positive to honor our sweet Tyler.
Actually this whole week that they have been here visiting has been fantastic and I wasn’t sure I would really have (or make) much time for the computer but I just so wanted to share a few pictures from the race (and I’m sure I will share more later of Miss Roo!!)
The race was downtown on Pennsylvania Avenue and followed the same route that they use for the inaugural parade. Erica, who is a “new” runner, did the runner. I did the volunteering – and cheering!!
There were 10,000 (yea TEN THOUSAND) runners and walkers! Freedom Plaza was packed – runners/walkers of all ages…survivors…and supporters/loved ones of people affected by brain tumors.
There was a Wall of Hope filled with photos remembered by loved ones. Of course, Erica ran to honor her brother. It really was touching and heartbreaking to see all the faces…especially all the children and babies represented on the wall.
