A Great MS Walk!

Many, many thanks to everyone who supported Team Cooper in last Sunday’s MS Walk. There were 20 of us on the walk this year and we had a great morning. As usual in April, it was cool and windy on the boardwalk, but we had plenty of sunshine and super company. About 2000 people take part in the walk in Belmar, so the atmosphere is full of positive energy.

The best part is we are over 2/3 of the way to our goal. We have raised $2019.00 out of the $3000 we are shooting for. It is not too late!! I can still collect donations until June, so if you are so inclined, I would be incredibly grateful (click here to donate).

But I am still thrilled at the generosity of everyone who contributed, in person, financially or in spirit!! Thank you for bringing us that much closer to a cure for Multiple Sclerosis.

I participated in an MS Walk too in Delaware and we raised about the same amount you did!

Congrats to your team. Come check out the funny photos of my team wearing silly hats and clown noses. I even made a movie about the day. My friend, Kathy, with MS LOVED it.

Cheers and Giggle On

Pricilla: Thanks!

The MS 150 here in Houston was essentially wiped out by high winds and rains.

I'm glad you had nice weather. Congratulations.

Oh, no, that's too bad!

One year we had a torrential downpour and got soaked to our underwear. I was still able to do the walk then, instead of having to use a chair. But now I wouldn't be able to.

I figure if that happens again, common sense would prevail. We'll register, drive parallel to the boardwalk for the length of the walk and all go have breakfast at the diner. lol
