September 24th, 2012. Day +563.   2 comments

We had a wonderful time yesterday at the Madison Walk & Run for Wishes.  Hundreds of people showed up on what started out as a chilly morning.  I think there were at least a dozen previous wish kids in attendance and there were over 45 different teams of walkers and runners!

Charlotte with John and Linda, her Wish Granters from Make A Wish!!

The sun was out early and started warming everyone up as we started walking.  Before I was able to talk to all of our team members, the walk was over!

Charlotte’s Angels ended up with 37 walkers and runners, and the team picture was able to capture most of them.  There were a couple of late arrivals, but they are forgiven as a few of them were terrific nurses from our days on P4!!!

All told, we raised over $4200!!!

We were privileged enough to receive a plaque for raising the most money and another for having the biggest “Wish Team”.  But the best gift we received yesterday was the letter letting us know that Charlotte’s Angels will be sponsoring 6 year old Alyssa’s Wish Trip to Disney World!!!  How wonderful is that?  We are so happy and thankful for all of you who donated to Charlotte’s team and walked with us.  It is a wish come true for Amy and me to be able to say we did something special for a deserving child!
