Energy For Life Walk 9-10-11

This was such a great event to be a part of and I am so glad we found out about it in time!
It was at Murray Park in Murray on Sept 10, 2011!  It was so good to be there and meet some new
people and read the stories of the other children in our community! They had several stories of children along the course who are dealing with a Mitochondrial Disease and then children who lives were taken by it.  It was so heartbreaking to see these sweet children.  It made me realize that there are others who  are facing the same challenges as my sweet Ramsi, and some who are facing much harder things too.

The money that was raised (about 18,000) went straight to UMDF (United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation)
and that will go towards finding a cure!  I can't wait to help out with it next year to help raise more awareness!

Here are a few pictures from the "Rockin" with Ramsi" team! Thanks to everyone who donated on behalf of our team and for those who showed up and walked with us!!!!
