Yesterday I walked in the CCFA fundraising walk. This is the first time I have walked and raised money for the foundation. It was a really great experience and I was so happy to see how much support was around. Anyone else participate in a walk like this ? If you know of a walk in your area I encourage you to be part of it as it was a great sense of support and information.
