Dear Lauren,

This is a beautiful outreach to support Lyme education and research for a cure!!

I pray that the numbers of able bodies that walk alongside those suffering but, determined to be there are impressive in a way that not only raises the dollars; but get the attention of the general public and media masses in your region!

TY for your work as an educator and advocate for the Lyme community.

We are blessed to have u!

Thanks so much Sojourner!!!!! You are such a blessing!!!

We have a live radio station broadcasting from our event and are wanting to interview lyme patients on air which is a great opportunity to have people hear our stories. It really should be a fun day. SO wish you guys could be here :) Maybe someday!!

It was a wonderful day!!! Beautiful weather, over 240 people came out. Close to $20,000 raised I believe...donations still coming in.

So many wonderful people came and supported us (my friends family surprised me by driving in from Canada) and the radio station interviewed lymies on air. I've heard of 2 people who came just from hearing it on the radio. Also had articles in Daily Herald and Chicago Tribune about it too!!!

We'll be starting to plan next years within the next month :)
