Day 1 medical lunch stop crew. What wasn't divulged to me when I signed up was that we were to set up all of our own western exposure tents, pop tents and supplies. Yikes! In this picture, our mobile medical camp was only 30% complete. Notice we were still smiling.
What an amazing weekend I had. I'm quite simply exhausted and have muscle soreness where I didn't think muscles existed. But really, I'm not whining. I'm not! Detroit 3 Day walkers and crew raised an astounding 7.5 million dollars. I think that is incredible since the economic downturn in this area of the country has been one of the longest and most severe and still, we raised that much money for this very special cause. Eighty five percent of what we raise will go directly to Susan G. Komen For the Cure. The remainder goes to their partner, The National Philanthropic Trust which organizes and pulls off amazing events like this one. I am so proud to be a participant in such an important venture, so much so, I signed up for next year.
I'm totally exhausted, but in a good way. Everything aches a bit and I think my nose is still frozen from sleeping in an itty-bitty tent on a very cold night. I'm not whining though. Well, maybe a little. If I can figure out iMovie08, I'll post a slide show. Since that promises to be a bit of a challenge, some snapshots of my weekend will have to do. Right now, I have a date with a tempurpedic mattress.
