Hello? Hello??? Is anyone out there???????

Oh good. 🙂 Let’s just ignore the fact that I haven’t been around or blogging and just continue going forward, MMMkkkk???

The Walk to Cure Arthritis in Boston was Sunday, 9/14 and it was FANTASTIC! My first one in Boston since I moved 18 months ago and I had a great time. Here’s a little recap. 🙂

We raised over $200,000 and had over 900 people registered online before Sunday. We’re still waiting for the final numbers to come in, but I think we had well over 1500 people there!

We had an amazing food tent. Odd Fellows and Rebekahs provided hot dogs, chips, and water for lunch to all the walkers. I picked up an orange, a banana, and a Whole Foods 365 Granola Bar while I was there too. Oh and let’s not forget the Green Smoothies from b.Good! YUM!

Wally from the Red Sox! It was awesome to meet him, especially since I went to my first Red Sox game only a few days prior!

But one of the things we implemented this year was the Cutest Dog Contest.

We had the most dogs we’ve ever had at the Walk to Cure Arthritis – Boston and had over 100 people vote on the cutest dog!  Here’s our cute “Arthritis is RUFF” tent. 🙂IMG_0104
