Great Strides Walk!
Our amazing team looking good! A few of our members aren't pictured...Aunt Amy, Uncle Jason, Maisie and the Pitoniak family.
As most of you know on Saturday May 16th we participated in the Great Strides walk benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Bryan and I signed up to be team leaders - Team Bryce Bryce Baby and I must say...we rocked!!! As a first year team, not only did we have a great team member turn out we also surpassed our fund raising goal by a little over $2000! Our team raised just over $5000.00, which is pretty darn good if you ask me. A big thank you to all of our family and friends that donated to our team and a big thank you to all of you who joined our team and walked with us. Bryan and I are blessed with wonderful family and friends. Everyone has been so supportive on this journey we are taking with Bryce. I'm sure I've said it before, but the CFF is vital in funding research for Cystic Fibrosis so anything Bryan and I can do for them we will. Any advances they can make in finding a cure for CF will only help our Bryce!
The walk itself was 2.6 miles around the GA Tech campus. Most of our team sported bright red T-shirts with TEAM BRYCE BRYCE BABY printed on the back. We were lucky enough to have the rain hold off until the event was over. Afterward yummy food was served and there were some fun activities for the kids to participate in. Overall it was a fabulous day and we are looking forward to Team Bryce Bryce Baby representing again next year!!
