          That's great ours is this weekend at one of the local colleges.
          I hope to be able to get there to support our team from work and maybe get some pics for the web, I have 2 things going on at the same time that night for work and I hope to be able to get to both of them with some quick driving Our company besides having a team lets us buy jeans day stickers for Thursday for 3.00 very popular at work to wear jeans Thursday and Friday and a great way to raise money for the cure.
          Thanks to all the walkers.

                I am not on the team since I didn't know what was going on health wise 6 weeks ago when they were signing people up, but many of my close co-workers are on the team and of course I will be supporting them since they all helped me while I was gone from work. Our whole company does a lot to support this and many other groups during the year. I am very lucky to work for a company that has done so much for the community and for all types of medical research.

                  Update form our work team they raised Little over 3300.00 for the cause and the total is still going up since more money was just dropped off this week. Next year I will be on two of the teams the one at work and the one at the Oncology Clinic that I go to. Just like to say GREAT JOB to my work team and to ALL of the teams accross the country.
