The Heel and Wheel A Thon for Crohns and Colitis Research was alot of fun again this year! It is always a great visit with my friends Lori Ann and Murray and their awesome kids Clay, Rayner and Shylo :). We could have done without the rain downpour, but at least the walk part was over for them before that.
Now the coolest part ... last year if Clay and Rayner raised a certain amount of money, they would wear awesome pink and brown bikinis in the walk. Well, they more than surpassed their goal raising around $7,000.00!! Needless to say they wore the bikinis their Mom picked out for them!
This year, these 2 amazing boys and their parents cooked up the scheme to wear dresses if they reached a certain amount of money raised. AND their Dad would join them if they raised even more ..... well, they raised $12,481.00!!!!! Needless to say, their Dad joined them this year .... they all wore dresses for the walk! (I am posting their pictures with Mom's permission) :)
Don't they look awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so proud of them! They won first place for amount of pledges in the group catagory :) Way To Go Guys!!!
I have to share a couple pictures of their youngest, who decided that playing with my son Keegan was fun :)
Then decided posing with her lollypop was also a cool idea :)
Isn't she the cutest!!!
Then there were these people there with the coolest birds. I only took pictures of 2 of them, but I had to share those too :)
In all, there was about $60,000.00 raised for this very worthwhile cause! Was a fantastic afternoon, even with the rain!
