We "raced" for Rett Syndrome research this weekend. Lauren put together a 5k run/walk fundraiser for research for these special girls with Rett's, and it was a great success. Lauren even let us invite ourselves to stay for the night on Friday night, which my kids were delighted about because they love the Cramer home, even though there was so much work to do on Saturday.
I was able to help out in the morning and Lauren had organized everything so well that the event went off without any complications. The crowd was filled with very positive people. I'm sure that the race will continue to grow and be a great fundraiser in the years to come. Great work Lauren and Adam!
The Blaser family took last place. The first time in my life I think. (Should I worry that no one seemed bothered by this but me?) The girls lost steam right away (they were up much too late the night before) and the boys thought the halfway point was much too far away. It took us an hour to walk the 3.1 miles. One hour and two minutes actually. Slow as snails. But we can only improve, right? And I'm so glad we were able to participate. It was a great event on a gorgeous day.
