A heartfelt thank-you to all of the walkers (400 plus) who put on their walkin' shoes and headed over to Downey Park to support research and awareness for multiple sclerosis. What an amazing day it was! Mr. Pickles and the Red Robin bird showed up to the delight of many children and adults. We saw students from La Loma Junior High School and Modesto Christian, Downey, Johansen and Beyer high schools, Stanislaus State University and more volunteering in a variety of different areas. Our rest stops included fruit, trail mix, water and a group of Girl Scouts cheering on walkers. Thanks to Modesto Police officer Dave Perine and his dog, Leeda; the Jazzy Jumpers and KAT Country FM. Those of us living with MS have an immeasurable amount of gratitude for the support and awareness that comes from people joining the movement to find a cure.
