2007 AIDS Walk Atlanta

The 2007 AIDS Walk Atlanta was today. Unfortunately, overnight my team of six dwindled to a team of two---best friend Chris and myself. This morning I popped a few Vitamin C and a couple of Tylenol before we hit the park to get our walk on.

Exciting news: My goal was $250; I raised over $800--- go Team Truvy. During the walk I kept talking with Chris about fundraising ideas for next year...... oh, do I have some good ones. If it works out, I plan to do the poetry book raffle each year, and I'll mention the other as the time approaches.

Here's a big THANK YOU to everyone who supported me (and Team Truvy) in the 2007 AIDS Walk Atlanta. I appreciate every single one of you. The raffle for the poetry books will be happening within the next couple of days.

Children from preschool down the street from
the park played the drums for the walkers.

This fabulous entertainer cheered on the walkers
and the Atlanta Freedom Bands.

Tomorrow, I'll post pictures of the AIDS Quilt.
