DeFeet Lung Cancer--the 2011 version

What began as a lark last year turned into a very fun event.  And quite humbling too, when they totaled up all you donated to the American Lung Association of Washington for our team:  DeFeet Lung Cancer, we finished in second place for the most money raised for an individual team, raising over $2,000!

I hope that those of you who participated last year walking, or jogging will do so again.  And I would love to see lots more of you out there.  It's on a Sunday this time--May 1, 2011.  So fingers crossed that the weather will be a bit better since we're starting later in the spring.  And if you can't make it to Seattle for the fun and celebration, well... you can still donate.  You can go to this page and click on the  "join a team" or "donate to a team" button and then find DeFeet.  I'd be happy to put up any guests who might come in from out of town.  The dogs would love to see you.  The dachshunds, at least, will be there for the walk this year, which will be held at Magnuson Park, rather than UW.

It should be a great time!  And don't forget, we all go to brunch afterwards!

Thank you so much for your support.  There are so many pressing needs these days and for most of us, we are trying to make do with less.  We just do what we can do and hope to make a difference.  I'll keep you updated on the team progress.
