We Showed Diabetes Who's the Boss!

Sunday was the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes and even in spite of my terrible skills as a group coordinator, everyone showed up at the right place and at the right time. Unfortunately, Antoinette was too late to get in the pic and Melissa was nowhere in sight when we were taking it (and the race was about to start!). :(

I was a bit chaotic. I was trying to do the meet and greet thing for two teams including my family team, the Big Asterois and my group team, the Sacramento Craft Mafia. I really love these people who came and that's why I felt so bad that I couldn't give them the attention I wanted to. Not like they really wanted it ;) but I hate feeling like I'm leaving people out. Even though I got separated from most of the Sacramento Craft Mafia team, they still had each other to walk, loot and eat with ;) Amy, Antoinette and my family team were in the fringe group of last-placers due to team member potty and coffee breaks.

Overall, the fundraising campaign of the Sacramento Craft Mafia members, the Sugarcube Society Shop and the Big Asteroids brought in over $1200 for type 1 diabetes research!!!!! That is over twice as much as my family team raised last year. This thrills me to no end. For real(s/z)!

I'm so proud of my walkers who came out in the chilly, early morning (some of them crippled from night before) and all in great spirits! I can't thank them enough for being there and raising funds and awareness for this cause.

Thank you to those who walked, created, donated, bought, supported, prayed, and encouraged. Without you, this world could never be better.

To you, my heart!
