Nicole's Walk ...The First Annual Walk/Run was by all accounts a success.
As I came around the corner at Mother's Beach in Kennebunk, my heart skipped a few beats. There were so many people, purple balloons, a tent, event staff (well organized!) prizes, information, smiling faces, kids, mothers, fathers, volunteers and most important of all runners and walkers all 300 of them! This was the first run and to have such a well-organized, well-attended event -- you just have to give credit to Amanda Vanesse and all the people that helped her. Get in training for next year....walk, run -- we will see you there.
Let us join together and give voice to the silence. Together, we can really make a difference.
On Sunday, July 13th at 8 a.m. at Mother's Beach in Kennebunk, Maine -
This will be the place to be! Walk or run in this 5K against domestic violence. All proceeds from this event will be donated to Caring Unlimited. www.caring-unlimited.org
If you can't run for yourself- run for Nicole.
Come alone bring a friend, bring a team....it
doesn't matter. What does matter is that you are there....
