colin's crew: new tshirts & walk info

As you may know, the Easter Seals Walk with Me has been an event that has been important to our family for the past few years. A couple of years ago, Colin was an honorary ambassador and we had a huge team of support for the cause. Since then it has become an event for us to joyfully reflect on Colin's progress. This year, we're excited to see how far around the lake he will walk on his own! If he's in the right mood, we know he's capable of walking the whole way around!

We'd love for you to join us with your families for lots of fun that morning: face painting, bounce houses and other games, petting zoo, live music, optional 5K, Charlotte team mascotts are usually there, free lunch!

This year the walk is Saturday, October 20, at Freedom Park. Registration begins at 9am and the Walk begins at 10am. Family fun begins after you walk at least one lap around the lake!

To my Hope friends: I know this is the same weekend as the Women's Retreat, but please encourage your husbands to come with the kids! Our family will be there and we'd love to see as many friends as we can!

Please consider coming out to join us Oct. 20 and making a donation to this great organization.

WHERE THE MONEY GOES: Easter Seals UCP's programs in the Charlotte area which include preschool developmental education and therapy (which Colin benefitted from greatly!), residential services, supported employment and training, respite and foster care services, and family support.
TSHIRTS: The year Colin was an ambassador we ordered adorable Colin's Crew Tshirts that Sarah Pay designed.  I learned through that experience that cheaper isn't always the way to go. I loved the design, but they just weren't comfortable so I didn't wear mine as often as I would have liked to after the Walk. SO, this year I'm trying something different...

Premium, soft American Apparel tshirts in slate gray with an updated logo available in sizes Youth S through XXXL. You can place your order here:
All orders need to be placed by TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2 to allow time for printing and shipping.
Cost will be determined by the quantity of tshirts ordered, but $14 is the most you would pay per shirt (unless you are ordering a XXL or XXXL. In that case, there is an additional charge of $2 and $3 respectively).

If you're not able to come to the Walk, but would still like to order Tshirts, please do! Also, if you know someone who would like to order a shirt, please forward on. I LOVE seeing the shirts on friends at random times :)
