The 2015 Minnesota Walk Now for Autism Speaks was on Sunday. We have participated the last two years and had raised $1800. We set our sights higher this year with a goal of $2000. We had so many generous donations including $1000 from my dad's Lions Club! We didn't even ask for it, which made it even more special. We blew our goal out of the water and raised $2354 this year! I am so grateful for Parker, Jimmy, and our family and friends who have supported us over the last several years. The venue for this years walk changed to Target Field. We were so excited to be out in the sunshine! It was a bit more disorganized, but I am sure they will work out the kinks!
We had a great turnout for our team again, 16 members total! Of course the picture where Parker is looking there are a bunch of people hidden. I tried to work some photo magic, but it would have taken a lot of work!
Parker loved being outside surrounded by lots of people that love and care for him.
We even made it on the jumbotron a few times! You can see me on the right side with my camera.
We had a pretty brief opening ceremony, then walked around the concourse.
Parker loved having his buddies join us as well. You should have seen the outtakes, as is pictures with pre-schoolers!
We will have to set our goal even high next year! Hopefully the weather is just as great!
Thank you so much to all of those that supported us this year. You are making such a great difference in so many lives!
