Today was a good day for a walk! We started at 6:00 AM setting the stage for the bands. The recently-named band “Steve” opened, followed by Brooklyn Sphynx for the wrapup.
Our team, Jenny’s Jewels, had at least 60 members this year. With great support from family, friends, band and school faculty, it was one of the largest teams in attendance at this year’s Erie walk. And we had the brightest T-shirts in the lot!
Many thanks to all who participated and supported the walk. Special thanks to Linda and John Huegel who once again provided a great after-walk picnic.
Given all that has happened lately, we are certainly anxious to see a Cure!
If you would still like to sponsor Jenny’s Jewels, you can go to http://www.jdrf.org and search for Jenny’s Jewels under the Northwest PA walk. We always welcome donations!
On Sunday September 21, 2008 we participated in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. This is maybe our 8th year, and this time Jenny organized kids from the Harbor Creek Band and from the HCHS Junior Class and the entire school. Given no homecoming nor competitions the day prior, we had a great turnout. Here are at least 60 walkers for Jenny’s Jewels team.
A good time was had by all. Two HCHS bands played and we supported the cause very well. Many thanks to all who participated and supported the walkers. I’ll update the Blog once I know the total donations from our team.
