On Saturday morning, our family was up and out before the sun rose. We picked up some of the food stuffs that were generously donated by area merchants and then headed over to Payne Recreation Center in Moraine, near Dayton.
Yes, it was time once again for the annual Autism Awareness 5K Walk/Run Event!
There was a great turn out for this event in spite of the rain!
I had such fun acting as one of the photographers and I wanted to share just a few of my images with all of you...
3 of my nephew's beautiful teachers!
I know this lovely walker!
My personal choices for best walkers? These two!
Grace raised a nice amount of money for this very important cause thanks to several dear neighbors and friends. Our love & thanks to each one of them.
Over $40, 000 was raised and those monies will stay right here in the Dayton area to help area families touched by Autism.
These wonderful children just want to be treated with love and respect...to become aware is to be empowered. We, the families who have been affected by autism, have hope..the hope that through the increased awareness of autism, and through early intervention and appropriate treatments, people with autism will lead fuller, more complete lives.
Wishing each one of you a sweet last week of April!
Love to you all.
