'Bryce's Team: Wipeout Diabetes' had 70 walkers join us on Sunday, Oct. 3rd to support us as we walked to cure diabetes. Final numbers not in but think we raised about $6500. The day started with a pancake breakfast provided by IHOP (talk about filling you up with some fast carbs!) There were lots of fun activity booths and entertainment (not that I saw any of it as I was checking in all our walkers at our tent) After the walk, there was a bbq lunch (hot dogs, chips, and cookies...bring on more empty carbs!!!) then everyone got bracelets to ride all the rides at Oaks Park. We didn't get to stay long because our oldest son had to get to flag football so not many rides for us. Despite the drizzly weather, the event was a huge success with a big turn out (think it was twice as many walkers as last year!) Our team had such a great time. Seeing all the support for all of us dealing with Type 1 is such a heart filling experience.
While this was Bryce's Team, we had 3 other kiddos with type 1 on our team, Gabriella, Kate, & Jules. We also honored a few of our friends and other kiddos with type 1 because we want to find a cure for ALL living with type 1.

All that running, playing, and walking makes a Type 1 LOW!

Low blood sugar means Daddy carried him the rest of the walk (good thing we were near the end!)
