Walk MS 2010

The Bagley Bunch walked in our 3rd MS walk this past Saturday. It was a very pleasant day for the walk...not too hot and the rain held off for us.

The MS Society is still processing our final donations, but we are very close to our team goal of $2500! I personally raised ~$800 (I got the most awesome t-shirt as a member of the Gold Club, those who raised more than $500, that says 'I'm Kind of a Big Deal'!). Many thanks to all of you who donated to our team this year, and kept our family in your thoughts and prayers.

*We can continue to take donations through June 1st so it's not too late if you still want to donate!*

Every year, we pick a theme that involves the word "bunch". This year our team slogan was "A-corny Bunch of Bagleys Walking for MS". We decorated our team tent with acorns with pictures of years past.

The opening ceremony was very moving as thousands gathered at the start line and released balloons in honor of all people living with MS. Carter was in awe of the balloons. It is a really awesome feeling to see all of those people gathered for the same reason, to fight this terrible disease that affects my family.

After our 3 mile walk, Landon enjoyed playing in the Kid Zone on the inflatables.

Here's the reason we walk...

And for the 3rd year in a row, we won Best Team T-shirt!!! (it's kind of our claim to fame)

Me & my boys

Sweet Olive slept through most of her 1st walk! Isn't she stylin'?

Carter was pooped by the end of the day, as were the rest of the Bagley Bunch! (he and Olive had matching tye-died onesies that Beth and I made that said Bagley Bunch Baby)

We will continue to do everything we can to fight MS...volunteering at the Society, raising awareness, educating, raising money, participating in events, etc. It won't get the best of my mother-in-law and our family.
