If you think getting a walk team together is an easy task think again, but every year I do it and I would not have it any other way.
The fact that I'm raising money that will affect my daughter's life is mind blowing and a little much to handle at times.
The fact that people, our family and friends will stop their lives and support us to make sure Cara's life is as wonderful and long as it should be is simply uplifting.
The fact that strangers will give us money to support our cause is well, shocking to say the very least but wonderful.
The fact that designing and creating our walk t-shirts and walk video is just plan fun! Making sure that everyone has their shirts and they are all the right size on walk day is very time consuming and nerve racking.
The fact that every time I get an email from the JDRF saying I received a new donation is completely exhilarating.
The fact that I feel like I'm "DOING" something to kick "D" in the balls is wonderful but I do put a lot of pressure on myself to do it right and hard.
The fact some people still don't understand the need to raise funds for a cure for type 1 diabetes is bewildering.
The fact that people, friends, family and total strangers will be all in one area all at one time and all walking and working together for one goal makes everything totally worth it.
