Colin's Walk for Childhood Cancer

Last Saturday Colin's Crew organized a second very successful event. Approximately 50 families braved the cold & wind to support Colin's Crew & Kacey Rose Foundation and walked the Linear Trail here in Wallingford.

Donations are still coming in so we don't have an official total, but thus far the event raised over $2,000 for the Kacey Rose Foundation. Photos will be uploaded shortly! In the mean time we wanted to share a few words from a close family's blog:

"Saturday morning was bitter cold and windy - but there was nothing but warmth felt in Wallingford as many came out to support a wonderful cause. There was coffee and munchkins to scoff, face painting to stir smiles, fire trucks for excitement, clowns to spring laughter... and LOVE EVERYWHERE!!! Nobody cried about the weather, instead they huddled together in a common bond, and the friction created could have melted any ice cap for sure.

The attendance was matched by the spirit of those determined to make a difference... and the event moved me; it reminds me that life is too fragile to harp on the details, to be grateful for what I got, and to treasure each and every day regardless."

We couldn't have said it better!!
