    Will try to make it. Great event, and great cause (close to my heart).

    Thanks to the JLMC for continuing to host this event!

    Thanks again to the JLMC for holding the event. Weather was beautiful, and the walkers had a great time.

    Really proud of my 5 year old son Casey for completing the entire walk this year (in the past 2 years, he’s been too tired to finish and I either had to take a shortcut or carry him back to Moose Hill). Happy to have been able to participate again this year, and look forward to doing it again next May!

    P.S. Nice to see and say hello to a few friends that I hadn’t seen since taking my new job in Merrimack. Thanks to Kathy and others for keeping Casey entertained during our quick “break” from the walk!
