This is Eli

A blog about Eli. A blog about survival – and by that, I mean life!

Mark, Laila, Eli and I did our first Great Strides Walk, a fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

I’ll say more later – gotta take a nap before I head to work tonight.

Below are our pics.

We ended up raising $1,000.

I was really happy with that for a first effort – thanks everyone! We are so behind on thank you notes. Forthcoming, I swear! This weekend…time off. Almost here!

I saw a lot of families that got really into it, getting sponsors, setting up lawn-chair camps, etc. Some teams had over 100 people walking. I met some cool people and can’t wait to learn more about them!

Everyone with CF wears a bracelet.

Everyone with CF wore a bracelet at the walk, which is actually done because CFers are supposed to stay six feet apart to avoid cross infection. Eli probably didn’t need to – he was covered up in his stroller. I just put it on because it was cute!
