We Did It

I never thought back in July when Jeremy & I decided to start fundraising for the big Chelsea Hutchison Walk on September 23rd we would ever get so much support. We are over whelmed with the amount of donations made to our Team. We have several friends walking with us here in WA. As well as on-line friends who are walking in their states on the East Coast & Utah. Our team came together & raised over $2,600 dollars. That is one whole seizure grant for another family with money left over!! 

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You to all our family & friends for your generosity. As we head into the weeks before Banyan leaves for his final training in Colorado this is a great reminder that his training would not be possible with out The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation. That they have never met me or my family but they graciously stepped up to give us the grant for Banyan. Jeremy is over the moon that he reached his $800 Goal plus some extra. Miss Julie has promised him a little something that will keep him company while Banyan is away finishing his training.

Yes folks a Banyan size stuffed Golden Retriever. We will put Banyan's purple bandana on him when he arrives. This is Julie's she uses for fundraisers, but Jeremys will look very similar. He is so excited, he plans to call him Banyan Jr. Hopefully Banyan doesn't get to upset when he sees his life size replica. This will be our HUGE Fundraiser again next year. Until then we hope everyone knows how thankful we are for your support. We look forward to making an even bigger contribution next year! Please watch for pictures from our walk late Sunday night.
