We finally got to the pavilion, Austin limping, after the event had already started and tried to find a place for Austin to sit for a second.
|Such a sweet boy, he has a smile despite feeling miserable|
They had all the kids that are currently battling cancer go up on the stage and receive a medal and have their pictures taken. You can see from the picture how stressed I am and how not-excited Austin is to be there. I just can't believe that we are a part of this. I can't understand why any of these precious children have to go through this.
Austin couldn't take part in the actual walk so we wandered around a little, had a popsicle and the kids got their faces painted.
Kevin walked with the others and took a picture next to Austin's picture along the route.
So it was a tough morning. I hope we can contribute more to this cause in the future because they really do make a difference. Hopefully a year from now, things will be better and we will be able to look beyond ourselves to help others, because the need is so great.
