We went to a benefit walk for a family down in Saratoga Springs who had lost their mother/wife and new little baby - all unexpectedly . At the end of this post will be a link if you'd like to read more about them. For signing up, we each got a pair of orange crocs, as that is what Wendy (the mom who died) always wore to work as a nurse. You could also purchase an orange balloon for a dollar.
Below is a picture of the husband and children joining the walk.
Another picture of the family.
Everyone gathered at the end of the walk and we all let our balloons go at the same time. It was very touching.
We each bought a headband to wear (as all the money spent would go to this family)
