Bennett's Brigade Meets California

Saturday, September 21, 2013

As our sweet friend Keight said it best: 
"Bennett's Brigade has officially crossed the country!"

This morning, my sorority sisters Keight and Kerry, along with 9 of Kerry's co-workers (all nurses with huge hearts), laced up their sneakers and put on their Bennett's Brigade T-shirts to walk for Cystic Fibrosis at the Great Strides for Cystic Fibrosis Walk in Santa Cruz, California.

And can I just tell you how much they raised to help us find a cure for Bennett??

It was a rainy fall day in Santa Cruz today, which Keight explained was great "because it has been hot lately and coastal folks can't take the heat out here. :)"  Despite a cool and cozy morning, the Santa Cruz crew enjoyed watching the waves crash as they walked along. 

And can I just tell you how much they raised to help us find a cure for Bennett???

Kerry's son Quentin enjoys a Bennett's Brigade cookie (our little way of saying thanks to the group since we couldn't be there)!  Kerry said the cookies were a hit, especially for her.  She said the cookie kept Quentin in the stroller. :)


...well, for a little while. :)  Of course, the Great Strides for Cystic Fibrosis Walk is a Walk, even for the tiniest feet.

And can I just tell you how much they raised to help us find a cure for Bennett????
