Bennett's Brigade 2012

This year's Walk turned out lovely!  Thank you to *everyone* who came out on Saturday.  Your coming meant the world to our family!!

I have so many pictures from the Walk I want to post and I will do that in the next few days.  But first, I want to post pictures of Bennett's Brigade.  I wish I had a picture of all of those who are a part of Bennett's Brigade.  But since so many of those in Bennett's Brigade live far away, these pictures will have to do.  These are pictures of all of those who were able to come out and join us at our Waco Great Strides Walk for Cystic Fibrosis.

The Zuniga Family sporting the green for our bean!

Our beloved babysitter Margaret with the boys.

Our faithful neighbors Judy and Drew who came from the very first moment to set up and stayed until the very last moment of tear down.  Incredibly loving people.

My brother JC who came from Mississippi - we loved getting to see him!

Oliver enjoyed the kids games and "Pirates and Princess" party.

Our little family.  Missed the rest of our family who couldn't be there but were there in spirit.

Our good friends, the Carneys - such a sweet family.  They come to our Walk every year and support us in numerous ways the other 364 days of the year!

Mike and Jamey sporting Bennett's Brigade.

 Ms. Casson, one of Oliver's Pre-K3 teachers, who came out on a Saturday with her granddaughter.  So very sweet of her!

My dear friend Carol - one of many of my friends who came out and helped set up the Walk at 8AM!

Giving BJ's a thumbs up!

I love seeing my friend Karem at the Walk each year.  She is a reminder to me that God gives good things, even in the midst of pain.  Karem did not know me when she showed up to our first Walk in 2010 to support Bennett, inspired after reading my blog.  Our friendship began at the Walk but we make special efforts to get together regularly now.  I'm so glad - I love this girl!

Karem's little girls who I adore:  Caetlynn and Katherine

Mark and Margaret

There are others who came to the Walk on Saturday whom we forgot to photograph in the hustle and bustle of the Walk.  But they were no less appreciated and are no less loved.  Thank you to everyone who decided to come out and demonstrate solidarity with us in the midst of our lifetime struggle with Cystic Fibrosis.   We love you!!


  1. Whoa, your team is HUGE! What wonderful support you have! Such an inspiration for me, I am already looking forward to next year.

  2. Breck,

    Super random connecting but I'm friends with Mazvita and went to the Rock (I just graduated). She was talking to me a few weeks ago about you and Bennett and Oliver and this blog and I got curious, so I found you.

    One of the families I've babysat for the longest has a child with cystic fibrosis and I've loved reading about your journey on this blog.

    I'm so incredibly encouraged by your honesty in this battle and your commitment to finding a cure! Anyway, I found this today and was super encouraged by this guys attempt to raise awareness and though you'd be encouraged as well!

    Praying for you and your family.
