The Autism Walk

As promised, here I am updating my blog. On Saturday, May 30th, I participated in the Walk Now for Autism Bay Area with my friends Katie and Sean(they are actually a couple, how cute). I have donated money to charities before, but this time I felt like actually participating and it was a great feeling. I raised $50 towards the cause myself, but overall $220,000 was raised! Awesome.

L to R: Me, Sean, Katie, and then other people on the Westwood Wildcats team. The walk was fun and there were a lot of sponsors there to help out. Sean and I actually ended up getting Toys R'Us Reward Cards from the Toys R' Us booth. Geoffery the Giraffe was there and so was Gigante from the San Jose Giants.

Haha, I think it is funny that Sean, Katie, and myself are the only ones wearing hats. I was glad to be a part of the walk and would definitely do it again and recommend it to everyone. I don't know of anyone with Autism personally, but like the great Jackie Robinson said, "A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives."
