My heart is touched!

My friend Antonella lost her only brother to Suicide a couple years ago. I have seen her and her sister stuggle with this loss. Last year they did an over night walk to raise money for suicide awareness and prevention. This year I decided to join her in the walk (not over night, just a 3 to 5 mile walk) to show my support to her, and her family. I set my fundraising goal to a measly $100 but feared that I wouldn't even be able to raise that much. I was completely amazed when within 5 or so minutes the donations I received were over my goal.

This is Antonella's son Jackson. He walks for his Uncle Jimmy.

Thank you to those of you who have donated! And for any of you who would like to donate, please do not let my small goal hold you back!

And here is a link to Jimmy's virtual memorial page so you can learn about him and his awesome life!
