Getting ready to walk

New BFF's

On Sunday May 3rd I participated in the Okanagan chapter of the MS Canada walk . This is an annual event held in Kelowna and about five hundred people attended this year. It was inspiring to see all of the participants that had MS, and who were of all ages come out and participate in the walk. Before the walk the organizers of this event released several balloons into the sky in memory of some MS victims who had lost their battle to this disease in the past year. When the walk begin we started with a warm up by Ekahi Yoga center, from Kelowna. This was really fun and I got to do the warm up on stage with them which was so cool, and a lot of fun. Then when the walk began I stayed behind to play with some of the kids. That was one of the things I loved about this event, that they had something for everyone. They had chalk, bubbles and several games for the kids to play. Then when everyone was back from the walk they held a BBQ with hot dogs, chips and cookies! During the BBQ I walked around and talked with people, as well I played with the kids some more. One little girl was so shy yet so excited to see me that she couldn’t decide if she should come over to me or not, I finally went over to her. In the end we played several games and then left with a very cute picture. I was going to present the awards, but the event raised so much money that they could not count all of the money in time, to also get the awards handed out. So the awards were announced online. They still don’t have a final tally, but so far they have raised $44,678. Amazing!!👑
