MS Crawl For A Cure

Last Saturday my sister-in-law, Jenn and my cousin-in-law, Meghan hosted "MS Crawl For A Cure" in order to raise money for the MS Challenge Walk.  They will be walking 50 miles in 3 days on Cape Cod while my mother and I will again be doing the Big Top Tent crew.

The bar crawl went to four bars all of which are within a couple of blocks from each other in the Quincy Market/Fanuiel Hall area of Boston.  At the last stop we had food and raffles.

Ok so not only does Magners have a higher alcohol content then beer but it also comes in bigger bottles so needless to say we were feeling pretty good after a few of those!  We thought we looked pretty good drinking right out of the bottles - all we needed were brown paper bags.  Ha ha!

I of course made the brother pose for a picture before too much drinking happen.  At the end of the night all of us got together for a picture.  We can't expect much in terms of smiles and everyone looking considering the group (some people, not naming names do not like to have their picture taken)!  So thankful to all of them for just being there.  I have the best family who have supported me since the day I was diagnosed with MS and continue to do so.  I'm a lucky girl to have such great siblings and cousins.



The pictures pretty much speak for themselves.  We had a lot of fun.  Many friends came out to show their support.  Jenn raised a lot of money at the event and it will also go to MS.  Jenn and Meghan each have to raise $1,500 to participate in the MS Challenge Walk and they are both very close to their goals.
 
Meghan, Jenn's sister, was happy to be the "announcer" again.  You may remember that she held that same megaphone at my fundraiser last November.  Oh and I won!  I got a $50 gift certificate to a salon I go to in my hometown.  I seriously never use to win ANYTHING but I won there and you may remember that I won at Katelyn's Marathon Fundraiser for MS!  I hope my luck continues!!!

Now for a very big THANK YOU to Jenn and Meghan.  I am so proud to call these ladies family.  Not only are they leaving their husbands and children for 3 days to walk 50 miles but they are raising money and awareness for MS.  They are both great supports to me and I'm so appreciative of what they are doing.  They are amazing women!  And you already know that Katelyn ran the Boston Marathon on the MS team and raised a ton of money.  My other family members are outstanding supporters as well and regularly donate money and attend events w/ me.  I really to have the best family. 

Thanks Jenn and Meghan for a great event.  It was a lot of fun.  I can't wait until the MS Challenge Walk on the Cape.  We are going to have so much fun!!!  xoxo
