This past weekend, Sean and I participated in a benefit: "Walk to Defeat ALS".
Some of my classmates put together a team (Estrella Mountain Nursing Students) with the goal of raising $1000 for ALS research.
We dressed in green to honor the father of one of our classmates who passed away from ALS just before the semester started.
We surpassed our goal of $1000 and walked the 2.5 miles together with what seemed like a thousand other people.
It was a pretty neat event, and we felt fortunate to be included in the cause.
I know people personally affected with this disease (and it's sister disease, Multiple Sclerosis), so I was happy to help out.
I was proud of Sean for being willing to participate with me.
And our group had a really fun time together.
