We did it!

We walked ALL of the 20 miles. I started, my family joined in and Steve finished it up! There ended up being buses to take us to the finish line at every checkpoint, so meeting up ended up being quite easy. The best news is that, after all the tallies are in - we collected $504 to fight hunger in Massachusetts. One of the things we liked the most about our walk is that there are signs all along the route that teach us more about Project Bread and about the work that they do. Here is what we learned...Through project Bread, $100 provides 5 families with groceries for a week! $50 buys 250 lbs of food for local soup kitchens to feed hungry people. We were shocked to realize that YOUR $500 will supply 25 families with groceries for a week OR will buy 2500lbs of food (THAT'S OVER ONE TON) for soup kitchens across MA. Great work on helping us meet and exceed our goals. Our kids are ready to walk next year and would love friends to join us! :)

We enjoyed some time on the Boston Common (including ICE CREAM) after our walk. It was a wonderful day! (And thankfully the weather was perfect!)

Also - check out the T-shirts! We got such rave reviews on them throughout the walk and after the race! Our family had a lot of fun tie dying them and adding our family logo!
