walking for hunger- part one

hi every bloggie!

Oh boy! Yesterday was the Walk for Hunger! A 20 mile walk to benefit local food pantries and help feed children/families in need. This is mom and her work walking crew. We as a group raised $6000 total for the event. Mom raised $780 herself! That's alot of money! I personally think she had the best fund raising honor roll.. thanks to Brucethecat, Mango & Dexter, The Miss White Fluffy Tail Khyra, Sam and Pippen, the OP pack , Nermal the cat, Agatha & Archie, Chester and my galpal Lacie. Pawsome job! and a super big thank you!( I hope I didn't leave out anyone)
The event, like most started in the Boston Commons. The weather started as overcast but got up to 90. Don't worry, I started at 7am when it was 60 degrees and only walked 6 miles.
And.... we're off.
I was super excited to be in the city. I've never really walked in the city before. Everyone-even the policeman wanted to say hi to me.
This is I think around mile 2. The infamous Citgo sign means the home of the Boston Red Sox is near- Fenway Pawwhk.
We walked along the Commonwealth Ave parkway. Lots of doggies. See that one! Looks as gigantic as my cuz Tula- I'm pretty far away. S/he was a beautiful St Bernard.
Ha! The 1st Check in point was sponsored by mom's work. That's Linda who is part of our team! She got me so excited I tried to jump onto the table. That gave these ladies something to talk about.
Next checkpoint- water break.
Next we arrived at Chestnut Hill Reservoir. MA has all these reservoirs around but NO SWIMMING allowed. Boo! But sausages, fried dough, coffee were. Hmm. What should I sample.
But this was the point fun aunt dee was picking me up. Ladadadaha
Where is she?
There she is... okay few more fotos to post but that's enough for today. And now for a Pawdance Film Festival Update!
Did you know the RH Mango sings?
In his latest romantic flick, he croons and pleads with the best. Hold onto your pantaloons ladies, this is the flick for you. Mango's rendition of "let's get it on" will leave you breathless.
if the trailor is a rockin' don't come knockin'. You still have until May 9th to enter the 2010 Pawdance Film Festival
