Please take a minute and look at this list of walks going on this year. It would be wonderful for some OCF members to attend one of these inspirational events. I always look forward to going and meeting my OCF friends there. If anyone is going, respond to this post and tell which event you can attend. It will make it easier for fellow OCF members to find you. Words cant express the overwhelming feelings I had when I first met my OCF friends in person. I cried tears of relief in seeing survivors and real life heros smile

Personally, I will be going to Susan Lauria's NJ walk Sept 25 and SusanM's walk in Bethlehem PA on Oct 2.

Thanks, Christine, for giving us this info. My treatment won't be over until early Sept and I want to see how I'm doing then.

I am planning on making the Pittsburgh walk. It would be great to be able to see some people from the forum. Hoping I will get to meet someone. I'm excited about the walk and hoping we get a good turnout. Linda

Great LInda, I hope we can get some people from the forum. You really are representing OCF when you attend these walks and supporting the cause of awareness.

Thank you so much!!!

Maybe laps, not continuous distance.....
