Light The Night 2009

The Light the Night Walk was a huge success!! Erik and I were completely overwhelmed by the number of friends and family that joined 'Dylan's Dream Team'! What a great reason to be overwhelmed!! We had our family, our closest friends, and new friends join us as we proudly walked in Dylan's honor. We had the largest group there, with a total of 125 people!! WOW!!! It was a sea of blue Dylan shirts!! As a group we raised $2400 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society--and THAT's AMAZING!!
A special thanks to the Davis Family for providing our special Dylan T-shirts, and also to the Pieters Family for providing special Dylan Water Bottles!! I will put a close up of the shirt and water bottle later. We cannot thank each and every one of you enough for coming out and supporting us! We are truly blessed with the most amazing support system!! Thank you for coming out and taking time out of your busy schedules to support our family and this great cause!! YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!
For those of you who were not able to make it this year--there is always next year......and this time Baby D will be walking with us.....and every year to follow! We were so excited to be able to carry a "survivor" balloon down the dark pathway, lighting it up with every step we took. It was a very special night, a night we will never forget! We are looking forward to many more events and walks and want to help others fight this horrible disease.
Thank you!! We love you!!
The Praskins Family
