I just wanted to take a moment and send out a big Thank You to everyone who walked or donated to our TBS Making Strides Walk-A-Thon Team 2013. It was an absolutely glorious day at Mizner Park, with over 5000 friends and neighbors turning out with one common goal, Cure Breast Cancer ASAP. Our team was comprised of over 20, mostly TBS members but also friends and family, oh and a couple of pooches. We raised over $1500, and as Co-President and Co Captain with Nancy of our team I couldn't be prouder.
