Walk to D'Feet ALS

Each year the Evergreen chapter of the ALS Association holds the Walk to D'feet ALS. This once a year fund raising event helps to support the ALS association's mission to support those in the Pacific Northwest suffering from ALS and their families.

This was my third year participating in the walk with the Montag Dream Team, which has grown in size each year. This year we were all a little disappointed by the cold, windy, rainy weather at first, but, it didn't spoil our fun in the least. Heather started like a rocket on her recumbent trike and I never caught up wit her. I think she has been practicing since last year for this walk!

Valentina and Bruiser. The 2004 Montag Dream Team. Most of us that is, a few people were off taking care of registration. It would have been realy nice to have everyone in the picture. The walk is about to begin and the Montag Dream Team (all the blue shirts) makes a strong showing. Heather and Gary before the walk begins.
