2005 Walk to D'Feet ALS

For the forth year in a row I had the privilege of joining the Dream Team in the Walk to D'Feet ALS. Thank you to everyone that supported Heather's Dream Team and sponsored me as a walker this year. With your help the Dream Team raised more than $6,150 for patient services here in the Evergreen State and nationally directed research for treatments and a cure for ALS also know as Lou Gehrig's Disease and medically as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. The pictures in this photo album were taken before during and after the walk.

The Dream Team participates in the Walk to D'feet ALS at Seward Park in Seattle, Washington. This year's team consisted of long time friends and coworkers from Cypress Semiconductor and The Standard Insurance Company. For me the day started out with rain and it looked like we were in for a walk in the rain. But, the rain stayed away from South Seattle where Seward park is and by the end of the walk we had sunshine.

Below you will find pictures of everyone participating in this year's Dream Them. We all had a great time walking and many of us felt that the time passed more quickly than in the past. I look forward to next years walk with this great group of people.
