Energy For Like Walk- Atlanta. Moves Like Jagger

This post is way past due, but the last weeks have been pretty crazy. Jagger is back in the ICU with the start of lung failures (post on that to come in next couple of days)
In top of it, we are officially involve in the real estate transaction from hell, we are suppose to close on May 23rd but so many last minute crazy events happened since we signed our contract that I am not even sure what will happen!
So let’s get back to the walk!
It was such a great event, and it was so rewarding to see all our hard work (as I m a part of the organizing committee) paid off!
Everything went as plan and we had a larger crowd that expected.
We estimated that 800 people showed up and we raised almost $80,000 (we are still counting some of the money from the day of the walk).
I was also able to meet a few of my fellow facebook Mito families and it is great to finally meet after talking online for so long!
I also wanted to thank everyone that came and walk with our team (my host family came from Indiana and Arizona and my high school friends came from Indiana), everyone that donated to our team and everyone that took a minute to check our Moves like Jagger page and shared with their friends to raise awareness.

Of course, the only thing that would had made that day better for me, was if Annett and Jagger were able to participate, and I hope that next year, Jagger will be leading “Moves like Jagger” at the 3rd Annual Atlanta EFL walk.

 The UMDF also had a EFL walk in Evansville on May 4th and some of my high school friend started a team and walk that day. Thank you very much to Allison, Augusta, Michelle and her husband Craig! It is so cool to see Moves Like Jagger team going "National" :)

Great Crowd at the Walk
