Now walk it out....

Yeah, you read that right. On October 14th I will be exactly 28 weeks and 1 day preggo and I will be walking to raise money for student athlete scholarships. (My other option was to golf and if you've ever seen me swing a club without a baby bump in my way you wouldn't want to be anywhere near me swinging a club with a 28 week belly to add to my mad golf skills!)

I'm not a student athlete, and never was, nor do I work in the athletic department. So why am I participating you ask?

I'm doing it because I believe the student athletes at Western Oregon University deserve the best opportunity to be successful both in the classroom and on the field. These kids take a full course load, travel for games during season, spend countless hours practicing in season and during the off season and most have at least one part-time job all while maintaining a higher overall GPA than the non-athlete attending WOU.

I'm doing it because Daniel and I love Western Oregon University and the kiddos that attend there.

I'm doing it because our coaches find a way to win even though we play with far fewer scholarships than many other schools in our conference.

I'm doing it because I hope that if my little girl is good enough to play a sport in college that there will be people to willing support her dreams and her school.

I'm doing it because no gift is too small- a lot of little gifts can make a huge difference!

My goal is to raise $1,500 for scholarships I started my mission out by throwing $50 in and have had some folks help get me on my way but I still have a long way to go!
