The walk today for hospice was fantastic. We did our 2 1/2 mile walk through some really beautiful walking trails, that are only 5 mins from my home, that i didn’t even know they were there.

OK, i’m going to do something really cool, that i’ve never done any kind of walks or fundraising in my life. This coming Saturday i am going in a walk to raise money for Mission Hospice Society. The walk is 2 1/2 miles long. I have been walking for an hour several days a week now, and my walk is 2 1/2 miles long, so i know i can do this, and i’m really excited about it. What better way to spread the news about HD, and do something for my community. When i ask people if they would like to sponsor me, i can tell them about the Hospice Society, and how in about 10 years or so i may be needing hospice due to HD. I did that this morning in church. No matter how many times i have told people i have HD, most do not understand, but when i said this morning that i was doing this walk, because i am terminal, and will need hospice some day too, that many of us may need hospice care at some time in our lives, people looked like they “got it”. Eric said on one thread that one thing we can do for advocacy, is get involved with the needs in our community. Maybe i will find out more about our Hospice Society, and get involved with them….now i just have to hope there are bathrooms along the walking route lol
