Team Ruby Sue
Race Day was October 20th and Team Ruby Sue was there in full force. If you have never taken the opportunity to attend one of these gatherings, all I can say is "WOW"! How awesome!
We felt so very honored to be there for Aunt Sue but deeply saddened at the same time that we had to be there at all. I overheard Pops at the end of the event say, "Wouldn't it be great if next year no one had to be here because we had a cure!" How wonderful that would be.
We have put together a little video of our outing and set it to one of Aunt Sue's favorite songs, You Are My Special Angel...and that she is.
