colon cancer stinks!

i was invited to come and shoot at the "undy 5000"---
a walk that raises money for colon cancer.
this "team" was walking in memory of their
wife, mom, grandmother, and friend, tina.
i never really understood the deep meaning of a "walk"
until we participated in the "march of dimes",
in honorof our girl that we almost lost.
these walks are super emotional, the walkers usually
have so so much invested in "the cause" and are very
passionate about who they are honoring...
this was no different.
as i watched all of these people,
walk and finish this race, i was so moved.
the stories that each team represents are
so inspirational and the people who
have fought or are fighting this terrible disease
are so courageous.
i hope that this serves as a sweet reminder to this family
of tina, and that they treasure
these memories for a long long time.

the sun rises on the undy 5000.
the team. i so hope that this is how my family would dress
if they were honoring me.
i love it.
tina's daughter
hilarious. this is tina's son.
put your big girl panties on...and get over it.
has this phrase EVER been used better?!?!?!
i think not.
i would SO love to know what was on her mind...i am sure it was tina.
tina's husband and granddaughter.
i love this.
the other granddaughter getting ready for the race- she rode in a
stroller the whole way.
THAT is how i want to do a race. smart girl.
i can't even begin to tell you the greatness of the "outfits" this is a SMALL taste.
the little boy on the lefts "undies" said "i love my grandpa's booty"
crack me up.
even the dogs hate colon cancer.
tina's husband, that smile on his face- gotta be remembering his wife.
these two photo's were not of this team, but i loved them so much.
this one is precious. this couple clearly has conquered way more than the
undy 5000. the looks on their faces are priceless.
i tear up just looking at them.
and THIS lady...well, i don't even have words about how much i like her.
this chick wants to kick colon cancer's butt....and i am pretty sure she will.
mother and daughter- walking for a friend. and workin' some really fun eyelashes too.
this cutie pie needed a drink after a long walk. so cute.
the team shirt. what else is there to say?
tina, i hope your family did you proud.
thank you wright family- this day blessed my heart.
