Walk For Hope 2010

Every year John and I volunteer at the Philadelphia/NJ City of Hope Walk for Hope.  John’s cousin, Harry, works for City of Hope and is one of the people in charge of the walk.  In the past, the walk was for breast cancer, but this year, the walk was moved up date wise, and was in support of all women’s cancers.  The walk starts at Campbell’s Field, home of the Camden Riversharks in Camden, NJ, walks up and over the Ben Franklin Bridge, which crosses the Delaware River, and ends on the waterfront in Philadelphia (from where participants can pick up the Riverlink ferry and ride back to NJ and their cars).  Most years, this one included, it seems like it rains.  But, that doesn’t stop people from coming out and donating to a very worthwhile cause.  Everyone, volunteers and walkers alike, deserve a big round of applause for what they do!

Here’s some pictures from this year’s event:

Finally, here’s a picture of this little guy that showed up before the walk began.  You don’t see many of these running around Camden, NJ.  There’s not many trees for them to be hiding in.  I hope he found some good shelter and some good food.

A baby opossum. He was soaking wet from the rain.
