March of Dimes WalkAmerica

We had a wonderfully successful walk-a-thon. We had over 1350 walkers signed up to walk and an absolutely beautiful day for the walk. Starbucks helped the volunteers and walkers get ready for the walk. When they returned we had the finished site packed with things for them to. DragonSong preformed wonderfully for over 2 hours. I didn't see any folks dancing but I heard lots of praise. The kids had a great time with the moon bounce from Big Country Amusements, making slime with Mad Science DC, Go Go the Clowns face painting, and the My Gym's play space. The moms seemed to appreciate the INOVA baby changing and feeding area. The furry kids (aka dogs) didn't seem to mind getting weight by Science Diet since they walked away with a bag of treats. The March of Dimes Mom and Baby bus was on site for all to see what a portion of the money raised goes to. AKS Massage School students had a line of people waiting for massages. I was told it was a short wait and WELL worth it. Luckily Kaplan Photography was there to capture all of the fun.

There were so many other volunteers who were there and I want to thank you all for making the walk so much fun and such a great success.

Thank you!
