Walk Run & Roll: We love Rogers House!

On Sunday June 17th 2012, Father's Day, our family did the Walk Run & Roll for Rogers House.  It was great.  Breton and I ran (he left me in his dust but we did run it just not together:) and Daphne and Jeff walked the 5Km course.  Afterwards we got a BBQ lunch and were entertained by a trampoline show, petting zoo and we met Ottawa Senator Chris Neil!
We got to see my Mom's good friend Jenny, whose grandson Connor was on the Dream Team.  There was a VERY moving speech by a family whose child stayed at Roger's House.  The Dream Team released butterflies and started us off on the race.  We learned that the event raised $160,000.  When we got home Breton asked if we would be doing it again next year!  For sure!!

Robyn - we were thrilled and so surprised to see you and so proud of you and your beautiful family. How very special it made us feel to know that you, Jeff, Daphne and Breton came out so early on Father's Day to join our little team. I never stopped telling all my friends about you being there - I am so pleased you found me, as I never see any one when I'm out!! Bless your very kind hearts. So pleased that you and the kids had such a great time. It was special indeed, and such an awesome way to celebrate Father's Day as well as an amazing cause. Roger's House is such a very special place. Connor is so loved there, and so well cared for. He is going in on Thursday until Monday to give his Mum and Dad and little sister a break. We shall have to get together with you lovely girls again soon. Until then, enjoy your summer and doing good in the world. Much love to you, your family and your sisters and their families. Jenny xo
