It's a walk organized by a family that lost their little girl, Hannah. And it's for all families that have lost a child. They survive 100% on donations, and this is even is free for the grieving families. They have t-shirts for you to decorate (we write our children's names and a little something to them), Compassionate friends, another great org, makes buttons with your pictures, and a very moving balloon release before we walk along the lake. It might all sound simple, but there's something about being surrounded by other people that know what you've gone through, that understand that loss.
Here are some pictures from the day:

while holding our balloons for our angels.
|I LOVE this one.|
|All those balloons, for all those children...|
They had notes to them attached
