The party keeps on rockin’… and the party keeps gettin’ bigger! The previous week threatened rain, but the morning of Walk MS Grand Rapids turned out beautiful, dry, and full of more energy than ever. Our friend Brad kept the music blasting and we re-connected with many friends along the way. This year the c0ncr373 cru5h3r5 re-assembled with additional students from Blandford School, handily raising another $500 for the fight against multiple sclerosis. That’s more than one thousand dollars since the dawn of the cru5h3r5 just a few years ago… well done, kids!
It’s an early morning, but the cru5h3r5 are ready to roll!
These kids are crazy!
At Aquinas College we were met by two other Blandford students, bringing our total to eight. Look out!
Mrs. Heenstra popped in to give us a proper send-off.
The Stetlers were on-hand to give us some volunteer muscle power!
Prepare for lift-off!
On the road again…
A shameless advertisement for our next event, a mere three weeks away!

We nipped in to the Sturrus Sports and Fitness Center for a quick snack. It was a sea of orange!

Munch munch munch…
Outside, the “Pucker Powder” dispenser turned out to be a huge hit with the kids… and especially the cru5h3r5!
“We love this event! It’s all about running around outside and eating sugar!”
Our piggy stuffed animals were of course popular with the little ones…
Our fine peddlers of MS wares!
