Matt and I spent this past Sunday morning at Pocono Raceway. I know, it’s not really a surprise to find us at the racetrack. But our agenda was not to watch race cars (although there were some cars on the track today for HPDE events that made for a lovely soundtrack).
Instead, we were at the racetrack to participate in the MS Walk, a cause that is near and dear to our heart. We walked in memory of Matt’s dad, who passed away this past October. He was a big supporter of his MS Society chapter in Florida, and even served as Walk Ambassador one year. And he was also a big NASCAR fan, so Pocono seemed like the right place to walk.
A big THANK YOU to our family and friends who helped us raise more than $4,000 for the National MS Society. There are still a couple donations coming in, so we’ll have an exact number soon. And there is still time to support us. Click here if you’d like to make a donation.
We couldn’t have asked for a better day. Here are a few pictures from the walk:
