Team Lisa blazed a trail at the Komen Greater NYC Race for the Cure last month - the team's 7th year, and Luke and Mommy's fifth! The race might have been last month, but it's not too late to donate! Donations are accepted until October 31st, and this year more than ever, every single dollar counts! Donations are down considerably in 2012, and vital grants are in jeopardy of going unfunded in 2013 - leaving women in need without services, care, or support, as well as jeopardizing research funds. If you haven't given yet, please consider sending some money Team Lisa's way.
It's easy! Just visit www.komennyc.org/goto/paigeandluke2012 and click on the DONATE NOW button on the right hand side of the page. Your donation is tax deductible and will help women in need receive services and support they may not otherwise get. Please help Team Lisa!
Team Lisa: 2012 Edition
Luke and Mommy got an early start with an 8:00 train into Grand Central. Luke was so excited to ride the train into the city, just like Mommy & Daddy do!
No, really, he was excited. I promise. He also brought his pirate compass, just to be safe.
For the first year ever, Luke didn't ride in the stroller - he was scooting for the Cure! Mommy was impressed with how well he did staying close and listening to instructions in the big crowd of racers. (For the most part, anyway)
He was the master of all he surveyed. And hoo boy, ladies love Luke in a frog backpack - one lady even took his picture while he was on the move!
He was so excited to finish "Aunt Lisa's Race"!
He scooted like a champ, and did a great job holding it together on a very long day in the city that included the round trip train ride, taxis, the 5k race, amazing brunch at Ocean Grill, and a trip across Central Park to check out the steps of the Met (as featured in a library favorite, You Can't Take A Balloon into the Metropolitan Museum).
Celebratory ice cream for Luke! He had his mind on a Sponge Bob pop from the get-go, and boy did he earn it!
A great picture of Luke and Auntie Lisa...not so great of Mommy.
