Diabetes Stinks!

On September 19th, the entire Darby family participated in the Walk to Cure Diabetes for JDRF. Our family raised $2,200! We are very thankful for the support and donations. All 11 family members walked...and it was a very early morning (thus why we all look so adorable).
Here are pics from our day in Little Rock. We had a blast and Nathan and I were in awe of the support for finding the cure for diabetes. It's on our "impossible prayer" list. I hope and pray there is a cure in our lifetime! Our family motto was "diabetes stinks"-- which was Alex's closing remark in the video we made to raise money. Deb designed our shirts-- way to go Deb! She was also on the committee and was in charge of all the children's activities. It was impressive. There were bounce houses, aquariums, face painting, etc. 4,000 people participated in the walk. It was an amazing day.
