If you haven`t seen them yet, please look at some of the pictures taken the night before at Niagara Falls, when green lights helped to raise awareness about Lyme Disease. LINK
Saturday morning, May 18, dawned beautiful and slightly cloudy, just right for the hard work of setting up for the Awareness day at Chinguacousy Park in Brampton. Some of the pictures are shared here, but there are lots more to come. At the end of this post is a link to see more pictures in an album if you like.

All in all - a glorious day, and my dream of having a place where Lymies can find and give support, was very much true. The feedback was very positive, even if we didn't have as many people as in 2012. With the weather so nice, you can't blame people for wanting to go to the cottage!
DONATIONS (updated May 23)
However, donations are still coming in. Please hit the "Contact" button at the top if you would like to make a donation, no matter where in the world you are. For ONLINE DONATIONS, go to CanadaHelps and choose one or more of the Lyme Links there. You can put in a note that it is for the Brampton Walk 2013 effort, but all goes to the charity.
THANK YOU !!
