Walkathon for Make A Wish today.


Today was the Make a Wish Walkathon. It was held in Liberty State Park, which is exit 14B off the NJ Turnpike. I've never been to this state park before. I've never been to the Statue of Liberty or Ellis Island. Isn't that sad? I guess it's harder to make the time to sightsee around your own area. I've see a lot of sights in Washington DC, and Chicago, and even in Hollywood. I've been to Philadelphia and Boston. And I've been to NYC, of course, but I've never really seen ALL the sights. So this is the closest I've ever gotten to the Statue of Liberty. Well, no, actually I was on a boat tour once or maybe twice that went around the statue. But, anyway, you get the idea.

It was a good day for a walkathon, because it was cool and not raining, but not cold. Of course, it might have been nice to sleep in today after Alyssa's party last night... but we did it anyway.

I didn't earn a whole lot of money to donate, but it's a start. I plan on volunteering more for Make a Wish in the future.

Only visited Ellis Island once, about 10 years ago - need to go back!
