Great Strides 2014 was a HUGE success!

Before I get into any more news about Legendary and when it will begin posting, I MUST give an update about this year's Great Strides.

Team Jacob raised over $9,000, and the Valencia Great Strides walk has raise $112,000 to date!

That's frickin' amazing. Our small community raised a butt load of money!!

The walk day was hot and wonderful. This year we were in a new location at the mall, one that was a little removed from the "in your face" presence we've had in years past, but the flip side was that the traffic was a little safer.

The turnout for the walk was exceptional, and our team had close to 50 walkers. I owe all of you personal "thank yous," and they will be forthcoming. For now, I'm sending out a HUGE, universal "thanks" to all of our family and friends. It's your love and support that has kept our family afloat and filled with optimism. I wish I could hug each and every one of you. Alas, that would be costly and some of you might not like getting a big embrace from a sobbing father.

Tell you what, next year you're all invited to the Walk and we'll have a blow out in our backyard.

Not sure where we'll fit everyone...

Who cares!!

Seriously, though, thank you one and all. Your generosity instills hope in the lives of so many people you do not know. God bless you.
