One of Packages For Kid Fighter's most anticipated events of the year is the annual St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer. Both of us are huge supporters and fundraisers for St. Jude, and we both look forward to the event year after year!
This year's event was no let down! We thought that after last year's event, it couldn't get any better... we were wrong! This year's Greater Boston St. Jude Walk/Run, held on September 24, 2016, was one of the biggest yet, held at Boston's Franklin Park Zoo. Together, we raised over $356,000 for the children of St. Jude!
At this year's walk, we met so many amazing people, including inspiring cancer survivors, super siblings, and even our favorite radio personality (that's you, Colton!!)! We handed out so many business cards and really spread our message about what we do as Packages For Kid Fighters. We were even invited to a Radio-thon for St. Jude in December hosted by our favorite country radio station, 101.7 The Bull!
Overall, the event was an amazing experience and we both had a blast! Here are just a couple photos from our wonderful day!

Many people stopped us and asked us to take photos of us with our signs. Spreading Bree's message everywhere we go!

Overall, the day was such an amazing and memorable experience and I am already counting down the days until next year's walk!
