I participated in my second National Kidney Foundation of Michigan kidney walk last weekend in Ann Arbor. There were eight of us on the "Giffy's Kidneys" team, including the wonderful Pauline, who is also living with kidney disease. We raised $780, but that wasn't the highlight of the day.
The 1.2 mile walking path through the Concordia University campus led us to a gorgeous overlook, captured in the image below.
How could I ever -- for one second -- get down when I'm surrounded by friends and scenery like this?
