Happy St Patrick's Day/Mary's Walk 2013

A chilly day for a walk but, nevertheless, a good day to raise money for cancer research.  Mary's Walk does just that!  Raising to date, 2 million dollars for cancer research.  My husband and I have only been a part of this walk since 2011 when his secretary for 26 years died of liver cancer in January of 2011.  So many people have been touched by cancer, whether it is a family member or friend and the stories are so moving. Team Orr was not as big as the first year that we walked but still was a good turnout.

Kim Block was the Master of Ceremonies and had her own story to tell. Her father died of cancer at the age of 59 so she is very connected raising money for cancer research.

Let the walk/run begin. Just so happens this year the walk is on St Patrick's Day.   I would definitely stay away from Main Street in Saco on this day every year.  Traffic was stopped for at least 20-30 minutes while runners/walkers went through the traffic lights downtown.  The intersection of North Street and Main Street was backed up for miles.  Check out all the green in the pictures of the walkers and runners!!!
