It started as such a simple idea, a friend loses her parents to cancer so everyone gets together to raise money. Then more people get together and raise more money. Soon the Idea is about so much more than one person or one story. We live in a time of rapid movement. information is everywhere, it can all seem so overwhelming. It seems that every day someone new is sick and suffering. There is such a profound sense of community in getting behind this effort to put and end to something that has taken someone from all of us. Each year the donations have gotten bigger, as have the crowds but the biggest feeling we’ve taken away from our participation is the profound joy for the time and lives we have. Even on this giant planet the good hearts of just a few people can make a world of difference. August on Sunday is proud to be a small part of something very important.
