2010 Kids Helping Kids Fun Walk - inflatables in KCHS gym 2010 Kids Helping Kids Fun Walk - Frank Murphy meets Mr. Owl A torrential downpour on Sunday afternoon, right before the Kids Helping Kids Fun Walk started, meant they had to move most of the festivities indoors for the second year in a row. I tried to get as many people as possible to attend by treating my honorary chairmanship as if I were running for office. I “campaigned” at three churches and a school. I wish I had time to go to more churches and more schools. The walk is a fundraiser for Columbus Home.

2010 Kids Helping Kids Fun Walk - Krispy Kreme dipping station 2010 Kids Helping Kids Fun Walk - Rita's Ice The large crowd packed into Knoxville Catholic High School to enjoy treats from Domino’s, Krispy Kreme, Rita’s Ice and Chili’s. They also had fresh fruit, cookies and cotton candy contributed by volunteers. Live music was provided by Jaimie Cameron of Slow Blind Hill.

2010 Kids Helping Kids Fun Walk - Fr. Ragan Schriver speaks to crowd 2010 Kids Helping Kids Fun Walk - view along Fox Lonas Road A break in the weather allowed us to take the walk as planned. Very few could walk as fast as Fr. Ragan Schriver, who led the procession along with Fr. Chris Michelson. Sportscaster Rick Russo did the walk to help rehabilitate his knee. He injured it in a media softball game last year. I was excited to meet Catholic blogger Frank Weathers. I promised to read certain posts about his personal journey to the Church. Either of them would make a great honorary chairperson in the future. It was a great experience for me. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

    You were a humble honorary chairperson, too! The Boy Scouts offered special “Honorary Chairperson Waterbottle Holding Service” for you at the gym door where no food or drink was permitted and you declined! :) It was a great time for a great cause. Our family goes every year. Thank you for all you did to make it a success!
