Fight For Fonstad Walk-A-Thon
Many many students/individuals raised pledges to donate to Grade 2 teacher Mrs. Fonstad who has recently been diagnosed with a rare lung cancer that targets non-smoking young women.  She is less than 30 years old, has a loving husband James and two sweet girls Olivia & Kaybree.  I have had the opportunity to get to know Megan & family since we moved here 3 years ago; we both sit on two community boards, our kids have been in daycare together and since we both have young children, we see each other often.  Megan has attended many of the crafty classes I put on at EFC and I love the enthusiasm she brings every time!
 
It was so wonderful to see you & your smile today Megan!
 Everyone ready to WALK!  The walk began at OPHS
 Jocelyn taking photos in the helicopter of the overwhelming size of this event
 Mrs. Fonstad's class...leading the pack
 Our son's class...'Hi Grade 1's'
Our niece Kyra waving
 Heather & Regan...some of Megan's BFFs




The walk finished at Megan's house...where the helicopter landed and picked her up for a ride.  Her husband James told me 'it made her day'...what a rush!  You can see awesome coverage of the event on Jason's blog, he did an amazing job of capturing it.
It was amazing to see the support of the students, teachers and community members for this cause...Megan, you deserve it!
