An Army came to town yesterday, marching for a good cause, and letting everyone along the way know who we were!
Sunday was the Lowell General Hospital Cancer Walk, an annual outing for the family, including all of our E Streeter extended family. The walk raised nearly one million dollars!
This year, though, was a special outing, as we walked and ran in honor of Jack's sister Annie, who's currently undergoing treatment down at Brighma and Women's Hospital in Boston, gearing up for a bone marrow transplant this week. That's her in the above pic, at least year's Jimmy Fund Cancer Walk in Boston, another outing folks undertake to help wage a fight against cancer.
On Sunday, it took an Army - Annie's Army - to wage the war on cancer, and we were only too happy to do it.
Because we never miss an opportunity to take pics with furry animals

Since it was for such a great cause, even Carlos was able to put his Baggo scars aside in the face of running with his undefeated arch-nemesis from the Baggo courts.
Luckily for Barry, he's always got friends there to hold him up during those long runs
ANNIE'S ARMY COMING THROUGH - that was Barry's mantra as we wound through the hundreds of out-of-state rowers on the banks of the Merrimack River there for a crew regatta. They made a hole for us to pass, probably just out of base fear.
Speaking of crew, here's our Crew, boats and all.
Coming into the home stretch, Carlos definitely has the edge over his 5K rival, 21:07.
Lest ye think running was the only exercise on the menu this day, I say thee nay!
Here's my two favoritest ladies in the whole wide world, and two of Annie's biggest and loudest supporters, getting ready for their 6.2 mile walk!
Them, and about 3,000 other walkers
Hand in hand, the walking buds tick off their first mile
The walk still gets the thumbs up. Heather, obviously, never stops smiling out there.
Proud as can be of my two girls
