Today was the Boston Scientific 5K Fun Run/Walk at Como Lake. It benefits Camp Odayin, a camp for children/teens with heart disease. Because the four of us participated (in the 44 degree rainy weather), four children are now able to attend camp for one week. Many of the "campers" are at the run each year and it's really touching to hear how excited they get when they talk about the camp. Camp Odayin allows the children to 'rest their worries' and have a week filled with total fun! One of the teenagers told us that her week at camp is the "best week of my life!". This is our second year doing the 5k and it's so worth it, even if it means getting up at 7:30 on a cold and rainy saturday.
