Run/Walk for Aidan - 2008

Once again, Michelle Weertman, Beth Mueller, and their families organized and ran the annual Run/Walk for Aidan. It was a wonderful day!

You could tell by this year's t-shirt (See below.) that one of Aidan's current interests is dinosaurs. Check back in October to see how to purchase your own dinosaur shirt while raising money for Charley's Fund.


Editors note: My favorite story of the race is yet another "Aidan story."

Aidan was standing next to Mindy was talking to Robin Dixon, an ex-Newport runner as they were catching up on the past year. Aidan, who doesn't like to be excluded from conversations, interrupted. He said to Robin, "Excuse me, but what did you say your husband does?"
