After work Friday, my daughter and I will be heading out to spend the weekend volunteering through Soldiers Angels to help out at the
2010 World T.E.A.M. Sports Face of America Bike Ride
This will be our 4th year attending this event as volunteers, and I really don't have the words to describe what an amazing and inspiring event this is.
Our involvement has increased over the years, precisely because this is such a wonderful event to be a part of, we first drove north in 2007 to spend just a few hours volunteering on a Saturday. In 2008 , we were able to spend the entire day volunteering on the Saturday. In 2009 , we were out early Saturday to help at the beginning, and then my daughter spent the rest of her Saturday helping along the way while I attended 2009's Milblog conference.....on Sunday last year for the first time, we were able to continue along volunteering on the 2nd leg of the bike ride, which ends in Gettysburg,PA.
This year, we head out to devote our weekend to cheering along riders, hanging banners that folks have sent from all over the country to encourage and cheer on the riders......and I'm sure, despite the fact that the weather is calling for some possible showers, that it will be another inspiring and amazing weekend to volunteer!!
