Walk to End Alzheimer's, Lion's Club, and Ruby's Pantry

I know it's been almost three weeks since the Walk to End Alzheimer's, but this blog is better late than never right? Life has gotten a bit hectic, so I apologize for how late this is.

On Saturday, September 22nd, the fourth annual Walk to End Alzheimer's took place at the Brainerd Arboretum! My family and I have been involved with this Walk since the beginning and I can tell you that it is one of the most rewarding things I do each year. This year, I was proud to have raised over $1,500 this year, bringing my total money raised to $22,000 in the past four years, something I'm extremely proud of.

The Walk started bright and early Saturday morning, and was a bit chilly. We managed to stay warm by bundling up and sipping on apple cider :) I love fall!

I want to thank my team, Team Wachholz 2012 - you all are awesome for coming out! You know who you are and I hope that you know how grateful I am for your support. Thanks to those who helped me reach my goal - I certainly couldn't have done it without you!!

This Monday night, I attend the Breezy Point/Pequot Lake's Lion's Club meeting to ask for a scholarship donation for the Miss Minnesota's Outstanding Teen program. My goal is to raise $10,000 by March that will only be used for scholarship funds. If you, your business, your neighbor, or anyone is willing to donate, please contact me at! Any donation is tax deductible. Thanks!

Today, once again, I  attend Ruby's Pantry in Brainerd - my once-a-month appearance! Today was fun because this was the largest group of people they've had in a long time and I was able to attend with my Mom and two pageant friends. Plus I just love Ruby's so I knew it was going to be a fun day :)

Tomorrow I have my grad pictures (Holy cow - I'm old!!). I'm looking forward to them :)
