Compared to last year, the weather was miserable. However, we didn't get completely soaked, and the wind didn't completely blow us all away, so in the end, it was a success.
The JDRF had a goal to raise just over $460,000.00 this year, and they were able to manage to raise $450,000.00 which is incredibly close.
Even though the weather was not ideal, the crowd turnout was still very impressive. Here are a few snippets from the day. Even included some of the celebrity donor George Canyon.
None of these shots would be possible without the assistance of my team of volunteer photographers.
Mark Laurie, Drew Gregory, Claudia Tecuceanu, and Crystal Sujata.
Once again, Sunley Photography is the official event photographer for the Calgary Telus Walk to Cure Diabetes. The Walk is a very FAMILY friendly event and is really intended for the kids to come out and have fun, it isnt a super-competitive race, so feel free to bring the babies and toddlers for an amazing time in Stanley Park.

I would love to see some familiar faces, and would love it even more if I knew that some of you were making donations to this wonderful organization.I support this organization because I believe no child should have to live with this illness, I have seen two family members live with type 2 diabetes, and I see that even as adults, they struggled at times with managing. I cannot imagine a child trying to cope and understand what is going on with their body.This is an illness that impacts the entire family.
So, come have fun, and at the same time, perhaps you can help out a worthy cause.
Wow! What a fantastic event! First time doing this event and I am so impressed. Huge turnout, fantastic weather and incredibly well organized. If you have kids, this is a great event to attend and be a part of.
