The Hope, Steps & A Cure Walk is coming this Sunday. The route will take us through downtown Bethesda, where we're sure to draw lots of attention, then along the historic Capital Crescent Trail to the turn-around point.

WALK in Bethesda

This was a great walk to participate in. It was wonderful, uplifting, and I was thrilled to be a part of it. Hope to see some pics at some point.
