TEAM HERO - Expanded version

This is from an email we got from Mary, Janet's sister. They did the Buddy Walk in their home town of Binghamton NY! We sent them "TEAM HERO" shirts to wear. Here is their email!

Hi Linkert Family!

Here are photos from the Buddy Walk held here in Binghamton. It was a lovely rainy day, but at least the rain held off during the walk.

There was a band that played after the walk, lots of free food and games for the kids. We stayed for a bit to enjoy the fun!

Glad we heard about it and look forward to next yeAar!AA
