where I was thankful because I could blame the rain for the drops on my face. Yes, my eyes teared when Melissa Agne told me that Marty Campbell had died in the spring from lymphoma.

To Rochester, where the heavy downpour stopped after 7 a.m. and by 8 it was described as “puffy-cloud sunny.” Here’s a link to a Rochester Democrat and Chronicle article about their walk.
Cancer touches so many of us. In the coming weeks, I hope to bring you more of the stories behind some of these pictures. And bring you more pictures too! Remember there are walks this Sunday in Albion, Corning, Jamestown. On Sunday Oct. 21 Albany, Port Jervis, Central Valley, Utica and sites across New York City host walks. North Country hosts the last Strides walk Oct. 28 in Queensbury. You can always send in images you take to firstname.lastname@example.org to add to our slideshows.
