We all woke bright and early Saturday morning to show our support for Lucy and all who are affected by mitochondrial disease!

We are so overwhelmed…in a good way…by all of the love, support, care, concern, thoughts, and prayers that are given to our family!  It means the world to us to know that so many care!

It is for the Love of Lucy, and the many others affected by mitochondrial disease, that we came together to raise awareness and funds for mitochondrial disease!


Our team shirts were simply…adorable. 


Many, many thanks to our dear friend Kimberly for designing our team logo “For the Love of Lucy”.


Friends young and old gathered to walk.


Honestly, I think these girls could have walked a marathon…

…they were so happy to walk together!

We pushed Lucy in her wheelchair…

While others pushed strollers…


Some took turns pulling wagons…


While a very special brother took turns pushing Lucy’s wheelchair so that Mommy could snap a few pictures for posterity sake…


Megan offered piggy back rides to Sophie, as long as the ride wasn’t too long!


Others found the view from atop of their daddy or mommy’s shoulders to be the best!


Some pulled more than their fair share of the weight for the walk…


  While other’s went along for the ride.


A few scootered…


While some were content to just sit and take in the view…


…of the Philadelphia skyline.


Perhaps one more could have used a ride…

In the end all of the hard work and planning that went into organizing an event of this magnitude paid off…

…the First Annual DelVal Energy for Life Walkathon had over 300 walkers and raised over $30,000 for mitochondrial disease research!! 

We look forward to doing it again next year for the love of Lucy and the many others who are affected my mitochondrial disease!

Please continue to support the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation in the efforts to help find a cure!
