The ALS Ocean City, New Jersey walk was incredible! InnerRealm Designs raised $820 that will go to the Greater Philadelphia ALS Association. The ALS Association, Greater Philadelphia Chapterserves over 850 people with ALS and their families living in eastern Pennsylvania, central and southern New Jersey, and the state of Delaware. Although, we did not make our goal of $1000 we were so proud to have contributed such a large amount from a small design firm from New Jersey!
A huge thanks goes out to all our friends, family, and supporters that helped us place in the top third for fundraising!
We made the best out of the rainy weekend as well. We shopped the boardwalk’s off-season sales, played some indoor mini-golf at Congo Falls, ate “the big slice” at Three Brothers Pizza, and topped our food coma with copious amounts of THE BEST water ice ever….TLC’s Polish Water Ice.
The night of the walk we were having dinner at Primavera’s…while waiting for our food I looked out at the ocean as the sun was setting and noticed a HUGE rainbow that started in the ocean and ended over by the ferris wheel. It was one of the most beautiful rainbows I have ever seen! What a perfect ending to a very important day!
Saturday night was not as rainy as Friday….so we were able to walk the boards at night enjoying some rides and relaxing. As we were strolling by, there were two musicians playing acoustic guitar. They were playing real soft in the foggy shadows of the overhead pavilion. We decided to go sit on some benches facing the ocean and listen for a bit. The two guys were great…we told them how good they sounded….they seemed a bit shy and humble which was nice to see.
We look forward to the ALS Walk next year! Hoping to achieve our goal of $1000! But until then, we will relish in the positive energy that we felt from all the wonderful folks we met at this walk, and hopefully see all of them next year!
