Seattle Police Department volunteers
A tremendous job
My team, Monster and Sea, participated in the 60-mile walk to help fund breast-cancer research this past weekend.
I cannot go another minute without telling everyone what a tremendous job the volunteers from Seattle Police Department did. They decorated their bikes and rode every mile beside the walkers, encouraging, praising and creating an atmosphere of fun, and all while keeping us safe.
It was amazing to watch them tackle the hills while talking and joking with us, which ultimately helped keep our minds off the length and steepness of each hill.
My daughter has battled two forms of cancer since December, and they took the time to show concern and compassion while continuing to help us move forward.
The Seattle Police Department should be proud to have these men and women on their team: three days and nights of volunteering in the sun, rain, wind and traffic with smiles and their faces and what could only be described as joy in their hearts.
