Tesla Walks for Babies

Yesterday, Tess joined thousands of others in Erie to support the 2013 March for Babies.  Tess raised a few bucks herself and joined the Paws for Preemies team.


The 6.2 mile walk took place along Presque Isle.  Although it was a rainy day, we had a really great time.

Tess's friend Stella joined us, too!  This was a great experience for her; she's a skiddish dog, too, so it was really great practice to be around so many different people, dogs, and vehicles (those ambulances are scary!)

Tess turned a lot of heads in her purple tutu (purple is the March's color!), and made quite a few friends, including the Central Tech Cheerleading Squad that met us at the halfway point.

It was a long walk and we were all pretty beat by the end, but we did it!  Our team raised $2000 to support the cause, and the event raised over $280,000 to help babies begin healthy lives.
