501st Legion | MidSouth Garrison

On Saturday April 26th members from the MidSouth Garrison attended the JDRF Walk for the Cure at the beautiful World’s Fair Park located in Knoxville Tennessee. This was the third year that the MidSouth Garrison has had a presence with the JDRF walk. The 501st Legion-MidSouth Garrison’s team beat there fund raising goal (with a goal of $500, and we raised $543.74!), for the second year in a row. :) Elizabeth, Steve (+ kids) & Andrew (+ family) did the actual walk on behalf of the 501st Legion-MidSouth Garrison. While Lord Vader, SL 51200 & TD 4267 awaited there arrival at the finish line bringing great joy to the other participants as well. For the third year, Legion member Dave Liew did the artwork for a patch that was used as incentive for fund raising, which was a big help. Over all it was a huge success, we beat the fund raising goal and we walked across the finish line AND now the world is closer to a cure to Juvenile Diabetes (Type 1).
