Last year's was a poignant walk. Little did we know that Ofelia de Leon, the mother of two of our employees, Dee Dee and Paul Manalang - all three of them walking happily along with us - would die less than three months later from breast cancer. That brought the seriousness of the walk home in a way we'd rather it did not.
For just the second time in our 30 year history we slowed down so we could attend Ofelia's funeral. The church was overflowing with her family and friends. Poignant and quite sad.
This year's walk will take place May 7 and is in memory of Ofelia.
