Yesterday I participated as a photographer at the 2016 St Jude Charity Event at Percy Warner Park in Nashville.
It was a beautiful day and even though I arrived at 7:30 am there were several people already there.
Here are some photos of participants. Costumes, embellishments, signs, special t-shirts all added to the upbeat nature of the day. We were all participating to help find a cure for childhood cancer.

Scroll down to see some amazing child created signs, which really affected me.
