Night Walk

"We Walk in The Dark,
So They Won't Have To"

Well, once again it is time to take a nice walk in the woods. I want to take You back a month or two, to June 2007 and You know that The beginning of June in The Chicagoland Area would not be complete if not for The Lions of Illinois Foundation's 3rd Annual Night Walk. It is has been My pleasure to cover this all 3 Years. On Sunday June 3, 2007, Lion Club members and families and friends from Lions District 1J and throughout the state of Illinois gathered at The Danada House & Equestrian Center in Wheaton, Illinois to walk 3 Miles in the dark and carry flashlights. We walk in the dark... so they won't have to". TM is the event officially trademarked slogan. This walk was designed to simulate what a blind person faces everyday day and night. The event was founded and chaired by Darien Lion Ray Kruyskinski and put on by The Lions of Illinois Foundation. The lions of Illinois Foundation serves as the chartable arm for The Illinois Lions Club, running several events including this one and of course Candy Day. There was some fun new activities such as walking as a blind person would and beep baseball. Participants this Year as well as the last two years had a chance to make their presence known by stamping a footprint and signing a banner. Of course plenty of refreshments were available to walkers provided by PepsiCo, featuring Gatorade products and of course some CD's were played at the end of the walk.

As always there was two trails, a gold trail and a purple trail. Each participant was given either a purple or gold mini-flashlight and that told them what path they are taking. This Year's footage, that You are currently seeing came from The Purple Trail, but don't fret Gold Trail lovers, We be filming on the Gold Trail, next Year. We alternate between the purple and gold trails from Year to Year.
