"..A-thon Thoughts "

They gathered for cancer ~ survivors as well,
Amassed to aid thousands in that insidious hell;
Many the people running and walking on
Going the distance in that run/walk-a-thon
They raised awareness and money for good cause
And were filled with our praise and applause
For we marshaled each corner as they went by
Under that sunny and cool September sky.

All completed their task, mother, father, child, teen, senior
And two wheelchair-bound ladies in a most happy demeanor;
Everyone accomplished the task to the finish line
Amid the cheers of peers for having done so fine.

Accolades to those behind the scenes
Those who exhausted all means it seems
To help others realize their dreams.

What a wonderful day to have been out and about
For on that day we all wanted to shout:
" See you next year same time same place "
To gather again and be blessed ~ by God's Grace.
