Walk-A-Thon for Tay Sachs Disease -

In Memory of Joanne Brodeur for Dylan

 

Jo-Anne Brodeur died of cancer in December 2003, and was a beloved friend to Dylanís family for many, many years.  On Jo-Anneís birthday, Sunday, June 12, 2005, friends and family organized the Jo-Anne Brodeur Memorial Walk  (view brochure) along the Cape Cod Canal in Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts. Fifty people joined her family that day and walked a mile together, shared stories, cherished memories of Jo-Anne and celebrated Jo-Anneís life with love and laughter! Jo-Anne loved children and would be so proud that her friends and family helped to fight against this incurable disease in her memory. The family is going to continue their efforts and make this walk an annual event.  Along with donations, Dylanís Cookbook, JustBelieve Bracelets, and candles were sold, and over $3,000 was donated in memory of Jo-Anne to DJís Foundation for Tay-Sachs Disease.  This year's walk was held on June 11, 2006.  For more images
