JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes: Mall of America

JBird's Team raised several hundred dollars for The Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund Saturday at the Mall of America thanks to friends, family and colleagues. Thousands of walkers and celebrities packed the mall. Representative Michele Bachman was there (she appears in the lower right of the second photo) as was Amy Klobuchar, who spoke but failed to impress, the crowd talking over her speech after the first minute or so.

Locally-based sponsors included Target Corporation who served up flavored waters in mass quantities, as was CH Robinson, Medtronic, KARE11, Ryan Companies, The Minnesota Twins, and Lunds/Byerlys.

Hey, it's nor Sunday yet. Manipulation of timestamps! Yet another right-wing dirty trick!
