From Eileen: We are waiting to hear from the guys on the trail; we know they made it to the West Carry Pond Shelter near Flagstaff Lake in Maine this afternoon. Meanwhile, tonight was ALS Awareness night at the Red Sox game at Fenway Park. Our son Philip and I were honored to be there as part of the contingent from the ALS Therapy Development Institute of Cambridge, MA. Thank you to Carol Hamilton of ALSTDI for inviting us! Although Rick wasn’t there, he got a huge round of applause from the crowd during the introductions when the announcer told them that he is out hiking the Appalachian Trial for ALS. A special moment for us was when the Winchester High School Octets sang the national anthem. We want to thank the Red Sox organization and ALSTDI for giving them this opportunity, and Joel Buford for his support at the game.
