A few weeks ago I was asked if I’d be willing to donate some time to photograph the Give Thanks fundraising walk for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Of course I said yes.

Over 65 communities across the country come together on the same day to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and our local walk took place at the Urban Forestry Center. St. Jude is a hospital where children with cancer come for the best treatment and where no family is ever turned away, for any reason, especially not cost. Even with an operating cost of $2 million a day, St. Jude never sends bills to those who seek treatment there.

Their funding comes primarily from individual donations, which makes days like the Give Thanks Walk that much more important. According to my friends at St. Jude over 300 people registered for the Portsmouth walk! Here are some of the moments I captured…
