My wife (Shirley Ernst) started walking in the 3-day in 2009 in San Diego. In 2010 she joined a Boston team, the Pink Angels, and walked there. The Pink Angels had a support team, the Pink Angel Posse and I joined them. At the time I didn't think that I was doing very much good by cheering on the walkers. Since then, however, I have cheered as "Angel Bob" 14 times. I have come to realize that I can bring a little cheer to the walkers, especially those who are struggling. I often walk along with them, encouraging them, and helping them also realize that there is no shame in taking a shuttle if their struggle to walk is causing them too much pain. I have come to recogize many of the walkers each year and look forward to cheering them on.
