What a sight it was at Balboa Park for the Making Strides against Breast Cancer Walk that took place on October 20. The turnout was spectacular with close to 9,000 walkers gathering early Sunday morning to show their support and love for those individuals dealing with breast cancer. Gillispie’s inspiration was prekindergarten teacher Jessi Epperson.
The foreground of the picture shows the School at its best–assembled are faculty and staff members (many of whom brought their children), as well as parents and students. Besides donations to the American Cancer Society given in her honor, over 50 adults and children accompanied Jessi and her family, who themselves led the way. In the background of the photo, you get the magnitude of many individuals getting behind a cause.
The day after the event, Jessi Epperson emailed this photo and asked that I convey to you a heartfelt and simple “Thank you!”
Head of School
