Anna died this year. She was hit by a car as she and her family were crossing a street. Here is a note from my friend, Anna’s mom:
“One of Anna’s favorite things to do was go on walks. We live right by the railroad trail, so we walked it often. Anna loved being in the stroller or walking herself. She really enjoyed seeing all the things in the woods and would often point them out. During the summer we would walk up there and pick blackberries and thimbleberries. Part of the reason I was crossing the street when she was killed was because I wanted to walk with her to the park since she loved walking so much. I want to do the lake Padden walk in her memory to honor her and raise awareness about the horrific consequences of distracted, aggressive driving. I think that the beautiful scenery around Lake Padden lends itself to reflecting on the fragility of human life and the great power we have to take that life when we get behind the wheel of the car. Whether you’re walking or pushing a stroller, we want you to come walk with us.”
