Arrivederci, Lily of Flitwick!

I would like to take this moment to honor a member of Gryffindor house, Lily of Flitwick.

Lily will be leaving for Italy tomorrow to compete in a Marathon to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Lily has raised close to $5000 for much needed cancer research.

On March 16Th Lily will run 26.2 miles in search for something much greater than the finish line; a cure.

Please join me in wishing Lily a safe flight, a swift race and a safe and triumphant return.

Lily never were truer words spoken then these

“You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart”

Good luck, Lily of Flitwick, Heir of Gryffindor!

Thank you Cass and everyone. It will be a very memorable trip and I'll have tons of pictures to share when I get back.

*Sigh* I'm looking forward to the cute Italian boys. They'll definitely be an incentive to finish.
