Pictured in the photo above is Ashley Papelbon, Shonda Schilling, and Kelly Pedroia...Dawn Timlin also rode. They rode in the Positive Spin for ALS in Wayland, Ma., one of many events that Timlin and Schilling, players and wives, participate in. Shonda and Curt donate so much time and energy in raising money and awareness for this horrible disease. Shonda recruited Dawn right after Curt was signed on by the Sox...and this year she recruited two of the younger and newer players' wives, Papelbon and Pedroia.
I knew very little about this disease 3 years ago...but after my first trip to Spring Training and attending a charity event, Springing For a Cure, that raised monies for ALS...that changed. Curt has appeared at each dinner...whether it was for the entire dinner or just a few minutes. For those who didn't know, Mike Timlin's mother was taken by this disease.
My adopted lil brother in North Carolina thinks that I am SO obsessed with Tek's asset....SO although I know my beloved ThighMaster Tek played awesome today...and the boys took the game back...the real Heroes today were these wives...out peddling their hearts out to raise monies for those less fortunate than themselves.
