22 for Tutu
This page is dedicated to our Mother Judi "TuTu" Curtin.
In her memory each March we will hold the "22 for Tutu" Memorial Walk or Run.
For the month of March we ask that you complete a total of 22k in her memory and donate $22 to the American Cancer Society.
To collect the 22, you can walk, run, use the whole month, do it all in one day, or complete it on TuTus Birthday March 31st.
We thank you for being a part of remembering Tutu, her never-give-up spirit will live on through our goal of 22 for TuTu growing each year.
Always remember sometimes Tutu would tell us
"Sometimes you just need to push yourself!"

When I am gone, release me let me go
I have so many things to see and do.
You must not tie yourself to me with tears
Be happy that we had so many years. I gave you love,
you can only guess, how much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love each have shown,
but now it is time I traveled alone.
So grieve awhile for me if grieve you must,
then let your grief be comforted by trust
It is only for a while that we must part
so bless those memories within your heart.
I will not be far away, for life goes on.
so if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you cannot see or touch me, I will be near
And if you listen with your heart, you will hear
All of my love around you, soft and clear.
Then when you must come this way alone,
I will greet you with a smile and “Welcome Home”
