I wanted to make sure that I post a little bit about the upcoming Heart Walk here in Aurora (Denver) that's happening exactly 1 month from today! Our family will be volunteering at the Heart Walk, so we'll be behind the scenes helping out this year, our very first year ever. But I've been so busy that I keep forgetting to ask for donations! Which is important to ask for. Here's the link to our family page, so go ahead and click on the picture:
I made our family goal $875 which is probably pretty high (hey we're new at this) but I also like to make my goals really high, so please? could you donate a few dollars, anything? The Rocky Mountain Congenital Heart Walk is free to register, too! Here's a little snippet from the event website:
|"Thank you for your interest in the Rocky Mountain Congenital Heart Walk, which will take place Saturday, August 25, 2012 at General's Park in Aurora. This year's walk will include a great route, food, and fun! This meaningful joint venture between the Adult Congenital Heart Association and The Children's Heart Foundation is designed to bring together the congenital heart disease community like never before. We hope that you will consider forming a team and recruiting your friends, family members, and co-workers to become a part of our walk. We look forward to working with you as we unite to fight congenital heart disease."|
We hope you help us support The Children's Heart Foundation and Adult Congenital Heart Association. We do this for Natalie and for all of the CHD survivors, angels, and families affected by congenital heart defects. Every little dollar and bit of support goes a very long way.
Due to the fact that we have only a month left for the heart walk, I will keep this blog going until the walk, so we can hopefully raise some money and awareness. I am so grateful for each one of you that stops by this blog and for every penny we can gather for donations. Thanks so much!
