Last year we came home from St Jude/Florida right before this event took place. As a result, we didn't have the time (or energy) to organize a team for the walk. This year however, we are all about it! Team Avery will be represented at this fantastic cause made to bring awareness and funding to find a cure for Brain Cancer. This organization has been in business for 9 years and last year here in KC had a huge turnout of roughly 4500 people!
We'd like to add our support by participating in the walk and showing our TEAM AVERY spirit. If you'd like to join us, you can register as a walker online and then choose to join the Team Avery team on the 2nd page of the registration. If you can't be with us physically, we've set a small goal for our fundraising and you can show your support that way! For us this is really about awareness...funding today for the TaTas and Prostate Cancer are amazing...we'd like to see the same kind of research efforts and awareness be brought to not only Childrens Cancer, but more specifically the Brain Cancer that has made our lives a rollercoaster these last 19 months.
The walk is on Sunday, August 28th, 2011 at 8 am in Corporate Woods - Overland Park. If you haven't anything else to do, throw on those Team Avery T-shirts and join us for the morning...once again walking behind our little fighter as she leads the way...ok it might be in a wagon for a majority of the time...
