Dear Friends & Family,
I hope this email finds each of you healthy and happy! It is time again for Circle of Care's 10th annual Walk to Remember, and I am calling on you to help to support this wonderful program! On Saturday May 18th 2019, I will be participating in our 10th Annual Walk to Remember event. Celebrating life and remembering how precious it is.
My mom, AKA GG has been cancer free for the last 7 years!!!!! My dad has made a great recovery from his brain aneurysm almost 4 years ago. I am humbled having this gift of more time with them as I know many of the kids we help at Circle of Care don't have that privilege.
I will again be walking to remember the beautiful lives of two very special people who passed away in 2015 after long battles with cancer, Ron Thomson & Laura Warren. Always remembering Dar, Sean, & Timmy K., Uncle Buster, Grammy, Grampy, Mimi & Pere.
Our time here on this planet is extremely precious, and I am so lucky to have the wonderful support of friends and family and co-workers that give me purpose, and have helped me through, and to really enjoy and not take for granted our time together.
Of course I would be leaving out a huge bit of information if I did not let you know about where your donations will go! I am so privilidged to work for a program that makes sure that a child will be supported through their experience when their mom is diagnosed with cancer, or when their dad died unexpectedly. Not everyone has access to the strong support network of friends and family that I do, and Circle of Care helps to be that support to children and families in Oakland navigate their grief.
I am asking you to sponsor my Walk by making a donation today. Help me reach my goal of raising $3,000 for Circle of Care. Donations of 50.00 & 100.00 will make a huge impact, but no donation is too small, even 5.00 and 10.00 will make a difference for a grieving family and will help us to continue our programming.
If you are feeling really spunky, register for the Walk in honor or memory of your own special person and help us fundraise! It will be a fun and healing day, so come walk with me, get some good exercise, grub, and support an awesome program.
Thank you all for supporting me over the last 10 years....collectively raising almost 26K!! Thank you for supporting a program that is a huge part of my life, and for all the love and positive energy you put out into the world. Year after year, I am one lucky human being. Much Love,
