Saturday’s Ignite Hope Walk was beyond successful! I am not sure yet of the total number that was brought in for PCH, but I do know that our “Stronger Than Cancer” team brought in just over $6800! We are happy to say that we were the top team and we are thrilled about it! Thank you for taking the time to walk with us or to donate. We have some pretty amazing people who have stood behind our mission and we can’t thank you enough. Nikki was a great team captain and did an amazing job putting this all together.
When we arrived at the hospital, the emotions were a bit overwhelming. We walked up as they were paying Silent Night and you could see all the little heroes inside waving their lights down to us. Since we were at the front of the walk, we were able to see over 1,000 people with their lights file in. This year was the first time the walk was put on and I hope it continues for years to come.
Nikki and I are headed back to PCH to present the check with the rest of the Children’s Fight for Life committee to the center for cancer and blood disorders. How amazing that the event brought in $100,000 this year! I really look forward to giving them that money tonight!!
Now that the walk is over, we are starting to plan our event for March, Comedians for a Cure! I am really excited about this year! Last year was our first year and you always learn something new each time you do an event so I think that this year is going to be much larger than last. As we get in new details, we will release them to you! As of now, we are looking at Sunday, March 10th for the event…mark your calendars!!
Last note: I have been getting emails asking about shirts and if we still have them and yes we do! We have most sizes left as well as some long sleeves now! We will be selling the long sleeves for $25 (which are unisex and super comfortable!). If we don’t not have your size, we will order it in the next order we place! All you have to do is donate the appropriate amount for what you want and don’t forget to note the sizes! If you have any questions at all, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
