Hello everyone and thank you for visiting my page. I can't believe that we are entering into our 2018 walk! I feel like it was yesterday when we were all huddled under the pavilion during the storm at last year's walk! I am hoping for an even more successful and even better event this year!
I AM SO EXCITED to let you all know that we really have some cool treats in store for you guys this year! Even though it's a day full of fun filled activities with friends and family, we can't forget the real reason why we walk. Over the years since the walk first started for Westchester/Rockland in 2006, we have raised thousands of dollars for individuals with hearing loss. With the money that we raised, we have been able to offer college scholarships, looping systems, and hearing devices for individuals with hearing loss. (THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR HARD WORK! WITHOUT YOU THIS WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE!)
About 5 years ago, I never knew that the walk existed until a patient told me about it. Since then, I have been walking with Team CRM raising funds for this great organization and have also volunteered my time on the walk committee to ensure success of the event along with my fellow committee friends. My heart broke about 3 years ago when we found out that our walk would possibly be cancelled because we had no one to chair the event, and our participants and funds were starting to slowly decline :( I COULD NOT LET THIS HAPPEN! I stepped up to the plate with my friends on the walk committee to take the wheel!
I ask you to please consider making a donation to our team/ organization to keep the walk for Westchester/Rockland alive, and to continue increasing support and funds for those with hearing loss.
I can't wait to see you all at FDR Park on Saturday, May 12!
