I don't even know how to begin to describe what a wonderful day we had yesterday. We feel that we couldn't have honored Emma in any better way on her birthday!

We had approx. 145 walkers, absolutely PERFECT weather, it just couldn't have been a nicer day! The only cost that we had to deduct from the proceeds was for the T-Shirts everything else was donated!

We have had a few phone calls this evening saying people had a few more donations for us. I will update with a final number later in the week but right now we have raised $3,500!!!!!!!

Thank you so much to everyone who helped us with the planning, came out and supported the walk and more importantly helped raise funds for the foundation and Awareness in our community!

WOW!! That's amazing! Congrats on the great walk, raising awareness, raising money for research, and most importantly for honoring Emma in such a great way. I have no doubt that Emma sent you the perfect weather.

Your dedication, time and persistence is greatly appreciated. Hosting an awareness walk is so fulfilling.

Just wanted to update everyone and more importantly THANK Chrissy and Ryan for their amazing work in raising awareness and funds through their "Walk for Emma". Certainly, Chrissy and Ryan are the best ones to share the outcome and true emotion of the day, but I am so excited about the most recent tally of
$5000 raised!

(also neat to know that some of the western PA members attended too).
