LET'S START A MICHIGAN WALK!


LET'S START A MICHIGAN WALK!

Postby adamsmom » Mon Nov 30, 2009 12:21 am

Hello: My name is Jamie Schmidt and I am working with the National Walk Coordinator, Becky Sloan, this year to ensure succesful walks across the country.

I would love to help coordinate a local (Michiagn) walk. My husband and I did do a "Family and Friends Walk" in June of last year and raised just over $1000. But I know if we combine our powers, our areas and our determination we can do amazing things.

I don't think we have a very organzied group of Michigan survivors and families and I would love to start one.

If you are reading this and want to help, or just share ideas, let me know!

Thanks

Jamie Schmidt

Just curious where in Michigan are you? Sorry about your loss. My husband and i are going through the loss of our little one as well. The hospital i delivered him at does a lot for the parents and family of little ones who do not make it. If you just need someone to talk with feel free to e-mail back. Kristin

I too am sorry to hear about your loss. We live near Flint, but I would love to start a walk anywhere from Lansing to Detroit area or elsewhere.

Incidently, what hospital were you at? We started out with a poor hospital choice (and doctor choice) but ended up at ****** which was a life saver!

Hello! Not sure if this forum is still going on since the last post was in December 2009, but I wanted to mention that I'd be interested in a 2010 Michigan walk. I'm in the Ann Arbor area.

Yay to those interested in a Michigan Walk. We did get one going in the metro Detroit area.

The coordinator's name is Shannon Donohgue and her email address is
gcpom02@yahoo.com. Drop her a note and let her know you are willing to help.

I am so excited! Thanks all!
