Hi all, sorry it has been so long since my last update! I am looking forward to my appearance at the Kansas City Walk Now For Autism Speaks event at the Kansas Speedway. It is this Saturday, October 16th and the walk starts at noon. I will be there early to help with registration. You can still register or donate at www.WalkNowForAutismSpeaks.org/kansascity. I worked with this organization this past summer at an event and they are doing great things to raise awareness about autism and fundraise for a cure! Families with strollers and wagons are welcome to participate in this 2 mile walk.
On Saturday October 23rd I will be at Church of the Resurrection's Sacred Steps 5k Run/Walk helping with late registration and presenting awards. This annual event raises funds for widows, children and orphans living in poverty in Africa. Register or donate at www.cor.org/missions/beyondkansascity/sacred-steps-5krunwalk.
On a personal note, I am looking forward to shopping for a cause at the Junior League of Kansas City's annual Holiday Mart on October 21st. This event raises money for local children's charities and is one I look forward to every year! On October 23rd, I look forward to celebrating my friend Hailey Johnson's remission from leukemia with a costume party! Hailey was the 2010 LLS Girl of the Year. It has been a joy getting to know her and her family this past year!
