The Night Before Walk

Tags: , , ,

by Randi Corey, HA Director of Special Events

‘Twas the night before Walk and all it entails
Walk Chairs all over were pacing and biting their nails.

Although the site was set up with care
they wished – and wondered
“Would the walkers be there?”

“And will the weather be sunny and bright?”
“Or, will the volunteers show late and give me a fright?”

“Will walkers galore appear before my eyes?”
They’ll be there with bells on – surely not a surprise!

Your hard work has paid off, so yes, they’ll be there
With kids, dogs and strollers – sneakers laced up with care.

We know there’ll be hundreds – a true record breaker
You may need dozens of extra pledge takers!

With leaders like Stacy, Greg, Jackie, Sherry and Lisa
Donations are flooding in via MasterCard and Visa!
We also have Tara, and Mia and the Jennifers (two!),
Great Walk Chairs all – dedicated and true!

While the Chairs give their sites one final tour,
HA staff is appreciative, confident and sure,
for with all that HA volunteers put up with and endure,
they’re all more than great and they’re driving the cure.

Best of luck to our five Walks this weekend and their Chairs!

    HELLO , i found this website not to long ago about a month or so,well we have a child who suffers from
    hydrocephalus and its complications were from san antonio ,we have recently registered to the website but are looking foward to the walk at landa park,my son has been wanting to let other people aware of of what he has he gets many people who ask him about his shunt and some people can be very rude at times so now he wants others to know about hydrocephalus ,we want to make people aware of this and how it affects their daily life ,we have not meet anyone yet who has this or who has a child with this .We also are willing to share his story with the media and or paper .This is his way of coping and his way of trying to make people aware of what hydrocephalus is. THIS IS WHAT MY SON JONATHAN ALWAYS SAYS’ COME TAKE MY HAND AND JOIN ME .
