The time has come once again…all of our hard work and fun preparations are nearly complete and it’s time to walk and celebrate! The SB Heart Walk is Saturday and for those of you who are able to join us, please scroll down for some important details! We are just $30 away from our personal fundraising goal so if you thought maybe you’d like to donate after reading our appeal a while back and haven’t done so, please follow this link to our personal page and help us reach our goal of $6000…Team Rudy has surpassed it’s goal of $7000.00 total! Well done everyone…another successful year. In the three years our family has participated in the Heart Walk, we (that’s the “we” that means “Rudy’s community”) have raised very close to $28,000.00 TOTAL!!!! Remarkable!
And so, as in years past, we will walk on Saturday in celebration of Rudy, in honor of loved ones affected by heart disease and stroke and in sweet memory of our heart buddies that have passed away since our journey with Rudy began…Katie, Angel, Logan, Josiah and Ethan. Their lives and the courage of their families are a daily reminder to me of the precious gift each day is!
On behalf of our family and the American Heart Association…Thank You!
Santa Barbara Heart Walk
Where? Fess Parker’s DoubleTree Resort (in the rotunda)
When? Saturday September 29, 2012
Time? 9am – Activities; 9:50am – Opening Ceremony; 10am – 5K Walk
The festivities in the rotunda will begin at 9am so please feel free to come early and take advantage of the fun booths, bounce house, etc.
The “Team Rudy” tent will be set up right across the street from the rotunda on Cabrillo (next to the crosswalk). We’re asking everyone to meet at the “Team Rudy” tent no later than 9:30am to get their Rudy Blue Balloon. We’ll walk over to the opening ceremony in the rotunda together at 9:45am. The walk will begin at 10am (the route is along Cabrillo to the pool, back down Cabrillo to Milpas and then a quick return to the resort). We’ll meet back at the “Team Rudy” tent after the walk (anytime after 11:15am) to relax, enjoy each other’s company and EAT CAKE! Ha 🙂
*Be sure to wear “Rudy” blue (a.k.a. turquoise or light blue)!! We’re looking forward to a wonderful morning…hope you can join us!
