Just a last minute reminder that we are just two days away from the 2011 South Florida Vision Walk. I thank all of you in advance for any and all participation that you are offering to The Katie Starr Team. You assistance in this will be funding the research that will one day end hereditary retinal blinding disorders and allow people to live a life with their vision intact. Our 6 year old daughter, Katie Starr, suffers from a disorder called Cone-Rod Dystrophy and faces a life in the dark unless a cure is found.
Just some last minute items to remember. The park we are walking in is at Sunrise Boulevard and the Intracoastal. It is a State Park and they are not waiving their entrance fee this year which thankfully is only $1.00.
There will be breakfast items such as bagels, breakfast bars and fruit. Coffee and Hot Chocolate will also be available. For lunch after the walk there will be pizza available. Feel free to bring your own lunch if Pizza isn’t your bag as well as a chair or blanket to picnic on. The day is shaping up to be a nice one and many of us will be picnicking after the walk.
The walk is mostly symbolic. You can walk all, part or none at all. The idea is to come out, raise awareness and raise the money for research. Please secure any and all donations that you can and bring them to registration. Please ask friends and family if they help with just a few dollars. It all makes a difference! Please make sure that you are registered under “The Katie Starr Team.” We are the number one team in South Florida and we are going to fully represent the day of the walk! I have Team T-Shirts for the first 100 adults and 25 children that come out that day. You can also pick up a Foundation T-Shirt at the walk for your collection! ;-)
There will be a bounce house and inflatable slide for the kids as well as cotton candy, snow cones, and a face painter. It will be a fun and rewarding day for all!
