This past weekend I had the honor of walking with a team of 14 people from EXAIR in the Saint Jude Give Thanks. Walk. This walk went on across the nation in 90 cities. This was all to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. As a whole EXAIR donated $455 to the St. Jude Foundation to help the fight against cancer. My family and I had the joy of riding in the elevator from the parking garage with a survivor who St. Jude helped. He had been diagnosed when he was 12 and is now 24, he wasn’t the only survivor there either.
The walk started out from a local mall, Newport on the Levee, and then crossed the Ohio River using the Purple People Bridge, then up through Lytle Park along the river. Finally we crossed the bridge again and ended right back where we started. The total raised for the St. Jude Give thanks. Walk was $35,439.04. That’s an impressive amount raised while enjoying our families and good company, and supporting a great cause.
Yet another amazing reason to be part of the EXAIR team. Thanks for supporting us.
