Why We Walk!

I just wanted to take a moment again to express my gratitude to all those who supported the Menopausebarbee fundraising efforts for the Adult Congenital Heart Association’s  Seattle Walk for 1 in 100 in Seattle last Saturday.  I especially want to thank my sister and co-blogger Dana and our friend Betsy Bolte who walked alongside me and the 250 other heart warriors who attended this event.

Having the honor of being named the honorary chair of the event gave me the opportunity to speak to my fellow heart warriors and supporters from my heart. The core of my message was in these three words: Never Give Up!

We raised nearly $35,000 which will go towards advocacy, research and education for those of us who were born with a heart defect and their loved ones and the medical community that cares for them. The fundraising website will be open until July 15, 2019 so if you’d still like to donate you can do so here: secure.achaheart.org 

There are more walks coming up across the country over the next few months in  Minnesota, Boston, Nashville, San Diego, New York, Atlanta, Cincinnati, Denver, Arizona, Houston–you can even register for a virtual walk and raise funds if you’re interested in participating that way. 

Walking towards improving and extending the lives of millions! Helping these warriors not only to survive but to thrive! This is why we walk! We are on a mission!
