Walkathon Thank You

Nov 2, 2017 To All HSA Members, I wanted to reach out and give everyone involved with the Walkathon a huge THANK YOU. First to Judy, for once again coordinating the project, bringing everything together and driving another successful Walkathon. To the volunteers who showed up to support our children’s efforts, it couldn’t have been done without you. To our staff, who always go above and beyond in helping our children in every way possible. To all our family and friends, thank you so much for the generous donations and support of our children; you always make this a special day. Last but not least, to the children, an inspiration to all of us. Around and around they go, they wouldn’t stop if we didn’t make them!!! Thank you boys and girls for all the laps; and creating such a wonderful atmosphere. It is beautiful to see you all having so much fun, happily raising money for the school. I wish I had that much energy!!! Look forward to seeing you all at Family Fun Night, Matthew Dunn HSA President
