Update- AVM Awareness Walk

Hello friends and family!

Just wanted to update you all on my upcoming AVM awareness walk! There are at least 4 other people (families) from my Support Network that are absolutely going to make it to SF, and a few more that are still maybes. We hope to have a large group of AVM survivors, family, and friends to represent us in this walk. I'm super excited to meet everyone in person.

I know there are a some of you that have expressed interested in walking with me. All the details are on TAAF's website, but you can just go straight here to register and choose to join the team! With luck, it will be a nice sunny day in the city and we can all enjoy a quick 1 mile stroll with the Golden Gate as a backdrop. I would LOVE for you to walk with us!

If you want to stay the night in the city, TAAF has arranged for a room discount at Hotel Del Sol. Josh and I will be staying Saturday night and plan on having a big get together with my friends & family, and host our out of town AVM guests! We hope you will join us and make it an entire weekend of fun. To get the discount rate, call the hotel at 1.877.433.5765 and tell them you are with the TAAF Awareness Walk on May 3rd!

The team's fundraising efforts are paying off as well! We set our goal to raise $3000, and thanks mostly to our Team Leader Kim, we are already at $2570! Nearly there. How wonderful is that?!?!? If you are interested in donating you can visit my page or just to keep tabs on our overall team progress here.

As always, feel free to pass this email along to anyone you think would be interested in the Aneurysm & AVM Awareness Walk!
