Running With Angels

I received this email earlier today.

Dear Friends,

Pam Hansen, who is the author of the book, Running with Angels is co-sponsoring a 5K Run/Walk on May 16, 2009 along with the help of Intermountain – Utah Valley Regional Medical Center. It is at 8:00 AM at Thanksgiving Point, in Lehi. This year, she has designated that all of the proceeds of the race are to go to Angel Watch to support our program in the Utah South area, with any special donations going to our statewide program! We are so grateful for her kind generosity!

As the statewide Angel Watch program is at risk for any further funding next year as we are almost entirely funded by donations, we would like to encourage you and your families and friends to register for this walk/run and participate on May 16th as you can, so that future potential Angel Watch families can receive support as they have in the past.

The link to the race/walk information and the registration form is attached! Thanks for your support and ….See you at the race!

Love you!

Carolyn Kasteler, RN
Director of Angel Watch

PS – For those of you who are not able to attend the race but would like to make a donation to Angel Watch, please go to www.mckay-deefoundation.org to make an on-line donation! Thanks in advance for any support you can give us!! We hope to be here to support any families in the future who may have these needs.

I fully intend to participate and run in this race. For those of you who may not remember, Angel Watch was the program that got in touch with us after we received Emma's diagnosis and they came and visited us twice in our home before her delivery and once afterwards. They helped us talk things out and really discover how we were feeling. They also helped us out with our birth plan and funeral arrangements. They were there for us with as much or as little as we needed.

I invite all in the area to come and join our family in this event. Online information can be found here: http://runningwithangels.com/. I also have a registration form that I can email you and you can send in if you don't want to do it online. Prices go up after May 2nd, so register today!

Let's see...am I forgetting anything else? If I am, just let me know. And I hope lots of you will be able to participate with us!

I think that is wonderful! I plan on fully participating in the March of Dimes walk in our area next year (the one this year is too close to the time of my delivery). There are so many wonderful programs and organizations that benefit from things like this! Good luck!
