We hope to have our biggest team yet this year. This event is incredibly family friendly with events for children as young as 2 (though we strap on an infant for the walk nearly every year) and walkers/runners of ALL ages. Each year we have so much fun and love meeting new people. I strongly encourage you to invite your own family and friends to join us as well! If you are unable to be there but would like to support us you can visit our team website (link above) to make a donation – every dollar is appreciated more than you know. Well wishes, happy thoughts and prayers are also all appreciated 🙂
If you have questions or trouble with the site, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you from all of us for your time, generosity and consideration as we support a cause near and dear to our hearts.
Warmly,
The Searfoorce Family

June 4 – Central Park Challenge – join The Foorce!

This is one of my favorite things coming up. Last year was the first year we tried something like this, and being 6 months pregnant with a toddler and a disabled child in tow I was a little nervous. I am so glad we did it – we had an awesome team and the whole day was really fun. Some of us did the run (NOT me) and another group of us did the walk, which started shortly afterward. There was also a child area with races, games, and face painting, and lots of free giveaways. Seeing so many people gather for the same cause was truly touching and motivating.

This year we are hoping to have an even bigger team – it looks like at least 15 of us so far. The event is open to ALL ages – my 6 month old, 2 yr old and 10 yr old will all be joining us in the walk. I hope you will consider walking or running with us – it’s exercise while supporting a truly worthy cause, a great way to start off any Saturday. Here is our team page – http://support.yai.org/site/TR/Events/CPC2011?team_id=14203&pg=team&fr_id=1090 – scroll down until you see the list of team members and click Join Team to join us. The more the merrier! Or, if you can’t be there but would like to support or efforts, there is a Support The Foorce button too. Any donation, even $1, makes a difference toward our goal!
