Walk for Wishes 2017…

We did it again!  As the 19th Annual Walk For Wishes ® approached, fellow Coreteker Sarah Roland (a Walk veteran since 2011) assembled set up her annual “Sarah’s Dream Team” and put out the call for participation, as she has done every year since 2013.  And again this year, fellow Walk veterans Avi Moskovitz (since 2016) and I (since 2013) got our families involved and headed along to the Detroit Zoo and joined in the effort.

We are proud to have been a small — but important — part of the more than $500,000 and counting because of the efforts of more than 6,500 walkers combined!  It was a really great crowd, and there were tons of interesting things to do and see along the way (it’s the Detroit Zoo, after all), supported by care and food volunteers along the way.   And given some threatening weather, we were amazed that we also managed to get the whole day in with no rain, and just a bit of cold.  That’s 5 years in a row of good walking weather; someone must be watching out for us…

We are truly thankful to the folks at Coretek who donated so generously to us and our team, both individually and as a company, raising over $1400 with us by walk time.  We hope you are as moved as we are by the work that is done by the organization and the good that it brings to those that — in many cases — don’t have a whole lot of good in their lives at the moment the wish fulfillment is granted to them.  For instance, here’s the moment that Wish kid Emily discovered at the Walk that she was heading to Walt Disney World® Resort in about a month!

And did I mention that you can still donate to our team!?!?  Just click here go to Sarah’s Dream Team page and follow the process to donate to the team or any of us individually.

Oh, and by the way… we decided that we are on a mission to get more members of our team for 2018, so you may as well just plan to join now…  😉

See you then!
