We has many supporters and walkers during last year's walk, BUT this year our guest of honor will be joining us! Owen was still in the hospital during the walk last year, but he is ready to
We will be creating a team (Team Knowin Owen) and linking it to the blog and facebook soon. You can click on the link and join our team, and of course donate any amount of money you feel led to give. Walkers are encouraged to raise at least $25 (you get a free t-shirt if you do!). It does not cost anything to join the walk, but as I said, you are encouraged to get at least $25. The walk has two courses: a 1 mile track and a 3 mile track. We will have to gauge Owen's mood as to which trial he chooses. :)
The walk begins at 10am on October 15 at Coney Island in Cincinnati. There is carnival for kids that opens at 8am, as well at check in beginning then too. They will have goody bags for kids, face painting, rides, and pumpkin decorating. There is a complimentary lunch provided for all registered walkers and it's over by 1pm!
We are planning to have new Team Owen shirts this year and will soon be taking orders. We are going to try and find a more organized way for taking orders and making sure you get them, as we still have several shirts left over from last year! Our t-shirt orders will need to be completed by the 3rd week of September to ensure they will be ready for the walk!
We hope you will consider joining us, or donating to our team. We cannot tell you how wonderful CCHMC has been not only in Owen's care, but in the comfort they have provided our family during his 100 day stay and the love we feel at each and every visit! Please consider donating to this wonderful hospital. Visit
to donate or join our team. If you live in Owensboro, we will be visiting home soon and I can get it from you there, or just give it to someone in our family and they will make sure we get it!
**Upcoming Surgery Note**
Owen's bladder surgery has now been scheduled for Monday, October 24. Please keep him in your prayers and begin praying now for his surgeons. Pray that the Lord will guide their hands and infuse them with wisdom. Pray that Owen's body is preparing itself for surgery and he will be strong and have a quick recovery!
