The Valerie Fund Walk & 5K is one of our favorite days of the year. It's a magical day where our kids and families get to come together in the spirit of supporting one another as their families and friends cheer them on. The 2022 Walk & 5K was held on September 17th so let's take a quick look back at the day.

 

During this beautiful September Saturday, families, friends and supporters banded together to celebrate the most important people in the park, our Valerie Fund patients, also known as Team Green! The love, friendship and excitement was palpable in the air and the beautiful autumn weather helped too. To make a great day even more special, September is Childhood Cancer and Sickle Cell Disease Awareness Month and celebrating our patients and their families during this important month is so incredibly impactful!
