A Walk

A couple weekends ago, Chris, Carver and I walked to raise money for CareNet to buy ultrasound machines for their facilities. These machines are expensive and 96% of women that see their unborn baby will chose life (over abortion). We felt that this was an EXCELLENT cause and wanted to support! It was a beautiful day and we had a lot of fun. We'll definitely do it again next year. :)

900 champions took part in our 2011 flagship event.

413 walkers.
173 kids 10 & under.
117 volunteers.
113 bikers.
84 runners.

$67,725 raised (so far).

1 mission: illuminate hope for pregnant women in crisis.
1 machine: delivered to Angelorum Next Step in Lynwood.
3 more machines scheduled for delivery OCT-DEC.

1 machine will see ~ 200 ultrasounds per year.
1 machine will see ~ 2000+ ultrasounds over its lifespan.
1 machine + 1 beneficiary = 1,950 choices for life.

How awesome is that?!?!


  1. Good for you Tana (and Carver)! Did you know that I volunteer at the Care Net here in town?
