Miami Country Day School Walk for Cancer - Miami Shores, FL

By
Real Estate Agent with Majestic Properties 3061802

The goal for this year's Miami Country Day School Walk for Cancer  was $50,000.  As of the preliminary tally, Miami Country Day School had raised over

$112,000!!! 

Can we say wow!  I was helping The Heidi Hewes Woman's Cancer Association with the counting of the money and we all had goose bumps!

Those kids worked so hard and everyone should be so proud!  You could hear the kids cheering in the loud-speaker "Do it for Harry!"  The walk this year is dedicated to Harry Greenberg, a senior at MCDS who has recently lost his leg to cancer.

To think that all that money will go towards cancer research and to the efforts of finding the cure.  My hat goes off to everyone involved.

CONGRATULATIONS MIAMI COUNTRY DAY!!

Here you can see the students hard at work filling out sponsor sheets and collecting money.

The Head of Miami Country Day, Dr. John Davies, promised to shave his head if the students met their $50,000 goal.

Not only did they meet their goal, but they more than doubled it!

CONGRATULATIONS ONCE AGAIN MIAMI COUNTRY DAY!

Desiree- we really had goosebumps every-time we would re-tally the amounts.....unbelievable event and proud to have been there to experience it.

George - as long as we keep trying to find a cure for this horrible disease that affects so many of us - I will certainly keep doing my part.

Lisa - the photo of Harry on the back of the pick up truck with the huge smile will remain engraved in my memories forever - we have a lot to learn from that young man.

Cyndee - thank you!  pretty amazing, huh?  Those kids worked super hard.

Sticky Nicky - there is power in numbers, no doubt about it.  To think the same walk a few years ago started out with a little over $1,000 in contributions and they collected over $112,000 is truly commendable.

Bob - that's a great idea to recruit schools for Relay for Life.  This one is a little different because this school started the Cancer Walk all on their own a few years ago.  This is one single school with outstanding effort and results and they picked our local cancer association (Heidi Hewes Chapter of the WCA of the University of Miami) to donate the funds to.....ultimately it all goes to the same place.

We just stopped by to visit after voting on your Posh'd thing for you. Congrats on getting there too. Think somehow BB led the way.

An impressive number above for fund raising for a local event like that.
