Walking is good for YOU! Lurie Children's Hospital Walk is this Weekend!

This Sunday, I will be participating in the Lurie Children's Hospital Move for the Kids Run/Walk. This is for an excellent cause, and our team (organized by my sister), is running and walking to honor a child who had his life end to early. Thus, this weekend, consider running and walking for the health of children in our community. Walking is a great form of exercise! It keeps us strong and healthy: keeping the muscles, tendons, and blood flow strong to our feet and legs. It helps us to maintain or lose weight. Cardiovascular activities such as walking, running, biking, swimming, and others, keep our heart strong and healthy! Plus, you can feel great by keeping yourself healthy and contributing to a great cause! Put on your supportive shoes, grab a bottle of water for hydration, and join us for some stretches before the event! Dr. Bender, 708-763-0580 Team Josué Our team was created in honor of a wonderful young man and his family. Josué and his family faced his diagnosis and treatment with love, courage, strength and faith. They have all been an inspiration to many. While Josué's physical time here was short, his legacy will continue to shine in the hearts of the lives he touched. On May 19, 2013, our team will participate in Move for the Kids 5k Run/Walk in honor of Josué and his family. Help us reach our goal to raise $1,000 for the patients and families at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago. The hospital relies on philanthropic support to help heal and save more kids' lives. I hope you will support our efforts by making a gift today. Any amount will make a difference! All donations are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged by Lurie Children's Foundation. With your help, more children can receive the best healthcare possible and the opportunity to reach their greatest potential. Thank you!
