On September 20th, Gene and Kelly Andrasco and Andy and Vicky Platt hosted the 10th annual walk in Lake Zurich, Illinois to honor their daughters, Kiley (14) and Emma Rose (13).
The walk is even more meaningful as we were joined by additional AHC families from the Midwest, Sharon Ciccodicola from the foundation, and doctors Al George, Kenneth Silver, and Sho Yano.
With donations still rolling in, it is anticipated that the walk will break $30,000 again this year. That will mean, that over the last ten years of this walk, donations to the AHC Foundation will total over $300,000.
In addition to being a fundraiser for AHC research, the walk is a celebration of our AHC community. It is a time for having fun and enjoying everyone’s company.
A “selfie” contest was also held to help spread the word about AHC on social media. The picture on the left was our winner and they received a prize package of gift cards worth $75. Congrats Vaselopulos family!
It was a great day and we got to share our mission of ending AHC with a lot of wonderful people.
Be sure to join us next year as we begin our second decade of funding research to help the entire AHC community.
