The Board of From Our Hearts would like to say thank you for everyone’s support at the annual Breast Fest Walk held on March 10th. Although we only did the walk this year we had 93 new walkers. And, we are excited about our more than 20 new members and are already planning for a full day of music and fun for 2019!
A big thanks goes out to the St James City Civic Association for the delicious breakfast that I can assure you was not low calorie! The fire department was there giving out water and doing blood pressure checks and we had a visit from the Pink Heals fire truck. Pink Heals’ mission is about supporting all illnesses and needs within a community by keeping fundraising in that community. That is exactly what From Our Hearts is about: raising funds to support qualifying residents of the greater Pine Island area with breast cancer screening and treatment.
We are a small organization with a dedicated board, including Betsy Haesemeyer and Sharon Kubik as advisors. Sharon’s technical skills and guidance keep our website and Facebook page up to date. She always has suggestions for improvement. Betsy’s vision and ideas have been inspirational to the board. We are very fortunate to have both of their support.
Lastly, Breast Fest would not take place without all the volunteers who come out to help us set up, run the event and help take it all down. Many of these volunteers have been helping us for years! There are too many of you to name but please know we are sending a huge heartfelt thank you, From Our Hearts to yours.
