When an Idea Becomes a Reality: Live*Love*Hear

Design created by Rachel Chaikof
Karen Feeser posted the following comment on the Pediatric Cochlear Implant Circle on October 1, 2007, right in the middle of our CI Awareness Campaign Discussions:

I was thinking, we have all of these walks, runs, fundraiser ideas
to raise awareness to breast cancer, leukemia, autism, muscular dystrophy....etc...why can we not have something started or maybe
there already is and I am oblivious to it a walk or run for cochlear
implant awareness.

One year and five days later, Karen left this comment:
Well...I don't even know where to begin with telling you how amazing yesterday was. The 5k event could not have turned out any better than it did...well i am sure it could, but I tell you what, it surpassed my wildest expectations. We had 118 people turn out for the walk and
the run. Awards were given to various age groups and top overall and 2nd overall. It was the most amazing day I could have ever hoped for. I am beyond excited for this event to take place next year. I have learned a few tricks and will be even more prepared to kick some butt next year.

Thanks again to all those who supported me, cheered me on and just helped me turn the light on to organize this event. The Cochlear Implant Awareness Foundation will receive close to $1100 from this event and it was all thanks to those who were there for the cause and those who just love to run or walk. Thank you again- HUGS!!!




And I am SO happy for you!
