Walk for Wishes

Last weekend I was lucky enough to participate in the Walk for Wishes event organized at San Francisco’s East Bay. For those who aren’t familiar with this foundation, you can visit their Website at Make a Wish

Basically they concede a wish to those kids who, very sadly, suffer a serious illness. Last weekend it was a young boy who saw how an airforce pilot handed him an invitation letter to make his dream come true and be trained to be a pilot.

So far it’s been raised over 90K for this event which will help other six kids see their dream become real.

Organization of the event was sponsored by a number of companies based in San Ramon area, together with the help of Β their employees who raised money and were volunteering during the event.

The 5K walk was fun and everybody seemed to enjoy a warm, feeling-good morning. When people gather together for a good cause, positive energy builds up; just see the volunteer’s face in last picture.

Unfortunately there are many children out there still waiting to materialize their dream… You can help them achieve it and become a proud member of this big family. During this month of August you can still make a donation to SAP Team trough this link

“Hope rises and dreams flicker and die. Love plans for tomorrow and loneliness thinks of yesterday. Life is beautiful and living is pain. The sound of music floats dow a dark street.”– Hunter S. Thompson
