Spirit. Joy. Meaning.
Dear Friends,

This year is like no other. Our team has heard from patients who are juggling family and work, tiring of the isolation, or feeling more vulnerable about their health than usual.

We're assuring our patients we're here -- that our doors are open and we're ready to support them and provide the products they need and deserve.

Of course, funding is foremost on our minds, too; it's what makes our work possible. We have great news about this year's virtual Walk/Run fundraiser and look forward to you joining us September 26 or 27!

We're pulling out all the stops to retain our Walk/Run event's spirit, joy, and meaning plus add some fun new elements. With this in mind, we'll host a virtual kick off on Facebook Live featuring Elaine's Memorial Circle with traditional dove release. KTVU's Heather Holmes will join us, Shameem of XTRIM Bollywood will lead our warm up, and more.

With you by our side , we'll reach our $60,000 fundraising goal and together we'll provide HERS -- Hope, Empowerment, Renewal, and Support -- for patients in need.

With gratitude,


Tina Fernandez Steckler
Executive Director
