Pet BFFs Welcome!
Dear Friends (Human and Otherwise),

As you might have guessed from this image, since our Walk/Run is virtual this year, furry friends are WELCOME. Don't leave your pet BFF behind-- have them join you in supporting HERS patients!

For fun, we're giving away a pet-themed prize basket. Register your pet and they'll be automatically entered to win the basket valued at over $100!

Keep reading for more Walk/Run news and HERS updates, and, as always, we wish you well.

The Greatest Gift
This is one of the best quotes we've read lately.

The ability to help others is, indeed, a gift. And HERS is working hard to ensure that you can give back in a way that's safe and fun. There are several ways you can support HERS patients the weekend of September 26-27:

Walk or Run

Decide if you'll walk or run, how far, and where! Some friends have shared they'll walk on their treadmill or around their yard. Others have mapped courses through their neighborhoods or local parks. Quite a few choices but remember that there's just one place to register online -- ItsYourRace.com.

Or, if you prefer to register by mail, our new 2020 Registration Form is ready to go!

  • $20 per person (walk or run)
  • $75 per group of 4 (walk or run)
  • $10 per pet

100% of fees this year will benefit our Assistance Programs.

Yoga with Anjali

We're excited to offer a gentler alternative to walking and running -- yoga!

Board Member and yoga instructor Anjali Rao will lead an "all levels are welcome" Zoom yoga session Saturday, September 26 from 10:30 am to 11:15 am. The registration fee is just $20 per person.

To register, call (510) 790-1911. Zoom access will be emailed to registrants by September 25th.

REMINDER: Kick-Off is Saturday, September 26 @ 9am

We'll get the virtual party started on September 26 at 9 am! Join us via Facebook LIVE for opening remarks, Elaine's Circle with dove release, and a super fun warm-up with Shameem of XTRIM Bollywood!

Prize drawings will take place every hour (9 am to 2 pm) following our kickoff.
