You may remember ZOE volunteer Joe Chongsiriwatana. His son, Noah, featured on this blog back in December’s post: The Most Awesome Toy Ever Made.
Noah’s kindness, creativity and generosity touched not just the hearts of the ZOE children, but many others who heard about his Lego initiative and felt inspired that they could also make a difference, no matter their age.
Well now just months later, Joe’s mom is making headlines for her enthusiasm and commitment to being a Team Captain in the upcoming ZOE Rescue Walk.
While other 64 year olds might be feeling like life should be slowing down, this super-energized grandmother is reminding us all that we are only as old as we feel.
- The ZOE Rescue Walk will provide several ways to help raise awareness and funds to support ZOE Children’s Homes.
- All of the funds raised during the ZOE Rescue Walk will help ZOE continue on its mission of rescuing children in need.
- The ZOE Rescue Walk, gives Southern Californians the opportunity to provide support to children who are suffering, not from a physical disease, but from a societal affliction: human trafficking.
- The walk will take place on November 10th, 2012, between 9 a.m. and noon at Newhall Park in Santa Clarita, California.
- Interested participants can register as walkers, team captains, team members, or simply support someone who is walking. Registration is $20 for adults and $15 for kids. Signing up as a team captain allows participants to set a fundraising goal and invite their friends and family to become part of their team.
- In addition, ZOE is inviting businesses to become corporate sponsors of the event, which will include a silent auction, a kids’ walk and an awards ceremony.
