Team Sarcoma Utah Awareness Walk

Hi everyone!

The 3rd Annual Team Sarcoma Utah Awareness Walk is being held this Saturday, July 19th at Jordanelle State Park. As you may remember, last year we had quite a group supporting Nick, sporting "Cowboy Up" tee shirts. Well, our little group made the newsletter/flyer announcing this year's event. Please attend if you can (Lee and I, unfortunately will be out of town). We truly support this endeavor as research funding for childhood cancer is rapidly running out of money and many trials have been closed due to lack of funds. The Liddy Shriver Foundation does a fantastic job in raising awareness for sarcomas so for us participating with Nick, we raise both awareness for childhood cancer and sarcomas.
Here is the information from the flyer:

Celebrate
Sarcoma Awareness Week
July 12 - 20, 2008

Nicholas Raitt, (back row center) along with many loved ones and friends took part in the Team Sarcoma Utah event in 2007. They attended in support of Nicholas and wore T-shirts with COWBOY UP across the front, Nicholas’s favorite expression. They were a lively, fun, and caring group. We look forward to seeing them at the 2008 Sarcoma Awareness Week Walk.
Sarcoma patients, survivors, families, friends, and healthcare providers are invited to join the third annual Team Sarcoma Utah awareness walk and BBQ. The event will take place Saturday, July 19 from 2 to 6 p.m. at Jordanelle State Park on Highway 40, between I-80 and Heber City.

Yay for Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative! What a great organization-I went to Denmark with them a couple years ago. AMAZING people!

It's awesome that you are doing that!

How did the Team Sarcoma event go? I was with the core team in Austria, and it was amazing! Thank you for participating with us. :-)

Dear Lori and family
The Ulvins were in Sonoma on July 19th - as moral support for Jessica in her first marathon - the Wine Country Half Marathon - Napa to Sonoma. She successfully completed it and is making plans to join you in 2009 at the Nashville Marathon. Stan and I will work on our clapping and cheering skills and be at mile 12 to encourage all you dedicated souls. Godspeed. Chris
