Wendy shared why she walked in the Culture Crawl last year.
“I joined the walk as I was deeply inspired by my dear friend’s courage. She is continuing her fight with courage, determination and humour. She speaks so highly of how she likes to go to Maggie’s after her treatment.
While at the Chelsea Flower Show last year I was moved by the beautiful Maggie's garden. I was looking down at the garden and someone explained the significance of your work and this added to my admiration of the concept of Maggie’s.”
There is still time to sign up for this years Culture Crawl on Friday 28th September visit www.maggiescentres.org/ccoxford or drop in the centre and talk to Ruth.

We’re back with another instalment of Why I Walk, profiling some of the volunteers and organizers who make Walk for Thomas happen! Today we’re featuring Joanne Larson (above in the red t-shirt - hi, Joanne! 👋), a community organizer, fundraiser, connector, volunteer and mum, who shares what the Walk means to her:
“Thomas was a classmate and friend of our eldest daughter. I remember him in her classroom, and bouncing down the stairs to go home for lunch. He was always smiling and was full of energy. I was honoured when asked by Thomas’ family to help organize this walk in 2011. Bringing our community together to remember this great kid was both a way to heal and to make sense of this terrible loss.
I walk to support Thomas’ family and friends, to celebrate the energetic spirit of a boy whose life was ended way to soon, and to help ensure that all kids who must face this disease have access to the best and most comfortable treatments possible.” .
There’s just THREE more sleeps until the 8th annual Walk for Thomas - join us for another year of memory-making this Sunday!

Today I took a short walk after my noon Restore Your Core class to soak up some sun (and catch some Pokémon before picking up my kids). I walked at Sandy Creek Park, one of my favorite places to take a quick nature break. Stuff I saw: photo 1, a baby snake. Photo 2: the water and the mud and my shadow. Photo 3: the water level during Monday’s flooding would have been up to my shoulders. Photo 4: while most of the (paved) path had been cleared of excess sand, the mud and remaining water meant that I had to practice being mindful of where I put my feet. I did some impressive sliding on the mud more than once. #walkeveryday #durhamcityparks #durhamnc #whyiwalk #whereiwalk #naturebreak #restoreyourcore #restoreyourself #smallactsofselfcare

Hi everyone! This weekend, I’m participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's in honor of my Grandma D. My Grandma was a truly special soul. She was so ahead of her time, and such a sharp, intelligent lady. We miss her so much and were so lucky to have her in our lives. I'm doing this walk to honor her memory and hopefully make a difference in others' lives affected by this disease. 💜

Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Making a donation means advancing the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. If you’d like to be a part of this cause and make a difference in the fight to end Alzheimer’s, visit the link in my bio to donate. 💜👆🏻#ENDALZ @alzassociation

Our Annual Walk is only three days away! There’s still time to register at naminovawalk.org or to continue to raise support as a team member or individual walker. By participating, you are making a difference and helping individuals and families in your community find help and hope when they need it most. #naminovawalk #whyiwalk

The highlight of every Walk is our Promise Garden. Did you know each flower has a different meaning? Emily explains in the video. #WhyIWalk

We're so excited to partner with George Washington University's Art Therapy program and A Place to Be, a nonprofit providing music therapy in Loudoun County, to offer interactive art and music therapy stations at our Annual Walk!

From GWU: 'art therapy is an integrative mental health profession that enriches the lives of individuals, families, and communities through art-making, creative process, (and) applied psychological theory.' Art therapy can be calming, rewarding, and an important part of the recovery journey for many folks!

A Place to Be is 'an influential therapeutic arts organization' whose music therapy program 'uses music and music-based interventions' to improve both physical and mental health. They strive to 'create an inclusive society where everyone is seen as equal and valuable, with unique gifts and challenges.' Visit naminovawalk.org for more information or to register for the Walk! We hope to see you on Saturday, September 22, at Tysons Corner Center on the Plaza! #naminovawalk #whyiwalk

Riddled with heart disease on her father’s side of the family, Lori Sain Smith has always known of lives cut short in the early days before modern cardiovascular care and education. She's also witnessed lives extended because of medical advances that are directly a result of the research and work of the American Heart Association.
Her family has been committed to raising awareness and funding for the global impacts the AHA makes every day. Join the Smith family this Saturday and walk in Rutherford Heart Walk! #ruthheartwalk #whyIwalk rutherfordheartwalk.org .

Each year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental health condition. One in five to be exact. So why are many of us still unable to accept it as a real and life changing issue? It all starts with kindness and understanding 💕

💙Mental health conditions do not discriminate based on race, color, gender or identity. Anyone can experience the challenges of mental illness regardless of their background. However, background and identity can make access to mental health treatment much more difficult. 💚This is #WhyIWalk . Because taking on the challenges of mental health conditions, health coverage and the stigma of mental illness requires all of us. Join me on Saturday, September 22nd as we walk to #ReverseTheStigma at the @naminorthernva Walk In Tyson’s Corner. Let’s work to increase mental health awareness of lack of funding for treatment of those affected and promote better care/resources for those affected by mental illness whether directly or indirectly.

I'm fundraising because we have been silent for too long. In Canada, between 2009 - 2016, 865 victims of human trafficking were known to police, 95% of them female and 72% under the age of 25. And this is the only reported numbers, what about those who go unreported?

Do you have a team for our Annual Walk coming up this Saturday? Did you know that we are having a Walk team t-shirt contest on the day of? Here are a few tips for designing fun team t-shirts. If you haven't registered for the Walk, you can sign up as an individual or create your own team (or join an existing team!) at naminovawalk.org :

1. Create a meaningful team name. Why do you walk? Your team name can help you share your reason for walking or can be a business name--be creative!
2. If you are feeling crafty (and want to keep things budget-friendly), print your design onto iron-on transfer paper and transfer to a plain t-shirt; use fabric markers to draw a design or message; or pin on ribbons!
3. T-shirts should be bright and colorful so that your team stands out!
4. Need help with a t-shirt design? Online custom t-shirt companies have lots of options. Simple t-shirts often have the greatest impact! To get started, check out CustomInk (https://www.customink.com) or UberPrints (www.uberprints.com.) 5. Make your design creative and unique! T-shirts are often a conversation-starter both during and after the Walk. People love t-shirts, especially cool ones!
