Team Ryman was amazing! We had over 67 team members at the walk yesterday morning! How amazing! We can not thank each and every one of you enough, walkers and donors, for the support and love we have felt through this event! Even people wearing shirts when they couldn’t make it. Makes my heart so happy! We raised over $4,000 and still have donations coming in. The most amazing thing is that my company is going to match at least $3,000 of that for a Team Ryman total of more than $7,000! That money can do a lot of research and support. Since 1979, the Research Awards Program offered by the American Liver Foundation has provided more than $24 million in research funding. Over 800 qualified scientists and physicians have pursued careers in liver disease research and treatment as a result of receiving these grants early in their careers. We are playing a huge role in their ability to continue these grants!
I also look at the walk as a way for us to honor the two babies who play a huge role in why Ryman is here with us today and running around crazy like a normal toddler. There are two livers in the clouds on the Team Ryman shirts to represent them. We walked for them yesterday as well. So if you aren’t an organ donor please consider. http://organdonor.gov/mobile/
Can’t wait to do this event again next year!! Thank you all so much!!
