This weekend my family and I are going to go to the Congenital Heart Walk at 9:45 a.m. at the boathouse in North Park. This walk is to raise awareness for Congenital Heart Defects, America’s #1 birth defect. Regulatory and Quality Solutions is a sponsor of this event; it is very close to our hearts since it involves our esteemed friend and colleague, Deb Gimbel.
RQS is walking in support of Riley Alexa Jones, Deb Gimbel’s niece. You may have remembered reading about Riley in Deb’s blog “Heart To Heart” http://rqteam.com/2012/12/heart-to-heart/ Just looking at Riley’s smiling face makes you understand how the advance of medical technology really can drastically change lives for the better. This is truly a worthy cause!
So, if you have a chance, come out to walk with us this Saturday. If you can’t come to the event, please consider donating at the following website: http://congenitalheartwalk.kintera.org/faf/search/searchTeamPart.asp?ievent=1052771&lis=1&kntae1052771=3C008BF363694E1790D39D0D5C53B062&supId=0&team=5491269
Hope to see you Saturday!
