9th Annual Rady Children's Hospital Family Walk

Walking for Will's Angels

Join our team - Walking for Will's Angels!

As you all know, on June 9, 2015, our family was dealt a devastating blow, when our Sweet Will was in a swimming accident. For 5 full days we sat and waited, surrounded by family and friends, holding onto hope that Will would wake up. It was in those 5 days that our nurses, Mary Jo and Desiree, would get to see us at our most vulnerable. They were witness to our disbelief, tears, ocassional laughter, and to our dancing (yes, we danced because Will loved music and dancing). They answered our questions, supplied us with boxes of tissues, patted our shoulders, gave hugs and respected our privacy. They took such wonderful care of all of us, but especially Will. They were kind and compassionate, they were Will's Angels.

As a way of thanking them and to show our support, we've created the Walking for Will's Angels Team for the 9th Annual Rady Children's Hospital Family Walk. Please join us for the 3 mile walk this Sunday, October 4, 7:30am, South Shores Park, Mission Bay – complimentary parking available at SeaWorld’s main lot. If you can't join us, please consider donating to this event and the wonderful people of the PICU!  The proceeds raised from Walking for Will's Angels will benefit the PICU at Rady Children's Hospital - San Diego.

Lastly, I apologize for the lateness of this, but we just learned of the walk. I anticipate that this will be an annual event for friends, family and community members to honor Will and the team that cared for him.

Not a day goes by where we don't think about Will and how much joy he brought to the world around him in his short stay.

Thank you for your continous support,

Heather Cunningham - Proud Aunt of Sweet Will
