2009 Twilight Walk!!!

So, we've said before that if ever it's a little quiet on the blog, it means we're up to something!

We are now open for registration for The Kyrie Foundation's


You are invited to the second-annual Kyrie Foundation Twilight Walk, a two-mile evening stroll event to raise research funds to fight pediatric brain cancer. We'll walk nine quarter-mile laps, one lap for each child diagnosed every day with brain cancer in the U.S.

Saturday, September 19, 2009
Bishop Carroll High School Track
8101 W. Central
Wichita, KS

$10 per registrant or $35 for a group of 4
(just like last year)
Registration fee includes t-shirt, illumination star and two free game tickets per child.
Children 2 years old & under are FREE!

4:00 p.m. Food & Festivities Begin
7:15 p.m. Twilight Walk Begins

And we're doing something a little different this year: there is the option to take the fundraising challenge, an "above & beyond" decision to fundraise on top of your $10 registration fee. We know that there are several similar events that require a registrant to raise a set amount; we wanted that idea to be voluntary not mandatory. The funds raised from this event are important—life and death important—but we'd rather have you be with us at the Twilight Walk than not all because of a fundraising expectation.

That being said, you can form your team now and go for the challenge—request $5 sponsors from friends/family, hold your own bake sale, host a lemonade stand, have a garage sale, turn in your aluminum cans—whatever you'd like to do to fundraise for your team. And ... the fundraising challenge team that earns the most donations will receive a very special trophy and prizes!

For more info on teams, fundraising and the event itself, visit our Web site.

We'll have our fabulous snack shack, loads of children's games, adult+child races, our super silent auction (great place to score gifts!) and Kyrie Foundation gear for sale.

As we confirm more exciting details in the next few weeks, stay tuned here to the blog or to our Web site.

Rain or shine. Feel free to bring portable chairs, strollers, wheelchairs, sunbrellas.

Also, if you'd like to volunteer for the event, please feel free to e-mail Chad at
