2011 Optimism

As 2011 has just started, I'm optimistic about the fresh year ahead.  We have been spoiled with supporters organizing a Softball Tournament in Park City the weekend of Feb. 26...The Kyrie Foundation has our annual Scrapbooking Krop set for April 2nd (Family Church - Wichita)...the annual Kyrie Klassic Golf Tournament is a-go for June 4 (Sierra Hills - Wichita)...our fourth-annual Twilight Walk will take place on Sept. 17 (Bishop Carrol High School - Wichita), and our 2011 Metamorphosis Art & Gift Auction will be finalized soon (weekend of Nov. 12).  The optimism comes from the turnout and response to the events we've held each year.  You have told us what we are trying to do is good and that we should continue to do so.  I'm optimistic about the conversations I've had with people who say "I want to help" or "I'd like to sponsor this event next year".  From our own experiences and that of our invaluable volunteers, this is certainly not an easy endeavor, however your encouragement and your support makes each event better and it fuels that optimism.  I wish each of you the best in all aspects of your lives in 2011 and thank you for bringing The Kyrie Foundation closer to help funding a cure for pediatric brain cancer.  - Chad
