Rainbow of Heroes Walk
On Saturday April 27, 2019, we will walk together as a community. Along the way, as we carry balloons with patients' names on them, people stop, talk together, and enjoy each other. Finally, we release the balloons. The Rainbow of Heroes Walk commemorates and celebrates all Duke Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant (PBMT) patients and their families. Refreshments, music, and activities for everyone are provided. The Walk is not only the main fundraiser for the Duke PBMT Family Support Program. More than that, it is a reunion for patients, families, nurses, therapists, doctors, volunteers, and supporters who have come to know each other through the months-long transplant process. Find out more on our website at www.rainbowofheroeswalk.org.
We are recruiting volunteers to help with set up, tear down, and assist with different stations at the event. For more information about volunteering, please contact Julie Berry at Julie.email@example.com.
