2021 VIRTUAL Warrior Walk: Celebrating Life Beyond Cancer

Team Olney

 

 

 

 

 

 

Good morning Team Olney Warrior Walkers: (May 30, 2021)

 Each year, thousands of people are diagnosed with cancer. It’s time to once again bring the community together to make a difference for those cancer impacts. Proceeds from funds raised by Team Olney will leukemia cancer research efforts led by Dr. Calvi at the Wilmot Cancer Institute. We have raised and donated over $240,000 over the past 5 years to support this research. Our team goal is to raise another $20,000 for this years walk. Show your support by joining Team Olney today!

Team Olney will dedicate this years walk to my wife Beverly. Bev, as you know, has been courageously battling early onset Alzheimer's disease. Bev has been a role model for caregivers since I was diagnosed in July of 2011. Her condition has significantly worsened in the past 5 months and the doctors have told the family this may be her last opportunity to participate in this important event. Please show Bev the love and support you have always shown her by donating in her name.

Team Olney has created a special T shirt. I will be sending each of you who chose to participate in this years Virtual Walk an e mail with information about how to get your T shirt. Anyone who donates $100 will get a free T shirt. If you donate $200, you will get 2 free T shirts, etc. If you want an extra T shirt and you donated $100 or more, you can add $15 to your donation. Details to follow and I will explain more in the e mail. On the back of the T shirt, you have a chance to put the name of the person you are walking for. 

 

The Bible tells us the following in PROVERBS 11:24–25:

YOUR GENEROSITY DEFINES YOUR EXPERIENCE
One gives freely, yet grows all the richer;
another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.
Whoever brings blessing will be enriched,
and one who waters will himself be watered.

Thank you for your generous support to the important work being done at the Wilmot Cancer Institute. God Bless you all...Team Olney.

 

Dear Team Olney Warrior Walkers. (July 19, 2021)

It is with great sadness and a broken heart that I have to inform you that my beautiful wife Beverly went to be with the Lord on June 29, 2021 surrounded by her family that loved her so very much. Bev had been battling Alzheimer’s disease for the past 3 and a half years. We are dedicating this years walk to Bev who was my caregiver for the first 6 years of my cancer journey and was the ultimate caregiver to everyone she knew. Bev surrounded herself with good people and loved them dearly. Her passing has left a significant void in my heart and all those she touched.

The purpose of this note is to allow an opportunity for those that have not had a chance to donate to the Warrior Walk and receive a T shift honoring Bev and any loved one you may want to honor. If you donate $100 or more to the Walk, I will send a follow up e mail and give you an opportunity to order a T shirt. I have to order them by August 1, 2021 so I can have them by the event being held virtually between September 10 and 12. Please consider a donation to this worthy cause.

One of Bev’s favorite Bible versus, one that was read during her celebration of life service, was Matthew 6:19-21:

Matthew 6:19-21 19"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

Please search your heart and consider honoring Bev and donating to this important cause.

God Bless, we love you…Team Olney
