Summary of the walkathon
The event was a huge success despite of the rain. We had about 70 in attendance. Many chose to register on site I think because they were concerned with the weather.
Because of the economy that is taking a toll here in South Florida where PANDORA is headquartered, we knew that we would not raise the same amount of money we raised last year. Nonetheless, we created an outstanding awareness for our organization and for its mission. We had exposure on online publications and a Radio interview with Ron St. John from Majic 102.7 for their community show of Dr. Kenneth Friedman and Karen Sacks, MS, LCPC, LMHC.
Pictures will be posted soon.
