THE WENDY’S WALK WHICH ACKNOWLEDGES BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH IS SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24TH FROM 8 AM TO NOON AT THE TYBEE ISLAND LIGHTHOUSE.  

Wendy's Walk

Tybee Island Lighthouse

30 Meddin Dr, Tybee Island, GA

October 24, 2015 | 9:00 AM

Last year our October Monthly Survivor Fun Walk at the Lighthouse acknowledging Breast Cancer Awareness month was renamed Wendy's Walk in honor of our friend Wendy Brewer. Wendy is a longtime lighthouse volunteer, writer, photographer, and breast cancer survivor. She is also a huge supporter of our local Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure event. Earlier this year her Team Glow came in second in terms of dollars raised, but first in sincerity and commitment. As you know Every Step Counts is a rarity in the nonprofit world because we don't ask people for money. Our purpose is to help survivors return to good health through walking and exercise. It doesn't cost anything to walk and you don't need your insurance company's approval. This time, however, we are asking you to bring your checkbook and write out a donation to Susan G. Komen for the Cure in honor of Wendy Brewer. Consider this the first Team Glow fundraiser for the 2016 event.

Once again the Lighthouse and the museum are opening their doors and parking lot for us at no charge from 8:00 AM until 12:00 Noon. They are also providing pink lemonade and cookies. 

 

As the date grows closer we will have more to report. Please go ahead and mark October 24th on your calendar and save the date.

CPR SEEKS HELP FOR HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOGS
TFN

COASTAL PET RESCUE IS SEEKING DONATIONS FOR HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOG TREATMENTS.  It's been a long year for Coastal Pet Rescue, and with 99 canine intakes this year,   it's only going to be longer.  So far, Coastal Pet Rescue has treated five canines for heartworms, and two more are still awaiting their turn, but help is urgently needed to fund the medical care.  Although heartworms are preventable thanks to monthly medications, many of the dogs Coastal Pet Rescue rescues have not been kept current -  If ever at all - on the prevention, and thus need the expensive treatments.  Treatments can run $600 to $1200 depending upon the severity of the infestation, and since Coastal Pet Rescue does not believe in passing on the excessive medical bills for adopters and instead charges only a flat $150 adoption fee, there's a lot left to cover.  Donations may be made online at coastalpetrescue.org/donate or by mail to Coastal Pet Rescue, PO Box  30462, Savannah, GA 31410.
