A GREAT Success!

Our first annual Walk for Kaz was a great success!

Our goal for the walk was to raise money to put towards the $10,000 we need for the 100 Beds for Sleepyheads Campaign. With the help of the 104 registrants and sponsors, Walk for Kaz raised $10,123.28! We are overwhelmed, shocked, amazed and genuinely thankful that we will be able to purchase 100 new beds and 100 new mattresses for the children at the Ulan Orphanage in Taraz, Kazakhstan!

The weather was great, the families were wonderful and everyone had a blast! Please "like" Walk for Kaz on facebook to see some pictures!

Congratulations and thank you to the following winners:

~ Team Kazmanian Devils for raising the most money ($3831.25), having the most team spirit and the most members!

~ Joanne Morley of NY for raising the most money for an individual, $1795!

~ Nick Kitzman of KY for raising the most money for a child, $876.25!

~ Lory Printy of OH for the fastest finish with a stroller!

~ David Prud'homme, Angela Reinoehl and Michele Torre for placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd!

A sincere and heartfelt thank you to Alaina Falk and family, Ann Hochstetler and family, Gretchen Bilbro and family and our many sponsors and volunteers for putting on this great event!
