Kidney Walk

Sat, 04/26/2014 - 12:00pm

Evansville Riverfront

I am participating in the Kidney Walk benefitting the National Kidney Foundation on April 26, 2014 in Evansville, Indiana. Today, I am asking you to support my fundraising efforts.
I have been encouraged to do this walk for my 6 year old son, Mac. Mac went through kidney failure in December of 2011 and I was able to donate my kidney to him on September 12, 2012. Before this I was not aware of kidney disease and how it can really change your life or end it! My son will have several tough battles throughout his entire life and as his mom I want to try and make each battle easier for him.
Did you know that Kidney Disease kills over 90,000 people a year and over 100,000 people are currently on the waiting list for a LIFESAVING organ transplant? With our support we can help the victims of Kidney Disease. The National Kidney Foundation Walk is held in nearly 100 communities, this event raises awareness and funds lifesaving programs that educate and support patients, their families, and those at risk.
Please consider supporting me and the National Kidney Foundation as we work together to fight kidney disease. Join Team MAC!!!!! We will gather at the Old National Bank on the Riverfront in Evansville at 12:00 p.m. April 26th and the walk will begin at 1:00 p.m. Please contact me at (812) 455-3725 if you want to walk with us or donate to support my efforts.
I appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress. Also, PLEASE consider becoming an organ donor, I did and it saved my son’s life. Thank you!

Gardens on the tour include:   

  • Nancy and Jerry Dalton, 1100 Woodland Court – A three-tiered fountain surrounded by boxwood hedges welcome visitors to this lovely hilltop home at the Henderson Country Club.  A gazebo for entertaining and a picket fence for repetition of colorful annuals add to the charm of a low maintenance backyard.
  • Amy and Joey Jameson, 13034 Crestwood Court – An outstanding example of how much outdoor entertaining can be packed into a small, intimate area.  A fireplace, dining area and outdoor kitchen share space with comfortable modern furniture placed in front of a completely sheltered big screen TV.

 

  • Dick and Sheila Beaven, 6056 Laurel Trail – A shaded circular path hidden under oak and dogwood trees create the peaceful feel of a mystical secret garden.  Also has a great example of raised bed vegetable gardening that will be the envy of every baby boomer taking the tour.

  • Louise and Andre’ Trawick, 300 South Water Street – Surrounding one of Henderson’s oldest and most historic homes is a garden brimming with a wide variety of plants.  One very unique idea is to replace grassy areas with creeping thyme.

  • Lowry Igleheart-Keach, 1400 State Route 136 West – This Antebellum home is the site of one of Henderson’s oldest and most diverse gardens.  Recently revitalized by the creative energy of Mrs. Igleheart-Keach, it is a must see on the tour.
  • Mary Ann and Howard Campbell, 8166 U.S. Highway 41 Alternate – A charming gazebo creates the focal point for this classic country garden.  Boxwoods, hollies and century old trees lend perimeters to many lush mounded beds and perennial borders.
  • Eric Stinson, 8942 U.S. Highway 41 Alternate – This beautifully landscaped outdoor living area was created to encourage family members to develop individual interests.  Areas for soccer, football, basketball, golf and swimming have been created.  For anyone wanting to invest in an outdoor living area, you must see the wide variety of structures such as the outdoor kitchen, fireplace and waterfall and creek that run to a koi pond and hot tub. 
  • Ruby Moon Winery, 9566 U.S. Highway 41 Alternate – One of Henderson’s real jewels is the vineyard at Ruby Moon.  Tour the house garden, tasting room and gift shop.  Also enjoy seeing the new event center and overnight suite.  Walk along vineyard rows brimming with eight different grape varieties.
