In 2017 Emily will leave for college so her family will be hosting a Pediatric Stroke Awareness carnival and a pumpkin walk. This will be held 9/23/2017 at the Ranch Of Lonesome Dove in Southlake from 10am - 1pm. All are welcome.
The Pediatric Stroke Walk/Run has been a passion and dream of Emily's. In 2013 she was able to hold her first annual event and it was a success! Each year the educational and fun walk/run is held at the Ranch Of Lonesome Dove in Southlake TX. The race is held in the morning and then following the volunteers make hundreds of Emily's Smile Boxes. Then additional volunteers drop the boxes to all the area DFW pediatric hospitals. The volunteers are treated to a wonderful lunch, games, and lot's of treats. Each year the attendance has grown and we are so pleased that stroke awareness is being spread to so many people. Education is key! Emily will start advertising her annual event on Facebook so be sure to stay tuned.
