Rachel's Walk of Love  is grateful to the Thomas Jefferson Elementary School 6th Grade Girl Scout Troop for packing hundreds of participant goody bags for Rachel's 5K!

Rachel's Walk of Love  is so grateful to a special 4th grade girl named Cammi, who contacted us and said she wanted to vounteer for Rachel's Walk of Love.

Cammi attended Rachel's 5K in 2012, and was touched by Rachel's story and the mission of the foundation. We are so honored that she has chosen to volunteer for Rachel's Walk of Love.

Cammi has shown great enthusiasm and responsibility as she has joyfully taken on many projects at a critically busy time, just weeks before our 2013 Rachel's 5k event. She has also shown incredible leadership, as she has initiated many avenues to help raise money and promote Rachel's 5K Walk.

Cammi recently created a lemonade stand to raise money for Rachel's Walk of Love. She collected over $111 from her lemonade stand in just one day!

Thank you Cammi, for being such a fantastic role model for your peers, and for contributing so much to the success of Rachel's 5K Walk of Love! We are so grateful for all you do!
