Klimb 4 Kim 5

            Here we go, another climb up A Mountain!!  I remember the first climb we made, shortly after we moved here.  Kim found the event in the newspaper (we did not have a computer or internet - ahhhh, the simple times...).

             "Let's do this Dave.  It's for a good cause."

              At the time, we didn't know anyone with cancer.  No one.

             And now, now so many that have touched our lives are fighting courageously, just as Kim did...This is why this event is so important to me.  To us.  It will be the major fund raiser for Kim's foundation, as well.  I'm running out of steam.  Kim was tireless.  I'm pretty much down to work...and the kids.  I'm one place or the other.
             This walk is special for so many reasons.  To remember.  To share time with so many of you that have been there for us, to walk, talk, laugh...

              So Saturday, March 7th, we will do it again.  Starting promptly at 8:00ish, we will depart from the St Mary's Medical Center at 1702 W Anklam, just west of St. Mary's Hospital.  Please join us.  We are asking a $25 donation to Kim's foundation, or whatever you choose to contribute.  Please make checks payable to the Kimberly Conca Fund.  You can get cash or check to us and we will deliver it to the foundation or, you can mail it to:
                                                                               Carondelet Foundation
                                                                               2202 N Forbes Blvd
                                                                               Tucson, Az 85745
                                                                                c/o Kimberly Conca Fund

              To date, the fund has helped countless families here in Tucson with loved ones in the Carondelet hospitals by providing grants for food, gas, bills, etc.  $10K towards the new, all faiths, chapel at St Joseph's Hospital, $6K towards diagnostic machines for St. Joe's and, we just completed paperwork for the purchase of industrial strength recliners for ICU ($16K)!!

              Thank you so much for all you do!
