‘United Angels’ friends and family will gather on June 3rd for carnival games, Signing Times, Yummy Food and lots of fun! United Angels would like to invite anyone who is interested in showing support to the angels in our special needs community to create a team and join us for our 8th Annual Walk With Angels advocacy walk and fundraiser.
The event will be held on Saturday, June 3, 2017, at Wine’s Park in Lehi, Utah. Registration begins at 9:00 am, and the walk begins at 11:00 am. This year they have a special guest, Rachel Coleman, from Sign Time! After the one-mile walk around the park there will be free entertainment, characters, BYU’s Cosmo as well as some BYU Football Players and athletes, free treats, food, raffles, prizes, bounce houses, and lots of games for the kids.
This is our only fundraising event of the year, and it is the reason that we are able to offer you and your angel’s so many wonderful training’s and family events throughout the year. Funds raised will directly support the following programs of United Angels, whose mission is to support parents and families of children with special needs: Angels Among Us, iPads 4 Angels, Educational Seminars, Ride 2 New Heights, Sub 4 Santa, and our annual Angel Awards.
Offer your friends, family, and associates a chance to support you by inviting them to rally around your child in this exciting event designed to promote advocacy and awareness. You will feel a sense of belonging and unity as you number yourselves among thousands who will walk the mile-long course to show support for our community.
Livin’ Up That Competitive Spirit!
Teams who are up to the challenge, can win a Kindle Fire, an iPad Mini, or an through their fundraising efforts. Invite your family, neighbors, and co-workers to contribute a monetary donation as part of joining your team.
