The 10th Annual Emma Marie Keller Memorial Walk

Benefiting The Emma Marie Keller Memorial Foundation

 

To Whom It May Concern:


 On Saturday, August 19, 2017, the 10th Annual Emma Marie Keller Memorial Walk benefiting The Emma Marie Keller Memorial Foundation will be held at the Cook Township Community Center in Stahlstown, PA.  On behalf of The Emma Marie Keller Memorial Foundation, we would like you to consider making a donation to this year’s walk. We hope the walk this year will be the most successful to date and touch many lives because of donations from community businesses such as yours.

 In August 2007, our daughter Emma was born 11 weeks premature due to preeclampsia, weighing 1 pound 6 ounces. On January 28, 2008, Emma passed away. During her short 5 months, she had many challenges due to her prematurity.  The disease Preeclampsia and Emma’s extended hospital stay has forever changed our lives.  We feel that we have been called to give back and help others who are dealing with having a child with a long-term illness.  Since last year’s walk, your generous donations have helped The Emma Marie Keller Memorial Foundation provided over 1,000 toiletry kits and almost 2,500 hand/footprint cards for NICU parents to the five area Pittsburgh hospitals with Neonatal Intensive Care Units. Those hospitals include Children’s Hospital, Magee Women’s Hospital, Mercy Hospital, West Penn Hospital, and the Children’s Home.  Also, the Emma Marie Keller Memorial Foundation has helped families with expenses associated with having children with an extended stay in the NICU, helped families with traveling expenses for their child’s cancer treatments, recently started purchasing meal vouchers for families in Children’s Hospital’s NICU, and sadly helped three families with funeral expenses. 

This year to celebrate 10 years of support from our community, we are going to have a carnival theme at the walk.  Along with the other expectations our supports have come to look forward to at our yearly event there will be a bounce house, carnival games and prizes for kids of all ages.

You will find the various sponsorship levels listed on the following page.  We are also seeking in-kind donations.  If making an in-kind donation your company will be recognized at the walk with a 5x7 sign set up by donated item i.e.  Bottled Water provided by ABC Convenience Store.  Any donations valued at $100 or more will get company recognition during opening remarks.  Following is a list of items that we are in need of for our walk to be a success:

-Items for Chinese Auction
-Balloons for balloon release following the walk
-Snacks/refreshments for walkers before and after the walk
-Small prizes for carnival games
