We are excited to announce that the May Day Walk 2012 Website has now launched (Registration is Ready), and for the second year in a row, the University Kiwanis Club of Seattle and their foundation is matching the next $5,000 in individual donations.

We thank them for their continued support of The Healing Center, and children’s organizations throughout our community and the world.

The May Day Walk this year will be on Sunday, May 6, 2012, from 1-4pm at Gas Works Park.   Hop on the website:, take a look at the event information, and register as a team or individual walker.  If you need any assistance with registering, please email our May Day Walk Chair and Seattle University Intern, Mattie Bess at, or phone The Healing Center, (206) 523-1206.

Proceeds from this Friend-ask-Friend fundraiser will directly benefit programs at The Healing Center.  Your participation is critical to the next family in need of healing.  Please join us and spread the word about how important The Healing Center is to grieving and healing families.

Can’t wait to see everyone on May 6th!
