I became affiliated with Making Headway through my dear friend, Holly Kensicki Lind. When she passed away after a long, brave battle with cancer, we approached the foundation in an effort to create an event to honor Holly. Making Headway was not only helpful in coordinating the Day in the Park; they were so grateful and enthusiastic in planning. We spent months working with the foundation on finding exactly the right place and ways to make the day special. When the big day arrived, Making Headyway was there to direct us and the Manley's were there to talk about the foundation and how they use the funds raised. They do such wonderful things for children and families with children suffering with cancer. We also got to speak in honor of our friend Holly and help to keep her bright spirit alive. We wouldn't have been able to pull this amazing day together so beautifully without the assistance of Making Headway. Knowing what great folks they are and how much they are able to help with the money raised, we are so excited to work on our Day in the Park for 2013.
