Energy For Life Walkathon

It's time for the Energy For Life Walkathon!  The EFL Walk Houston will be held at Sam Houston Park, Houston TX, on February 4, 2012.  Team Not Without A Trace is hoping to make as positive of an impact as we did last year.  We were so proud to have had so many family & friends work so hard to make Team Not Without A Trace such a success!  This is our second year and we are ready to Fight the War on Mito!  That's our theme this year and we are really excited about it!  Click on this link Not Without A Trace to visit our team page.

You can register to walk in the event on-line at Not Without A Trace.  Take your participation to the next level by gathering pledges to raise even more money from neighbors, friends, and co-workers.  If you are unable to attend the walk, you may still support team Not Without A Trace by joining our team as a virtual walker or joining our pledge raising efforts and making a donation on-line.  There is also a mail in donation form if you are unable to donate on-line, click Mail In Donation Form if needed.

This year's fundraisers for the walk will include Fight the War on Mito camo tshirts and a  fundraiser with Team Hudson.  Team Hudson is the EFL walk team for Trace's best buddy.  We were able to attend the fundraiser last year and it was a lot of fun and a huge success.  So as you can imagine, we were honored to be asked to join their fundraiser this year.  It will be held January 20, 2012 and include dinner, dance, live auction, silent auction, raffle, face painting, balloon art, toy walk and cake walk. I am really excited about joining this event!  To place your order for a tshirt, purchase tickets to the fundraiser or for more information, please contact me at

Every 30 minutes, a child will be born who will develop mitochondrial disease by the age of 10.  Mitochondrial disease occurs when there is a defect in the body’s ‘powerhouses’.  The mitochondria fail to produce enough energy.  That results in organ systems failing.  The brain may be impaired.  They may lose vision or hearing.  The heart may be weakened, and they may have eating and digestive issues.  The symptoms range from mild to severe for each affected person.  The disease is fatal and there is No CureJoin team Not Without A Trace and help us get one step closer to a cure.  For more information on joining or donating to team Not Without A Trace, please contact me at

We are inspired by your love and friendship, by your concern and support, and by your participation in helping us raise money to continue funding very necessary research that takes us closer to a cure for Trace.

Again, thank you for helping Trace and we hope each of you will be able to participate on February 4, 2012!

Pictures from our walk last year.  Although the weather decided not to coorperate and the walk in Houston was cancelled, our family & friends decided the weather could not get them down and had a walk for Trace at our local park
What an amazing day I'll never forget!

An excited Trace at his walk!

Hope, Love, Courage &Faith,
