 “Hearts of Gold Mall Walk” to Benefit Memorial Children’s Hospital

Saturday, Feb. 4, 2012
7:30 – 10:30 a.m.
University Park Mall, Mishawaka

The first-ever “Hearts of Gold Mall Walk” will take place Saturday, Feb. 4 at the University Park Mall. The event will help raise funds for Memorial Children’s Hospital, the only designated children’s hospital in the region.

Funds are being raised to help expand pediatric services, facilities and equipment so that local children no longer have to travel hours away for care. With the support of our community, more families are able to stay together as they face the stress of having a child who is sick or injured.

Walk to support local pediatric services.
Walk in honor of a child you love.
Walk on your own.
Walk with a team.

Register to Participate

The starting line is at the Barnes & Noble mall entrance. Walkers may begin any time between 7:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Strollers are welcome. Kali Rose, 2011 Inspirational Country Music Awards Female Vocalist of the Year will perform, and refreshments will be provided.

Walkers may raise funds online at www.heartsofgoldwalk.org or in person. Donations collected in person must be brought to “check-in” the day of the event.

Walkers who raise at least $50 are entered to win prizes from mall stores and will receive Hearts of Gold chocolates, generously donated by the South Bend Chocolate Company. Prizes of a $100 Simon Malls gift card will be awarded for the best “Who Do You Love?” costume and decorated stroller. Prize winners will be announced between 9 and 10:30 a.m.

To sign up as a walker, register a team of walkers or to join a team, simply visit www.heartsofgoldwalk.org or call 574-647-1801.
