The RESOLVE 2014 DC Walk of Hope was not hindered by a little rain with over 500 in attendance. The National Harbor Pavilion was buzzing with the feeling of hope and excitement. For some the journey was just beginning while others walked to celebrate overcoming their infertility with babies and children in tow.
The Walk of Hope raises funds to help support RESOLVE’s initiative to promote reproductive health and to ensure equal access to all family building options for men and women experiencing infertility. The impact made by RESOLVE can mainly be seen through their network of volunteer based support groups and legislative advocacy on behalf of the nearly 14 million men and women with infertility in the United States.
Every year, Shady Grove Fertility physicians, staff, and patients look forward to coming together in support of this important event. This year was no exception, team spirit was abound. The Shady Grove Fertility K Street Office created their own t-shirts and the over $75 was raised through penny jars alone!
As a whole over this year’s DC Walk of Hope raised over $84,000. “The Walk of Hope is about community. We want those suffering to feel the support of their families and friends, the community, and from RESOLVE. The Walk of Hope proves that everyone needs someone to support them on this journey. No one with infertility should walk alone.” Julie Hall, Walk of Hope Chair.
