Heel to Heal Plus Tackle Sickle Cell 5K 2019

Alan's Angels

Welcome to our team page! We will be participating in Embrace Kids Foundation's Heel to Heal Plus Tackle Sickle Cell Walk and 5K on Sunday, May 19th 2019, in Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ. Please support our efforts to make a difference in the lives of children with cancer, blood disorders and other serious health challenges.

Thank you for visiting the Alan's Angels fundraising page. We are a team who walks in memory of Alan Winegarden, who lost a coureageous battle with rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of childhood cancer.

Alan's family and friends are forever changed by his fight. Alan’s determination and positive nature was a ray of sunshine throughout his battle. Now almost thirteen years since his death, we are faced with the challenge every day of living without him. As difficult as it is, we have chosen to celebrate Alan’s life by participating in the Embrace Kids Foundation’s Heel to Heal fundraiser. This will be the 14th year our team will be walking in the Heel to Heal and the 15th year that Alan's Angels has participated in a walk in memory of Alan.

We hope you will consider supporting our efforts to raise funds for Embrace Kids Foundation. Whatever you can give will help - it all adds up! Thank you so much for your support!

Randi Levine, Alan's stepsister on behalf of Alan's Angels
