Dear Walk from Obesity Participant,
As you know, we had to reschedule the North Texas Walk from Obesity a few weeks ago due to inclement weather. Tomorrow (6/24) we were supposed to come together and walk for this very important cause, however, the forecast does not seem to be in our favor this time either. The local Presenting Sponsor and the ASMBS Foundation have decided to CANCEL the actual Walk at this time and will not be rescheduling the event.
Even though the weather will not allow us to hold the event and do an actual Walk, we will still be offering a time for each participant to come by and pick-up their t-shirt and/or to drop off any additional donations you may have collected. We appreciate you supporting this event and with your help we were able to raise over $7,000 for obesity research, education, and awareness! We hope you are able to come by tomorrow and pick-up your official Walk from Obesity t-shirt.
