JANES Event:
The Rise School of Corpus Christi's
1st Annual Rise & Shine Walk

See JANES Shine!!!

Challenge: Come one, come all JANES
Let's beat the MoB!!!

Our next great event is The First Annual Rise & Shine Walk to support The Rise School of Corpus Christi on Saturday, February 23rd @ 8 am.

 It's a 1K/5K Walk at Cole Park with fun, games, & entertainment to follow the walk.

If you don't know about The Rise School, it's a privately-funded, wonderfully positive early childhood education program for children with developmental disabilities, such as Down's Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, & other developmental delays.
The program serves children from the ages of 18 months to 6 years.

Our wonderful BAF music director & guitar player, Joey Davila & his equally-talented wife,  Gloria have an absolutely beautiful son, Jaden, who has Down's Syndrome. Jaden benefits from this school, as do many other CC children with developmental challenges. The Rise School works to minimize the challenges of such disablities for these young children while focusing on maximizing & developing their abilities.

Such a great organization deserves our focus & attention. We've challenged the MOB (Men of Bay Area Fellowship) to come out & bring big numbers to help support this school. Now we've got to make sure they don't beat us! 

If you're interested, please check out this link to learn more about The Rise School.  Then, to sign up, print off this form & bring it in or mail it in to the address listed on the form.  I will also be happily accepting registration forms & fees at the Guest Services desk at church on weekends before the event. Registration fee is $25 per person or $50 per family (2-4 people).

Deadline to register at church is next weekend!  You may still register by mail or at Baby & Belly  until Feb. 20th.  Late registration will also be accepted on the day of the walk for an additional $5.

Go JANES go! Let's beat the MOB & raise funding for this great school at the same time!
