Reminder About the 2nd Annual Memorial Day Walk for the Parrots

The Memorial Day Weekend is here and  is time for the the 10 Mile Walk to Support the Parrots. This is the second year the fundraiser will be held. It was a tremendous success last year and close to $7,000 was raised for the parrots. This money was used to support the efforts of "A Refuge for Saving the Wildlife," a not-for-profit organization which provides care for parrots in need. Their are too many parrots who are not properly cared for, neglected or unwanted. A Refuge provides a haven for these poor unfortunate creatures, places them in a loving environment, help them overcome any physical or mental distresses through expert care and ultimately attempt to place them in an ideal home environment. It is a daunting task and is costly. That is why funds raised for the organization are so very important. To see more about the organization, check out their website at www.rescuethebirds.org.

To see a slideshow of photos from the first walk check out this youtube video. http://youtu.be/SLybPfVlsMs

The walk will be held on MONDAY MAY 28th at 8:00 AM  (Rain or Shine). It will last as long as it takes to cover ten miles.

The meeting place before the walk will be in the parking lot of the Lutheran Church of the Holy Spirit at 30 Riverwoods Rd. Lincolnshire.

The walk will take place along the Bike Trail along Riverwoods Road in Riverwoods, Illinois. 

For more detailed information contact ericaheller@gmail.com.

There are many ways you can participate in this event.
  •  Raise money and walk with us.
  • Support a walker by donating an amount per mile walked.
  • Donate a flat fee of your choice, in the name of either your own bird(s) or a pet at the shelter (check them out at the Refuge website www.rescuethebirds.org to see all the birds at the shelter).
  • Come cheer on the walkers and visit with some of the lucky birds who will be hanging out with the walkers during the walk (weather permitting for bird participation).
Regardless of the type of support you are able to provide, it will be a fun time for all bird lovers to get together and chat about our feathered friends, while raising money for them too!

If you are planning on walking and would like a sponsorship form please contact the Refuge and Rich Weiner (the director) will send one to you. We also have sponsorship forms at Niles Animal Hospital. Current volunteers should pick up their forms next time at the Refuge.

If you would like to support a volunteer, email Rich at Director@RescueThe Birds.org with who you will be sponsoring or Rich will suggest someone for you. Let him know you want to sponsor someone and also how much you will be donating per mile walked.

If you would like to make a donation or need any other information contact Rich Weiner (Director@RescueTheBirds.org) or Karen Weiner (lvmy2s@sbcglobal.net).

Also keep your eyes open for an announcement about a Yard Sale for Charity benefiting the Refuge to be held in the parking lot of Niles Animal Hospital, potentially July..

  27. I was diagnosed with Lyme disease 5 years ago and was taking Antibiotics and Nonsteroidal anti-Inflammatory drug which seemed to help. However, I still suffer from some of the symptoms. My symptoms have always been chronic fatigue, joint pain, and even neurological problems in controlling hand and leg movements. I am a 54 year old female. the Antibiotics wasn’t really working and I could not tolerate them for long due to severe side effects, There has been little if any progress in finding a cure or reliable treatment. Acupuncture eased my anxiety a bit. Our primary physician recommended me to www. kycuyuhealthclinic. com and their amazing Lyme treatment. My symptoms including chronic fatigue, joint pain and rash, disappeared after 4 months treatment! The herbal treatment is a sensation.. My Lyme disease is totally reversed! this is a herbal store that will be leaving it’s footprint in this world. I’m 54 and have never been this healthier
