Kristy formed the first Prayin' and Slayin' team to walk in the NW Sarcoma Foundation's Dragon Slayer event in 2013. She wanted to raise money for the Foundation and spread awareness about this rare, but deadly cancer. Her Prayin' and Slayin' team had over 100 participants! In her memory, we walked again in 2014, 2015, and 2016 and will continue for years to come. Our team has raised over $9,000 for NW Sarcoma Foundation over the 4 years! This money helps sarcoma patients who have finanacial needs and furthers research on finding a cure. Thank you so much for all of your support for this worthy organization!
The Make-A-Wish foundation was very near to Kristy's heart. She fell in love with their mission when she interned there in college, where she helped put on the very first Walk for Wishes in 2010, and continued to be one of their volunteers, even when she was ill. A few months into Kristy's diagnosis in 2012, she organized a team for their annual walk in September. After she passed, we decided we would walk in her memory.
Kristy touched many hearts all over the world. Even though she is gone, her travelling spirit still exists in each of us and it's important to take her with us wherever we go. Whenever you are on your next adventure, put a sunflower sticker somewhere and post a photo here. If you find something that reminds you of Kristy, please take a picture or share your story on this page.

We created stickers with Kristy's initials on them so that her bright yellow spirit can be seen all over. When you're posting sunflower stickers around, any sunflower stickers will do. But if you would like more of the KHL decals, send a request in for more stickers and we will mail you a couple! Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
