Enchanted Rock...Rowan's "Climb for a Cause"!

Well, here they are...the pictures from Rowan's recent hike to the top of Enchanted Rock. 
He climbed in honor of Kidd Kraddick this time, wearing A Kidd Kraddick in the morning t-shirt, complete with Kidd's sign-off and signature. 

For those of you who don't know, Enchanted Rock's Summit Trail is 425 feet straight up to the top.


Rowan had only been out of the hospital a couple days when he made this climb,
so he had a little trouble breathing and had to stop a few times...


but in the end, he made it, and we got some amazing pictures!


Rowan is my hero, for sticking it out, giving it his all, and overcoming...just like he always does!

We took some of the best photos from the day
and created photo cards in memory of Kidd Kraddick. 
Here is one example:

If you would like one of the photo cards personally autographed by Rowan and mailed to you,
please mail in your donation to the address below:
Rowan Windham
420 River Chase Drive
New Braunfels, Texas 78132
*Make sure your checks are made out to "Kidd's Kids" with Rowan's name in the memo section. 
*Make sure to include a return address so Rowan can mail you back your signed photo card
 and he will add your check to his total donation, which he will mail in to Kidd's Kids. 
100% of the proceeds go to Kidd's Kids.  Rowan doesn't keep a dime!
Rowan will then reveal his total donation amount to the KKITM Crew and the Director of Kidd's Kids, while in New Orleans in July for the Kidd Kraddick Memorial Golf Tournament.
This will be the 4th Annual Charity Golf Tournament hosted by Chuck & Mindi Hartzog,
once again benefiting Kidd's Kids. 
Please mail in your donations by the first week of July, so Rowan can autograph all the photos,
get them in the mail to you all, and process all donations before leaving for New Orleans.
Please share this post with your friends and family.  It is for a great cause!
 If they would like more information about the charity or Rowan's involvement,
they can go to the Kidd's Kids website and/or read some of my previous posts here on the blog
about our Kidd's Kidd's Trip in 2011, about Rowan's previous fundraising efforts for Kidd's Kids,
 and about kids passing last year while at the golf tournament...
and the profound impact that had on Rowan.
Your support is greatly appreciated! You can help Rowan, help Kidd's Kids,
change the lives of chronic and terminally ill children and their families
by giving 50 of them each year, the vacation of a lifetime- to Disney World
for 5 days of what Kidd called "suspended reality".
Thank you...and remember...
"Keep looking up, 'cause that's where it all is!"

Love, Rowan
