Max SkyWALKer and the Jedi Giraffes

5 years ago

 in a galaxy far far away a boy was born

it was discovered that the force was strong with this one. 

All short necked giraffes are to report to the jedi training facility (Marymoor Park) to walk for wishes! 

 as we walk for wishes in 2014!  

Max lost his ability to walk 4 years ago and it is a skill we will never take for granted - 
 just try and hold him back! 

If you can't walk with us consider helping us reach our goal to fund a wish that will provide 
Hope, Strength, and Joy to another deserving family! 

The pressure is on to keep our title as Most Spirited Team!

Triple Threat

This ER Visit started with a fever of 103 and went as high as 104.5 before getting admitted, after much testing he came out with a diagnosis of RSV, Pneumonia, and Rhinovirus (common cold).

His vital signs were all over the place and hard to keep under control.  Racing heart rates one night, low oxygen levels and dropping heart rates the next night, kept this mom on her feet.

Luckily our Hematology Oncology Crew and Therapy teams were all quick to respond and helped make this 5 day hospital stay very productive and a much quicker return to baseline.

Say cheese for the Chest X-Ray

Take good care of my best buddy


I'm feeling better let me outta here!
I know how to unhook all the cords myself, I don't need a nurse.

Walk for Wishes - Max and The Super Short Necked Giraffes

 A huge thank you to all you who donated so generously for this year's Walk for Wishes, benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation and for those of you who actually joined us in the wet walk.  We were blown away by the support and more than quadrupled our fundraising goal.  While the weather didn't cooperate for us it didn't seem to dampen the excitement for the reason we were there.   When we had to choose a super hero team, without any hesitation Max wanted to be the Super Short Necked Giraffes, so we embraced it and had lots of fun!  We thought we were up against some tough competition with Purple Underwater Flying Zombie Cows, however Max and his super snaps led us to victory for the award for Most Team Spirit! 

Our super hero staffer - Janine! 

All the Honored Wish Heroes!

The thunder, lightening and monsoon couldn't hold the mighty giraffes back!

Snacking along the walk...

Winner for Most Team Spirit! Max and the Super Short Necked Giraffes
