Mindy’s Halloween Cookers – A Heartwarming Story
Friday, November 8th, 2013
Mindy is the Community Manager at Raven Hill, which is a Condor apartment community in Burnsville, and she has been battling kidney disease for some time. Last month the Condor Corporation staff stood in solidarity with Mindy by walking with her in the Annual Kidney Walk held at the Thompson-Reuters campus in Eagan, MN. They had an awesome team name and costumes to boot! They dubbed themselves “Mindy’s Halloween Cookers” and had all sorts of fun dressing up for the event. Staff from each of our apartment communities in the Twin Cities, plus members of Mindy’s family, took part. They gathered in the Lexington Heights Party Room to get all dressed up in their costumes before they headed out to the walk.
The National Kidney Foundation, which is the sponsor of the event, says this on their website:
“With your help, we raised $262,000 to fight against kidney disease. Your contribution will help fund our initiatives in awareness, prevention and treatment. Without your dedication, enthusiasm and support, we truly could not accomplish all that we do.”
Everyone had a great time and the weather for the event was perfect! The team theme of Halloween Cookers was creative and prompted some fun costumes. Mindy would like to thank everyone who came out for the walk; she was encouraged by everyone’s enthusiasm and felt loved by their show of support.
Of course, we have to share with you some awesome photos from the walk! Enjoy!
