Just an update... We're up to around 75 guests... but only 4 HG sufferers and their families.. just wanted to give more details...

The details are all coming together now, and the guest list is growing. I know it is hard for people to travel, but in case you are interested, here are the details. Please send me your e-mail address so I may send out the proper invites once they have been made up.

We will kick off the walk/run June 24th from London to Toronto, Ontario Canada.
Come and welcome us by meeting us at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto upon our completion, on Friday, June 29th... we are working on getting media coverage of some kind.

125 guests... still counting. I'm working on getting some of the doctors who did or did not treat me, to attend. Fingers crossed.
We have a group sending us off when we depart from London to cheer us on. And then a welcoming group to wait for us at Sick Kids on June 29th. We will be covered locally in London when we leave, and am working on coverage still to film our arrival. Fingers crossed for that too! I'll just run by the cameras yelling 'Hyperemesis Gravidarum!!!' Over and over again. (Maybe not. Then they really would think we are crazy. :lol: :))
