D.C. Walk of Hope
“The committed volunteers of the D.C. Walk of Hope and the more than 400 walkers will join together to symbolize the infertility journey. RESOLVE exists so no one with infertility “walks” alone,” said RESOLVE President/CEO Barbara Collura.

Shady Grove Fertility is a Platinum Sponsor of RESOLVE’s 2015 D.C. Walk of Hope to raise awareness and funding for the infertility community. The Walk of Hope, which occurs in cities across the nation from Los Angeles to Chicago to Washington, D.C., is RESOLVE’s signature fundraising event.

To date, the 2015 D.C. Walk of Hope has raised over $55,000 to support RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association programming, such as support groups, educational content, public awareness initiatives, and advocacy efforts to ensure that family building options are available to everyone. Over 400 people are expected to attend the Walk of Hope this weekend.

At Shady Grove Fertility, we walk to show solidarity with the infertility community. Hope is a precious emotion and defines what we do and how we do it. The greatest technological and scientific advancements have no value if one does not have hope.

“The Walk of Hope represents Shady Grove Fertility’s participation in a national movement—a movement to tell the community that they are not alone and to inspire hope; a movement to make friends and family aware of what those with infertility feel; and a movement to raise money to help individuals have access to build their family and for legislators to consider expanding and creating greater coverage,” said Patty Stull, VP of Strategic Development at Shady Grove Fertility. With 1 in 8 couples experiencing infertility, it is important for the community to come together and present a unified front, spreading awareness and letting couples know that they are not alone.

“The committed volunteers of the D.C. Walk of Hope and the more than 400 walkers will join together to symbolize the infertility journey. RESOLVE exists so no one with infertility “walks” alone,” said RESOLVE President/CEO Barbara Collura.

The 2015 D.C. Walk of Hope will take place on Saturday, June 6, 2015, at 10 a.m. at National Harbor, MD. To join Shady Grove Fertility’s teams or to donate to RESOLVE initiatives, visit the Walk of Hope registration pages for teams Shady Grove Fertility and K Street Cares.
