Elly Trickett, deputy editor of PR Week, on behalf of the National Kidney Foundation, invites the PRSA Houston community to join a team of walkers in the National Kidney Foundation''s Southeast Texas chapter walk in Sam Houston Park on Sunday Sept. 18, 2005 to honor member and friend David Monroe.
Elly is the fiancée of David Monroe, a veteran of the Houston public relations community, who passed away on Sept. 26, 2004 from an aneurysm. He was 31. David was born with a kidney defect, and after several surgeries as a newborn, led a full and healthy life. David had a kidney transplant in his early 20s.
David worked at de La Garza Public Relations in Houston and then went in-house to work first for Himalaya, and then for Cornell Companies. During this time he also was active in PRSA Houston, and volunteered his PR services to the Southeast Texas chapter of the National Kidney Foundation.
To walk with Elly on Team David, please go to http://www.kidney.org/events/registration/register_walk.cfm?aid=407&&wid=109 and register, and enter “David Monroe” in the team name section. Then e-mail Elly at

For those who would like to contribute, but are unable to come to the walk, there is a dedicated fundraising Web site to making donations in David’s name, at http://www.justgiving.com/pfp/davidmonroe.
