I am so overwhelmed tonight as I write about our last event. Everyone is probably wondering what took me so long to post something! It's been a pretty tough month or year I should say. We are still working through all the changes and pain that we have felt ever since our Jacob went to be with the Lord. It may not seem like it but every single task takes so much energy.
As you all may know, we had an awesome turnout at our first ever Family 5K! We could not believe how many runners we had, 180 to be exact , not too shabby for our very first run. I wanted to send a huge shout out to several groups that showed their support. American State Bank had several of there employees come out and Navarro High School had their whole track team! We also had some of the nurses, social workers, and art therapist from Children's Methodist Hospital/Children's Cancer and Blood Center from San Antonio.
It made us so happy to see everyone coming together as a community for a very good cause. A cause that is beyond ourselves. It was a time filled with so much giving, caring and remembering our loved ones.
A special family joined us as their little one is fighting cancer right now. It makes it a little easier when you have others or total strangers wanting to do anything to help.
Vendors were also available to share healthier alternatives.
TLU has a Love Your Melon chapter and they also were a part of our event. Love Your Melon is a great organization that also reaches out to families that are battling childhood cancer.
Be The Match was able to join us and 15 new donors were added to the bone marrow donor registry. That is huge! Thank you to all who stopped by and took the time to register.
Even though we got rained out at the end, the event was a huge success. We could not have done it without all the volunteers, sponsors, our family, friends, and of course everyone that donated.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
With your help we are able to keep our son's dream alive. His dream of helping others as they continue to fight.
A fight he knew all too well.
