Today's post is about an event the family and I attended on August 20th. It was the first annual Run 4 Everett, a 5K, 10K and 1 mile family fun run. I wish I could say I did the 10K, but I am not a runner. I stuck to the 1 mile walk with the man and my girls. We had a blast! But we weren't just there to have a good time, we were also there to support a wonderful family. Dave and Steph Ralich's son Everett was born still on August 11, 2010. The run was organized by the two of them in remembrance of their son and to raise money for Kate Cares, an organization that supports families who have experienced a still birth. I am in total awe of the way Dave and Steph were able to channel their grief into something so positive. More than 400 people participated in the inaugural event, and they raised more than $10,000 for Kate Cares. It was amazing! You can read more about the Ralich's story here.
On your marks, get set, and GO!
