Miles for Hope 2011

Saturday, July 23 our family, along with a great group of extended family and friends participated in a 5K run/1mile Family Fun Run with Miles For Hope to help raise money for brain tumor research, raising awareness of brain tumors and to help provide travel for brain cancer/tumor patients and there families. (if you want to read Molly's brain tumor story click HERE)

Team Molly! This great group of family and friends came out to walk/run with us!

Cousin Cassie and Aunt Beth ran the 5K, and Molly's Aunt Beth raised over $300 for Miles for Hope!

Molly's race number!

Our Survivor!

Molly and her Cousin Maisy!

After the race, any brain tumor survivors went up front and Molly got a backpack full of goodies. The three survivors were all children! We are definitely very lucky to have Molly still here and doing amazing! We feel very blessed!


  1. I am so glad that the race went so well. Sorry I could not make it, we left for vacation that morning. Count me in next year for sure!

    P.S. I love the new pictures of the girls on the side. They are so cute!

  2. We are so happy that you and your team showed up for the event and are supporters of Miles For Hope! Our focus is only on treatments that provide for a better quality of life and actually make progress in the treatment of this disease, unlike other organizations that continue to fund the same research that hasn't changed things in over 30 years!

    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts in joing us to change the face of this for others that will be affected in the future, and we can't wait to see what 2012 brings!

  3. That is awesome! I don't think they have that here...maybe but I haven't ever heard of it before. I may have to look online to see if they have one here we could participate in. :)

    Glad it was fun! I bet Molly was excited to get her back pack!
