Run for Ruby!

This Run for Ruby has really given us something to work for, and look forward to. It has been a great event to plan, at the same time helping us heal. We are so thrilled that it is getting so close.

We wanted so badly to have the run in our hometown. When Ruby was home from the hospital, we were always outside, enjoying our community. We spent a lot of time at the lake, the parks, and walking on the trails. The run will be on a trial that we walked on with Ruby. It will also pass by our home.

There will be a 5k, and 10k races offered. We are going to have the Red Cross truck be there for those that would like to donate blood. Be the Match will also be there with their kits to screen potential donors for bone marrow. The goal of this annual run is to raise awareness about organ and tissue donation. With the help of our family, friends, and community, we can safe lives.

We are planning on having fun booths, great music, and a fun day celebrating Ruby’s first birthday!

    I am so happy for you all! What a GREAT wait to honor little Ruby’s life and to raise awareness for organ donation. I won’t be able to run in the race this year as our family just relocated to Boston, however, I have marked the run in my calendar and will be putting on my running shoes back here on that day and will be going on my own 5k run in honor of Ruby! I’ll be thinking about you all that day. Sending much love to your family…
