Chino Hills 5K Run/Walk Challenge!

I am so honored to be a part of the wonderful people in my circle. Even people I don't know very well, continue to astonish me with their offering of help with Gavin.

Troy and I are board members for Chino National Little League. We have met so many nice, genuine people who have taken such a liking to Gavin and his well being. Last week, what was offered to us what nothing less than wonderful. One of our fellow board members, who is a sheriff, offered an idea for help for Gavin's fund.

There is an annual 5K Run/Walk Challenge that takes place in Chino Hills. This race benefits the Explorer Program of the San Bernardino Sheriff's Dept., Chino Hills Station (Explorer Post 503). They are a non-profit organization.

The Sheriff's Dept offered to co-sponsor Gavin for this event! This is the first time they have ever co-sponsored somebody. I am so ecstatic of the support for our son. It is truly a validation of the good-hearted people out there, and what a wonderful community we are a part of.

A portion of every entry will go towards Gavin's fund.

Whether you are a runner, a walker or just like to cheer for your friends and family, please come out for a day of FUN! It will be a fun day! We will have a booth, Gavin will be there and I would love all of you runners, walkers out there to come on out!

I have the registration forms on me. I should be getting some emailed to me as well in the next few days. If you would like a form(s), please let me know! We are trying to do as many pre-registers as possible before the event.
