Ethan's Run 2011 was a WONDERFUL day! We were able to raise $10,000 to donate to families battling CHD's. I can't believe the generosity of so many. The money raised was made possible by runners, walkers, children playing, people eating a yummy pancake breakfast, from generous donations, sponsors,an eagle scout, and from the MANY wonderful volunteers who helped plan and carry out the event. Thank you sooooooo much!
I had to keep my sunglasses on the whole time. . . I didn't want anyone to see the tears that kept creeping up everytime I saw someone walk by with a shirt dedicated to a CHD warrior and/or angel. At one point I looked over at the kids zone, and all the fun that was occurring there, and I whispered "Happy Birthday" to Ethan. What a beautiful day to celebrate his life, to increase CHD awareness, and to raise funds for a great cause. I was also very impressed with the class of athletes participating in the event. There is a picture of the 1/2 Marathon overall male winner. He and his brother finished in 1hr and 18 min. Wow! Again, thank you to all who came out!

If you have time, please check out my Friend Liz Dennison's blog. It's under "Angel Jake". He lost his HLHS battle right before Ethan was born. She gave Ethan one of the super soft, comfy blankets she started making for heart families. She is doing a drive to raise money for more special blankies to give to more special babies!!
