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!
