Hi everyone! I just wanted to up date you on the race.

For those of you who knew that I was going to participate in a 5 K  race for Tony, a young man of 16 years of age that needs a life saving Liver transplant.  The race was yesterday 5/31/08.

Here are some of the things that happened.

1. We had over 232 people to participate in the race.

2. Tony was at the race and he sounded the air horn to get things under way.

3. The fastest runner finished the race in 17 minutes and 17 seconds.

4. Prizes were donated by local businesses.

5. Over 10 thousand dollars was raised for Tony.

6. Everyone had fun!

Now that the race is over ! I feel as though we just got started. Tony is a very high spirited young man. He is very positive even though alot of the odds are against him. Tony needs help from friends and even strangers that will later become his friends.

  I felt very blessed to be able to help in this event for Tony. I am an Asthma patient and if I get over heated sometimes it will throw me into an attack. This did not happen yesterday! I plan to continue to help with Tony's mission. I have always felt as though it was my calling to help others and I can't think of a better cause than to maybe help save someone's life.

I know you had told me about this over the phone, but I just wanted to let you know again just how proud i am to have such a loving Mom. You set the standard for what other people should be doing with their free time. I don't love you just for being my Mom, I love you for all of the selfless acts you preform for others. Keep up the amazing work, you are a true inspiration!

Love, Sissy
