Another St. Jude Run in the books!

Last Saturday we finished up another St. Jude Run. This year Jo joined in on the fun and great fun was had by all. We had a smaller team this year of only 11 from Avon joining the group from Macomb in our relay style run from Macomb to Peoria. However, we managed to raise $9000 for St. Jude in the process. Our friends and family were amazingly supportive in their efforts to sponsor us and support us with encouragement and prayers. It was an amazing experience to again spend the day with great people pushing ourselves and raising money for a great cause. I just can’t help but think about all the support St. Jude gives to children with cancer and their families. We made the trip with Jo running about 7 miles and me going about 9. She has now been nursing a bum ankle, but it is getting better. We finsihed the day off with a wonderful dinner and a presentation of a check to the St. Jude’s telethon for $95,000. It was a fabulou experience and we are already making plans for next year. This event marks the beginning of the end of summer. Next week we kick into Fat Steer Show and then the summer will officially be over.
