We are quickly approaching Matthew’s first birthday. It seems impossible that his birthday is here already, but at the same time, it has been an incredibly eventful year. We would like to invite all of you to celebrate Matthew’s first year with us. To celebrate, we will be participating in a fundraising run at our favorite hospital (“Matthew’s Hospital”), Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters. This event has something for everyone. There are fun runs for the kids, fun runs for the adults, and an 8K run. I’m not a runner. I hate running, in fact. To be honest, I don’t think that I’ve ever run an entire mile. But this year, I’m going to do the 8K. I’m determined to do it. We want to thank the hospital that saved Matthew by giving back. If you are a runner, or are looking for a reason to train, or just like to walk, please consider joining our team on the run. The run will take place in Norfolk, VA, which is a short drive away from Virginia Beach. You could make a weekend of it! Doesn’t a Saturday morning run followed by a lazy afternoon on the beach sound great?
We will post more as we finalize our team and get more information. In the mean time, check out CHKD’s page on the event and dust off your running shoes!
