Wow, right? Thank you to Courtney Lynch (and her company and employees) for this beautiful flyer! I think she did a great job! And thank you to Paige Stevens Photography for the beautiful pictures of Harlie! I will post the rest soon. They are just beautiful!!
This year the raffle and 5k have been combined into one day. And Lynda has been working her magic getting lots of fun stuff organized. She even got a firetruck lined up to be there. There are going to be lots of good raffle prizes - I'll post a list soon.
We got new t-shirts designed and ordered, and they should be in any day now. I'm so excited! You can order them when you register for the 5k, or you can buy them the day of the event.
Here is the link to register. http://www.racerpal.com/races/WeHeartHarlie.html
Harlie's school is so incredibly supportive of her. It really is amazing. The PTA passed out papers for the students to cut out hearts and decorate them. Then they post them on the wall in the school - Hearts for Harlie.
They are going to do this through the month of May. Isn't that the sweetest thing? I want to share a Facebook comment from a friend of mine, Beckie:
What a thoughtful project. So good for Harlie, but such a learning experience for the other children. Kudos to teachers who see beyond the "book learning" and take advantage of such a powerful example that can't be taught any other way!"
Lynda runs the We Heart Harlie Facebook page. And she's been working on the route for the 5k. Since we will be running on a main road, she's had to get the help of some Henrico County police officers to help with traffic control. I really don't know how she finds the time to do all that she does. (And she leads a Daisy troop, too!)
She also wrote this story and submitted it to Richmond Family Magazine. Isn't she something? Truly! I don't know how in the world I'm ever going to be able to thank her enough. I think her husband is really looking forward to May 19th - when she doesn't have to spend so much time and energy on the Holton family! Lynda and Rich - thank you!!
