It’s that time of the year again for the Race for Wishes 5K. We love the Make-a-Wish Foundation and as most of you know, Gabby was blessed with a wish trip to Disney World and Universal Studios during the Fall of 2007 before her brain surgery. It meant the world to us and literally was a dream. Still to this day it was our only family vacation to Disney World theme parks and it gave us a whole week to get away and enjoy our family time before facing some very difficult times that ultimately changed all of our lives for ever.
We participate in the Race for Wishes one mile fun run with all wish kids as well as the 5K. Usually Gabby stays with my mom back at the finish line while the rest of us complete the 5K if she doesn’t feel like she can walk it all. We also try to attend the other Make-a-Wish Foundation events throughout the year. We just love all the amazing teams members of our local chapter here in Fort Worth. We have went to events such as the Thunderbird Air Show with Make-a-Wish and we also try to volunteer when we can by doing things like Toy Room Makeover where Noah even learned to volunteer.
This year we are hoping to have a larger team. We’d love for all local DFW friends and family to join us on our Team Gabby’s Dream. We invite anyone and everyone to join our team. Don’t live close but would love to join? Great, go for it and I’ll send you your t-shirt in the mail. We also love any donations in support, even $1 helps and is very much appreciated.
We look forward to the walk on March 26th and can’t wait to share photos from our day with everyone!
Do you participate in any charity events, runs or walks?
