Wow - Over 300!

We are so excited to announce that we have OVER 300 registered runners/walkers for our first Halloween Hustle 5K! We had hopes of reaching this number but didn't think we'd hit that mark. It's amazing to see how much support and love that has just poured out from this community and beyond. We've seen contributions coming in from out of state and it just goes to show how much people really care and want to support someone in need.

We will still take new registrations at the event, however we can't guarantee a t-shirt at this point.

A Huge Thank you to all of our runners & walkers that are planning on coming out Saturday. We have a lot of parents that have worked hard to make this event happen with long hours given towards making this a successful event. We have amazing contributors that have generously given to make this successful.

Lots of ways to help!

Sometimes Helping Hands 4 Emilia is actually getting our hands dirty for a good cause! A few of us were able to do a sneak attack and weed the banks & flower beds for Mom & Dad so that they could keep focusing on their kids! We had a great time doing it too.

------------ ------------  ------------

There are also other people out in the communities that adore our sweet Emilia. Look at this facebook page of two girls that have a passionate and caring heart to help Emilia. 

They made Bracelets by Rainbow Loom to help Emilia. 

We live in a great neighborhood!

Let's make this Bumpy Road a little smoother for Emilia & her family!

Our friend Emilia is a fun & energetic girl who has just been recently diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma bone cancer. Emilia has many friends, that want to do something more for her than just say "We're thinking about you!". With a girl that is so sweet and fun it's hard to sit back and do nothing.

Ewing's sarcoma is a primary bone cancer that affects mainly children and adolescents. It's one of a group of cancers known collectively as the Ewing sarcoma family of tumors -- ESFT or sometimes just EFT. It's the second most common bone cancer in children, but it's also relatively uncommon. It accounts for only 1% of all childhood cancers. Although it can occur at any age, it very rarely occurs in adults over the age of 30. Many illnesses can cause the same symptoms as Ewing's sarcoma, it's sometimes missed in its early stages. - Source: WebMD
