Lots of runners and walkers!

We are getting lots of runners and walkers registering for the race! Be one of them and sign up today.

See these two smiling kids? This was taken at an event for Sean over the summer and I am so glad Sean's mom snapped this photo.  Still at CHOP, Sean seems to be on the rebound from his very recent stem-cell transplant with climbing counts, less pain and more energy.  Our family knows all too well what it is like to spend a month in the hospital watching your child in pain and worrying about them.  It is an alternate universe, a cave of machines and beeping iv pumps, constant coming and goings of doctors and nurses, time crawls and it feels like you will never be able to leave.  But Sean will go home soon and we will be here cheering him on and supporting his parents and brother.
Join us for a great day where you will make a difference you can see, in the lives of a local family.
Emilia is in remission with a mission! See you there!

Are you coming to the 2nd annual Helping Hands 4 Emilia 5k to benefit Sean Bartolucci??

I am hearing from many people in the community that they are coming to the 5K run/walk on Saturday, November 8.
The first five people that register today will get a t-shirt from last year's race delivered by me and Emilia.
Sign up before the price goes up from $25/$15 to $30/$20  and be guaranteed a shirt at this year's run.  Join us to celebrate Emilia's remission while we pay it forward to a family in Camp Hill whose son, Sean Bartolucci, is battle neuroblastoma.  Sean and his parents are currently at CHOP because Sean had a stem cell transplant this week. He expects to be there two more weeks and what a great homecoming it will be to see the community support from all of you!

Stay tuned for more updates on Emilia and Sean and for the winners of the t-shirts.
