The kids are racing for a cure and to help earn money for Japan relief.
We have been racing fools over here. The kids school had a jog-a-thon to help earn money for Japan. They merrily knocked on doors around the block hoping to get some sponsors for this great cause. Everyone was very sweet in emptying their pockets. Even a few quarters would make them nuts with excitement.
Jarom started strong
They had the kids wear a paper on their back and they would mark them as they ran by. In the end Bella had 49 laps which equals 4 miles!!
Spring-clad Susan had the fun job of making the tallies and sending them off with pep to keep them going.
Bella ran until the bitter end. Jarom stopped after 2 miles.
They were rewarded with fresh smoothies and yummy fruit. The school's goal was to raise 10,000 dollars. I'm hoping we beat it!!
Race for the CURE
It amazingly grows larger every year - people as far as you can see, all there for the very same loving, hopeful reason.
Orion was soooo super stoked to finally get the chance to run after standing on the sidelines for the last two races.
This speed demon always pulled ahead though
which broke his little heart time and time again
mad dash to the end
always fun to see people get creative
proudly making full use of his bra
This is Jarom and Bella's favorite part of the race... collecting all their free loot: ice cream, yogurt, water, scarf, bread, oranges, and of course candy.
This guy only wanted the balloon
It was quite a humbling sight to watch the survivors parade and be honored. So overwhelming.
happy to share our day with such amazing people
