On Saturday September 13th at the Shops at Legacy in Plano, there is going to be a 5K and a 1 mile fun run to raise money for a charity called Heroes For Children. ( www.heroesforchildren.org) This charity literally gives money to the families of children battling cancer in the state of Texas. It was started by two moms who lost their children to cancer at the same hospital in which Joseph died, one of them in the very room Joseph stayed the majority of his time there. They came to our rescue more than once while Joseph was sick.
I wanted to do this last year but just was not emotionally ready.
I am creating Team Joseph for the 5K. We will be making Tshirts for our team and walking/running in both the 5K and the one mile fun run. This event is very family friendly, complete with bounce houses, face painting, family activities and a concert after the race by Eddie Coker, a well known local celebrity amoung children.
You are invited to join Team Joseph for Heroes for Children 5K Run/Walk presented by WFAA.
You can register for this event at:
If you are not in the area or cannot attend, but would like to help us reach our goal of earning $5000 for Heroes For Children, please make your donation at:
This is a VERY worthy cause and the hope and help they give Texas families is so very important.

Thanks all! I would love to see some of you do this with me. Most of you were here all through his illness and death. It would mean the world to me and be a wonderful first foray into helping the world know a generous soul named Joseph was here and left his mark on your hearts!
