What’s a “Color Run?”
This year marks our 12th annual Haley’s 4th of July Run for a Reason. This is an extra special occasion! In celebration of the class of 2016, the year Haley would have graduated from high school, we are hosting our first “Color Run” where participants can choose to be splattered with colored, non-toxic powder as they take off for the 5-mile run or 2-mile family walk. It’s the latest running craze that’s sweeping the country. This year’s event is sure to be a blast!
RUN. WALK. LAUGH. REMEMBER.
Still, this is the 16-year anniversary of Haley’s passing away and Haley’s parents still do not know the cause. Countless other parents share a similar struggle. We’re asking for your generosity by participating in this year’s Haley’s 4th of July Run for a Reason. Thanks to you, our events have raised more than $250,000for the Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC) Foundation! Proceeds will go toward funding crucial medical research so that no new families will have to endure the pain of losing a child. You’ll have fun, get some exercise, and take home a great t-shirt.You’ll also personally contribute to a worthy and urgent cause.
