Ellie's Race!!!

We are so excited! The Utah Hero Foundation chose Ellie to do a race and a silent auction to benefit our family! The race will be held on September 18, 2010. It will be held in Farmington, Utah. For any of you who want to come and run, walk, stroll or roll in our 5k, we would LOVE to see you. There also will be a silent auction and booths after the race to also participate in. We feel so blessed to know and love so many of you. I can say that along with our Hevenly Father, so many of you have carried us through these past few years. We truly could not have done it without you. When people ask us how we are dealing with everything, my first thought is we have not done it alone. It is hard to express the love and the gratitude that we have felt through out this journey. This has taught me many valuable life lessons that will carry us through this life and the next. We have met so many new friends and been reconnected with old ones because of our hardships. It is amazing and at times overwhelming to know that you are cared for and prayed for by so many.

So feel free to grab a button and copy it to your blog. Also a few have expressed how they can help with the race or auction. You may contact the people from the Hero Foundation if your interested in donating an item or basket. My daughter said it best, "I hate that Ellie is a Hopekid because she is sick but at the same time, I love that she is a Hopekid because it has made our family special!"


  1. How exciting! We will be there!
    -It was so good to see you last week! :)

  2. I am so there! Also I put this on my blog so that my friends can join in the fun! I wanted to know how you put that button code on the sidebar! I am trying to do that as well and it's not working... maybe I am doing something wrong? Email me at to let me know!

  3. I am so sad! We will be out of town this weekend :( I would have loved to come! Would you like me to share this race information with the nurses at PCMC? Let me know- Thanks!
