Lovin' Life 5K

It's hard to believe that on June 4th of this year marks my 20th anniversary of my life saving amputation. I had less than a 3% chance to live even after they took my leg but my family had hope and faith in my survival. And now 20 years later I'm still Lovin' Life!! For the anniversary we wanted to do something big! And we thought what's better than to raise money for a charity?? My sister came up with the amazing idea to have a 5K Run/Walk and then we have a wonderful charity that we are so excited about! This run/walk is for those of us that can to help those who can't. There are many of us out there that can't live that normal every day life....but this charity help us realize that we aren't alone in this world, that there is no such thing as "normal", and that we are wonderful just the way we are! Our money will be going to a charity that is very dear to mine and my family's heart called Camp Firefly. It's an all expenses paid, fun-filled, week long camp for terminally/seriously ill children and their families. It's a week away from hospitals, doctors, nurses and treatments and where you can try to be a "normal" kid for a while. Plus you get to meet other families who know what you're going through! I went to this camp 19 years ago and it was one of the best weeks of my life! This is also Camp Firefly's 20th anniversary so I thought it was a perfect fit!! If you're interested in finding out more about the camp you can visit their website About the 5k....

A new year usually means new beginnings. We set goals for ourselves and try to become better people. And there is nothing wrong with that at all. But if you're like me it's pretty much the same goals
