This past weekend was the High 5 to the Sky 5K and it was amazing! Amazing for these reasons:
1. We have the best friends and family in the world. Overwhelmed by the amount of support & love shown during this event! Thank you all again for everything, we feel truly blessed.
2. It was such a special memory maker and tribute to Dad as we celebrated his life. I just know he was smiling down on us that morning as we joined together at one of his favorite places.
3. Enough money was raised to help provide about 50 children with clean water for one full year through Project 7’s Quench the Thirsty charity. Dad would LOVE this – he had a huge heart for kids. For every t-shirt sold and race entry registered- all the proceeds went to this awesome organization.THANK YOU for helping to “change the score” for these kids!
4. Addi & Kam had an absolute blast. Addi ran/walked the entire 3.1 miles. That is a lot, especially for a 4 year old! Of course, she thought the whole race was for her and expected everyone to cheer for her at the end. She ran her little heart out and had tears in her eyes when she finished! Yesterday, she asked me, “Was Poppy proud of me for running the race?” Yep, no doubt he was, sweet girl.
Special thanks goes out to the following people/businesses:
Sarah Hardin- race day photographer
Clay & Lauren Hightower- managing the registration table & getting bananas from Brookshire’s
