Dear Friends, I just wanted to send you a quick reminder about Corbin's Fun Run on Saturday, July 21 at Burke Lake Park, starting 8am. The event includes a 5-mile run and a 1-mile walk. Organized in memory of my son, the purpose is to raise money to fight CHD. Proceeds go to Children's National Medical Center in Washington, DC and Inova Fairfax Hospital's Tender Hearts, a wonderful local support group for families with kids with CHD. Advance registration closes July 16, so if you plan on participating please register soon, preferably on-line instead of by mail. Visit Corbin's Fun Run to register. You can also register the day of the race starting at 6:45am (but we won't be able to guarantee that you'll get one of our cool T-shirts if you wait, so sign up early!) Hope to see you all there!
For all you Angel Heart Mom's out there Please email me a picture, name, dates of birth and passing of your child. We are going to be doing something special with the photos. I will email you to let you in on the secret! firstname.lastname@example.org
On the Home front: We had a really nice get away. Thanks to the Long Family for letting us use an amazing cabin. The James and Schaaf Families for tagging along, keeping us very busy, for the special memory box, the candle ceremony and balloon release. You are awesome friends. Aiden is on antibiotics for his leg and joints as they have found markers for lymes disease. He is doing well. Walking better and feeling much more like himself. He is not allowed to run, ride a bike or jump for several weeks. That has been our hardest struggle. Thanks for checking on us and come on out and walk with us (Notice I said walk! :) ) Terri and Crew
