Pictures From March 2011 Bar Fundraiser for Half Marathon Run

Today our daughter Lauren and her boyfriend John, ran the SunTrust Half Marathon in Washington DC in memory of our beloved Josh.  The bar fundraiser raised almost $3,000 which brings the total in Josh's fund to over $14,000!  Many, many thanks to all those who supported the fundraiser, either by your donation at Rumors Bar or by sending in your check.  Lauren will be coming home this summer to volunteer a few months of her time to the important task of finding programs that we can support with this money.

Because the timing of this race falls near the anniversary of Josh's death, we plan to continue the tradition.  I have already decided to join Lauren next year and will run either the half marathon again or the relay.  We hope others will join us.

Below is a slideshow of the event. We are so proud of Lauren and what she is doing to honor her brother's memory.
