St Jude Trike-A-Thon this Friday

We are in the middle of raising money for St. Jude This is last year at the Trike-A-Thon... We were honored to have Brady at Wee School with us, so Dalton rode in honor of Brady. He and his family spent a ton of time at St. Jude. Here is Dalton and her decorated bike posing with Brady... he and and borrowed tractor are so over having their picture take by this point! LOL From what I understand we raised over $8,000 last year. Riding is hard work and you need a snack afterwards.. The kids were served milk, orange juice and donuts.




Here is the sign that hung where you drive up to let you kids off every morning.... Everyone really stepped to the plate this past year!



To know this little fellow was really down and out at one time I wish you would just look at the look on his face peddling that tractor! Can you imagine the wonderful feeling his parents hearts just watching him be able to participate in this!?!? Brady is in school this year and having a blast!




Dalton rode in memory of Angel Jake Owen Raborn. It has been a little over 2 years now since he earned his angel wings, and let me tell you something.. his family spent LOTS of time at St. Jude and have lots of people they consider family there. If you ever need to speak to any one about St. Jude Jake's parents and Brady's parents could answer any questions you may have. Jake's parents have been very blessed, and are now able to do something for others... Let's just say that he is being honored BIG TIME by his family helping others! I will do another post on that later.


Above is Dalton's sign in memory of Jake. He loved green M & M's so that is where we came up with our decor.



Dalton has a blast as well as all the other kids!






Here is the other side of her Brady sign.







Check out Brady again. I bet he went around that track 500 times...








He was the first one behind the police car.. check out the sign on the back of his helmet.

What a great day you're gonna have! And, what a fine person you are to raise money for St. Jude's! You're setting a fine example for your children.

Some members of our church family, who are also our neighbors, have been through a battle with their youngest child. Little Westin Dietz knows all about St. Jude. He's doing great now! Check out his website:

We are sending our money directly to St. Jude this week, in honor/memory of ALL of these terrific kids.
