Thank you to our sponsors
It’s not easy to run a 5K when you’re fighting back tears. This was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. The Sisters came out and held signs, waved pom poms, and rang bells to support all the runners/walkers. I thought about how much the Sisters have given to me over my life and the gratitude I felt was overwhelming. There couldn’t be a more beautiful place for a 5K. What a great event!

We had a very good time at your 5K this past weekend. You have a beautiful place there and we see that you are really helping people who need it. Hopefully, this small donation will be helpful to help others that are less fortunate than we are. God bless you all and thank you.
