Thank You, Rally Foundation

You may already know about this sweet foundation that raises money for childhood cancer research (I have a link to them on the side of our blog). A couple of their athletes biked across the country this summer in honor of Joseph. And all of their fundraising efforts go specifically to childhood cancer research.

I just found out that they are doing a "race in place" (biking) fundraiser this weekend in Nashville and they have a "Team Joe P."! I just got an email and I was so touched that they would have a team in Joe P.'s honor. So, I wanted to let you all know about it. You can visit the team's webpages to check on their progress and even donate if you like.

I know many of you have run races in Joseph's honor (St. Jude Marathon this past fall was one) and I cannot tell you how much that means to us. Thank you!

And thanks so much for all your work, Rally Foundation. Go Team Joe P.!!

Gillian,
Will you all be making an appearance at the event?
If so, do you know about what time?
