Joe P's Rally Run






The first annual Joe P's Rally Run was a huge success! We had terrible rain the night before and early that morning, but it cleared up just in time for the race. Thank you to the 150+ people who ventured out in the cold to support this event. Special thanks to Matt Peabody, Jon Holt, Clay Perry, and Joey Northern and the Rally Foundation for working so hard to organize this. And more special thanks to all the sponsors (E+ Cancer Care, Girtman & Associates, Moe's Southwest Grill, Big Move Games, Advanced Network Solutions, Pure Barre, Dick's Sporting Goods, and Journal Communications) who gave so generously and to all of you who donated. And thank you to Veggie Tales for the awesome umbrellas for all the kiddos. There were many people who worked so hard and gave of time and resources, so if I missed you, please know we appreciate your help and hard work.

We are overwhelmed at so much generosity. Together, we raised $22,300 for childhood cancer research. Praise God! All the money will go to the Rally Foundation which will put it towards pediatric brain cancer research specifically.

I am only posting a few pictures now but we had a great photographer there (thanks Lesli and Amber!!) so I will be posting her pictures soon.

Thank you again to all of you who came out and all of you who supported us. We are so grateful. See you next year!

Just FYI, the Joe P race shirt is my favorite race shirt I've ever owned. Good work whoever designed that one! The race was a blast!
