Oops, we did it again!

How do you top an event that drew a big crowd and raised $20,000 in it's first year??

You do it again.

I'm proud to say that Miles of Hope to Cure Diabetes has raised over $40,000 in the past two years to donate to diabetes research. It's amazing to me that our little town of just 7,000 people has once again surpassed our expectations...with 100 runners for the 5k this year, and over 300 walkers registered, we managed to once again reach our goal and then some. The generosity and support we've gotten is truly overwhelming!

Of course, the best part is to see our kids happy faces as they enjoy a day to feel loved and supported by friends, family, and the community. I'm pretty sure Leah said "Thanks for doing this, mom!" at least 10 times that day.

Here's to HOPE, and to getting bigger and better! And to kicking some diabetes butt.
