Jeremy, Makenna and I are so very grateful for all the amazing people that worked together to make this 5K happen in honor of our sweet little man Jackson Silas. Jackson was my everything. He was Mommy’s little man that would tell me how beautiful I was and give me the most amazing hugs and kisses. We are all so devastated that Jackson is no longer with us, but we know that he is around us each and every day by the signs that he sends us. The birds, the feathers, the yellow butterfly, the worms in my garden and especially the warmth in my heart when I think of all the wonderful memories I had with him.
This first race in October 2016 was simply amazing. There were so many people working together to make this great day happen, and it happened so peacefully and beautifully on that sunny October morning! We will never be able to fully thank our foundation members for their leadership roles in making our first race such a HUGE success! With over 800+ racers it was a sight to see. Thank you all for coming out that day to continue Jackson’s legacy and to make sure that his name will continue on. Until next year my friends!
