Jog for Julie

The weather was perfect and the turnout was awesome. More than 70 adults and over 30 teens ran the 5k. Numerous walkers participated. From infants to seniors, the atmosphere was one of generosity, kindness and love.

CenterPoint Church allowed us to use the facility. Grace Church printed our sponsorship forms and entry sheets.

Item donations from: Eagle Mountain Mercantile, Goodman’s, Springs Resort and Spa, River Pointe, The Nail Room, Happy Trails, The Hub, Martie’s Mercantile, Heather Rose Jewelry, Sarah Jackson Jewelry, Jayne Marie Photography, Josh Keating Woodwork, Liberty Theater and Malt Shoppe. Individuals donated items they had purchased. Volunteers manned the silent auction tables. Bake sale and lunch items were donated and all treats were baked, cooked and sold by volunteers. More volunteers worked setup, takedown, water station, registration and cleanup. Others had positions as spotters, time keepers, taggers and recorders. Dell Mellette informed many of their antioxidant score. Rylie Knapp pleased many with her face painting. Rebellious Abandon played contemporary Christian Music. Many participants were backed by generous sponsors. We had many anonymous givers, including a gentleman who donated a horse trailer. All proceeds from every activity went to help Julie Knapp pay for her medical treatment.

Julie will be going to Switzerland later this month for treatment. Thank you, everyone.
