IT'S OUR 4th RUNNIVERSARY and we're having a RUN-RAISER + TOT TROT
WHEN: Saturday, May 19th, 2018 @ 9:30am
WHERE: Northeast Metro Park 15500 Sun Light Near Way, Pflugerville, TX 78660
WHO: Proceeds from this year's race + silent auction go to Beautiful, 12 year old Ms. Emma Phillips
At the beginning of the year, Emma was a happy and healthy pre-teen. She began showing flu-like symptoms early in January, which quickly progressed into something worse. After being diagnosed with a virus in her brain called Necrotizing Encephalopathy, she was admitted to Dell Children’s Hospital. Characterized by respiratory and/or gastrointestinal infections that lead to high fevers, seizures, and alteration of consciousness, Necrotizing Encephalopathy wreaks havoc on multiple body systems.
Miraculously, Emma’s hospital stay was shortened by her rapid progress toward recovery. She still has a long way to go, however, in terms of at-home rehabilitation through physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. She will also need help to catch up on the school work that she missed! The funds from this year’s race and silent auction will go toward Emma’s daily therapies (PT/OT/Speech), aid in hospital fees, and go toward her Homebound studies.
