Our family this year is participating in Ethan's Run, a fundraiser held each February to support the Eller Heart Family Council. Under the direction of the Congenital Heart Foundation, this group helps provide information, support and financial assistance to families with babies born with heart defects.
Unfortunately our family wasn't able to benefit from these services, but we have chosen to support this wonderful cause in honor of our sweet Ella. Ethan's Run was started to remember Ethan Skidmore, a little guy who was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. After enduring many surgeries he left this life at six months of age. His sweet momma, Heidi, has been a support and comfort to our family.
So go HERE to learn more about Ethan's Run, and if you live locally, we'll see you on February 12th at the race!!
P.S. just so ya' know.......most of us "weekend warriors" are participating in the fun run.......
P.P.S. there's lots of other fun family stuff going on that morning at Ethan's Run too!
