A couple of years ago, I was invited to one of my co-workers (who has also become a dear friend) birthday celebration that was a paint party. At the party, my husband and I met a cool couple who brought their beautiful daughter with them. Her name is Hailey. At the time, she was battling cancer. All of her hair was gone, but her spirit was so happy and sweet! As a result of her battle and her family's struggle, The Hailey Bankhead Foundation was born.
The Hailey Bankhead Foundation is an organization founded from one mother's love for her child facing childhood cancer and a need to find a sense of purpose and a desire to ease the pain and to serve other families facing childhood cancers.
Since the paint party, we have been able to watch Hailey bloom and also attend their First Annual formal dinner and auction fund raiser last year. The time has come again for the 3rd Annual 5K run, walk, and fun!! This will be our first year participating and we would love to meet you there too!
