Fighting Childhood Cancer 5K Walk/Run

This past Saturday, my daughter and I were able to attend the Hailey Bankhead Foundation 5K Run/Walk that supports the fight against childhood cancer. My original post about the event shared the story of Hailey Bankhead, who is a cancer survivor, and also shared pictures of when my husband and I first met her and her lovely family.

My daughter wasn't at the event when we met Hailey, so she was very excited and eager to met her at the 3rd Annual 5K Run/Walk that we attended. First, let me say that it was an honor to be able to be support an organization that is about supporting children and families that are faced with and fighting through this terrible disease.

Hundreds of supporters showed up to run and walk including the Clayton County Police and Fire Department. There were bouncy houses, vendors, and plenty of food for everyone to eat. They even had health screenings and live entertainment.

Although it was literally freezing that day, we all had a great time! Here are a few pictures that I was able to snap. Some of them I grabbed from the Hailey Foundation Facebook page!

Save the date 9.12.15 for the next event, "Under the Stars"! We attended this formal dinner/ball last year and we had a fantastic time! Be sure to mark it on your calendar and support!
