July 4 Run 2016

July 4 was wet, but the rain didn't dampen the spirits of the runners for the Brandermill 7.4k on July 4th. Proceeds from the race benefitted Connor's Heroes. More than 170 runners participated. Baker's Kitchen even baked a batch of cupcakes to raise more money for our hero families. The holiday fun was to continue with the first-ever Connor's Heroes Parade Float. Hero Mom, Chrissy, organized her family and fellow cancer heroes in decorating a truck and trailer. Families were ready to ride the float and wave for Connor's Heroes. Mother Nature had other plans. The organizers canceled the Brandermill Parade. Oh well, maybe next year. Thank you to:

Ashley, CHF Board Member, for organizing the run,
Chrissy, Grace's mom, for organizing a team of volunteers who decorated the float,
Jimmy Whitten, Whittens Brothers & CHF Board Member, for loaning us the truck and trailer,
