On June 7th, in memory of Jordan on his 6th birthday, we carried a meal to the Ronald McDonald House. Also through the foundation we had a meal catered at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital in the Family Room. There we fed 200 people. Everyone was so appreciative. It was a reminder to us that there are always so many sick children in the hospital and so many worried families there with them. Please make it a daily goal to pray for children who are sick and suffering and those who love them and stay by their sides.
Our 5th Race for Jordan raised $21,500 for the foundation! We had 805 registrants and 34 sponsors. There were 435 participants in the race. It was a great day!
This year’s 5K was a great success, raising $21,000.00! With 33 sponsors and 630 pre-registrants, the day was blessed before it even began. We had 70 register on race day, despite the pouring down rain. With our racers, volunteers, and spectators, we had over 325 present to Race for Jordan! Thank you to everyone who had a part in the 4th annual Race for Jordan!
The North Carthage Baptist Church will be holding a detergent drive during the month of December.
A Thanksgiving meal was provided for the families of children in the Pediatric Critical Care Unit (PCCU) at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital.
