Laurel Hotelling, who has Down syndrome, and her parents, Wayne and Elaine have been dear friends of my family's for many years. They started the Laurel Run to raise awareness and funds for people with disabilities. You can go to http://laurel-run.com to read all about Laurel and how the Laurel Run came about. The proceeds from the event go to Filling the Gap, Inc. to fund disability awareness and prevention initiatives. Please support me in honor of Laurel.
