THE STORY:

I will once again be running the ING Hartford Half Marathon in loving memory of Lillian Ann Dunkerton. Unfortunately Lily's time here on Earth was limited, but she certainly left something very lasting with me.

Lily has shown the sacredness of life and that every moment on this Earth can and should be cherished and absolutely filled with love. With her memory always with me, my run will be dedicated to Lily, her legacy and the precious gift that she has given to me. The race is on the 13th of October, which also happens to meaningfully mark Infant Loss Remembrance Month.

That day, I will be running with the universal symbol for infant loss, butterfly wings on my back and of course in my heart. In addition, I will be running for the Connecticut Children's Medical Center (CCMC) which was not only where Lily was treated, but was also her "home" for majority of her short life.  Last year, our team of 2 runners and 12 cheering fans raised over $3,000 for the CCMC! This year our team has grown to 6 runners and we'd love to exceed last year's funds raised as well as see your face in our cheering section!!

In case you don't know, the CCMC is an amazing place where children are not only given exceptional medical treatment, but they are also given the hope, love, and strength they so desperately need. It was the CCMC that made it possible for Lily's incredible parents and my dear friends, Jeff and Amber, to be blessed with so many beloved moments with her which they will forever hold in their hearts. It was the CCMC that nurtured Lily's amazing strength and enabled her, in her brief life, to know nothing but love. For the children still with the CCMC, Lily's legacy is one of hope, love, and strength.

Please forward the message of Lily's Legacy and click above to support the Connecticut Children's Medical Center and help keep Lily's legacy running!

 Love, Rosa Fernandes
