EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2012
Many of you know about the short, but profound life of my daughter Lillian Ann Dunkerton. But for those of you who may not, Lily was born on April 2nd, 2011 and left us on April 6th. She was born with an intestinal defect, which was unfortunately irreversible. Lily spent most of her short life at the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center (CCMC) in Hartford. It was here that she was cared for by some of the best doctors and nurses around who made it possible for Amber and I to be blessed with so many amazing moments with Lily. Moments that we will forever hold in our hearts. Although only here on this Earth for a short time, Lily knew nothing but love. And in that short time, she changed our lives and the lives of others forever.
Last year Rosa and Bianca ran in Lily’s honor to raise money for the CCMC. They will be running the half marathon again this year, and I am excited to say that I will be running with them. Please help us to keep Lily’s legacy running and to help support the CCMC. Last year we raised over $3000 thanks to so many of you. The day of the run was so amazing and inspiring. All are welcome to join our team and run, or cheer us on with Amber, Lily’s new little brother Jack, and some of our family and friends.
We thank you in advance for your support.
Jeff, Amber, and Jack
