On Sunday, July 16th we'll be running the 5K To Fight Histio at Pier 84 in Manhattan to honor Elizabeth Virgil.
Our dear friends Jason and Allison Virgil lost their daughter Elizabeth last year, just after her 2nd birthday. Ellie succumbed to complications from Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis (HLH), a rare autoimmune disease.
Our hearts hurt for the Virgils each and every day over their loss. While there is nothing we can do to ease their pain, we can come together to honor Ellie. So we will run for her, to grieve, to honor and to remember her.
Please consider donating to our 5k team, the money raised will benefit Liam's Lighthouse Foundation. We would like to make our donation in Ellie's name, so that her memory lives on and helps others in their fight against this deadly disease.
We look forward to running this July for a little girl so near and dear to our hearts. We hope you'll consider a small donation for this great cause.
