BENEFITING: Sophie and Madigans Playground Inc
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am running a half marathon for the charity team, Sophie and Madigan's Playground. In 2013, the Lillard family experienced a horrific fire at their home, changing their lives forever. The lives of two of their daughters, Sophie and Madigan, were taken. The surviving family members were left hospitalized and devastated. Their home, 4 pets, possessions and any physical reminders of their girls were all destroyed. As quoted from their site, "Our mission is to honor the lives of Sophie and Madigan Lillard by building a memorial playground and providing opportunities for children and their families to play, learn, and create lifelong memories together, and in ways that reflect the beautiful personalities and spirits of these two sisters." My goal is to raise $700.00 by the race day, November 5, 2016. Any little bit is greatly appreciated!
