THE STORY:

In less than 2 weeks, on March 23rd, my family will participate in the "Sandy Hook Run for the Families" 5k in Hartford, Connecticut benefiting the Sandy Hook Support Fund. We are members of "Team Jessica Rekos".

As most of you know, Jessica was my neighbor and good friend to my 2 kids. She was 1 of the 26 children and educators killed at Sandy Hook School on 12/14/12. She was smart, witty, and full of energy!  A true joy!  She was the oldest in her family and a role model to all of the little kids on the street who looked up to her. We think about her every single day. 

One of the photos I have included is of my daughter and Jessica when they were playing at our house.  It's quite blurry but I still treasure it because of their beautiful smiling faces!

I am continually trying to find ways I can help my friends and my community and this felt like one of them. This little girl was amazing and I am doing this in her memory.

This May, she would have been 7 years old. So I decided to set our fundraising goal at $700. Any contribution is appreciated!

Love to you all,

Julie (and family)
