Every year, my youngest sister and I go to the event called Laps for Little Ones and Struttin’ Their Stuff. It’s an event that raises money for a school for mentally and physically disabled children. The school costs nothing to the parents of the children which is why fundraising is so important. My sister has been volunteering here for MANY years now! I was only able to volunteer one summer, but these precious angels touched my heart and I come back every year to run in Laps for Little Ones to help raise money for the school and I will probably ALWAYS come back no matter where my career takes me in order to run for this cause. Every year they do a cute theme, the first year we did it the theme was “The Wizard of Oz”
Sweet Tin Man and Dorothy!
This particular year, both of my sisters did it with me.
The second year I did it, the theme was “Sesame Street” and this year….. the theme was “Dr. Seuss!”
Me and ‘Nessy! Unfortunately they only had L shirts left, so they practically swallow us! haha
It was a lot of fun! After the registered runners/walkers run laps for one hour, then they have the students at The Little Light House “Strut their Stuff!” It is SO precious! They talk about all of their accomplishments for the year and they cross their finish line and get a medal. This is an experience like no other and I will continually come back home to participate in this event!
What events do you participate in year after year because it touches or your heart or has a significant meaning in your life??
