|Our "Running for Lincoln" group|
Off we drove, my husband Jerry and daughter Raelee. It was still dark out as we meet Tonya and her family and headed towards Salem to pick up Jenny (Lincoln's Mom).

It was very cold so we sat in the car to stay warm while waiting for the rest of our group to arrive.

Next thing we know it's time to get in the line to start. I jumped around some to try and keep warm...it was still very cold, but nice and dry. We had fun standing there joking and laughing. Everyone was happy to be there and excited to get going.

I went over to get an apple off the great table of food and found Tonya who had come in before me.
Tonya was so excited that we both got PR's today (personal records). We had ran Silver Falls only three weeks before and didn't know how today would feel. Felt pretty good!!!!
We went back over to the finish line to watch for friends to come in. I got to hand several of my friends their medals. It was so much fun!
This is Superhero Lincoln. When I say "Superhero" I mean it! He is a true Superhero and so is his amazing family. If you would like to follow us on facebook or team up with us and give a donation, please message Julie here or here.
The support by the group was so awesome. We raised $50.00 Thankgiving morning for Lincoln. We also were asked lots of questions about our shirts. I feel like our time was well spent Thanksgiving day morning!
Thank you all who came. All who supported our cause but couldn't make it...and to Uberthon's, for teaming with us. Together, we make a difference!
By the way, on our way out...we saw SANTA!!!!! How fun is that!?
|Tonya, Jenny, Megan, SANTA and Jerry|
Thanks for giving ........
