2019 Red Balloon Run & Ride

Fight the Pain

Welcome to our Team!

Welcome to TEAM FIGHT THE PAIN!  In April 2016, we visited the Red Balloon Run & Ride.  I was still going through treatment and in a wheelchair.  My mom and I made a pact - we would walk the race together one day.  Well, now that time is here!  The Red Balloon Run & Ride is an incredible fundraising event supporting our local Children's Hospital in Plano.  Having that facility so close to home was very important to me and my family.  Not only were we able to go to the ER late on a Friday night and I was able to get diagnosed so quickly, but I was able to get my blood checked multiple times a week during treatment and get admitted for inpatient chemo without having to travel downtown to the Dallas location.  It was very helpful to all of us that we were so close to home.  We are so thankful for this incredible facility and are happy to be supporting it!

Please consider supporting our efforts by participating in the event on April 21st and/or help us raise $1,800 by making a donation by clicking the DONATE NOW button. Thanks for your support!
