5k Fundraiser

I am SO happy to update about our latest fundraiser! On October 16th, we had a beautiful day to host a 5k run and kids fun run. The day was perfect, the weather was georgous, the racers were amazing....an absolute success! There were 70 participants and we are PROUD to say that we raised $4700!!!!! That is nearly 200 hospitalized children that we will be able to give a a Build A Bear stuffed animal to this holiday season.

A HUGE thank you to our sponsors, we could not have done it without you! Rockford Health Systems, Rock Road Companies, and Sargento cheese....we appreciate their support in our organization and our mission to lift the spirits of hospitalized children!

Jack O'Neil, founder of Little Hands Make A Big Difference, with 2 very special girls that were recipients of donated Build A Bear animals. The BEST part of our fundraiser was having Kailee and Shelby there to help him distribute prizes to the racers.

The kids fun run! Look at them GO!!!!!

The first racer to cross the finish line, 5k in under 19 minutes. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!
