SUCCESS, HOPE, GRATITUDE!!
To all of our amazing 5K participants, sponsors, volunteers and donors:
Thank you for a wonderful, fun, heart-warming event on Saturday,October 19,2013! The sun was shining, and so were all of you!
I know you all join me in gratitude to our talented and tireless planning committee.
As you can see from the smile on Delaney's face after she completed her "Fun Run", she too thanks you with all her heart. With intensive, specialized therapy at this early age, her future looks very bright. Every one of you played an important part. Together we are strong-for Delaney!
- The Thomas Family
Dave and Maureen Thomas’s daughter, Delaney, was born with an extremely rare genetic condition resulting in microcephaly and cerebral palsy. In spite of her dire prognosis at three months of age, she has made remarkable progress. Special equipment and multiple therapy programs (as well as Delaney’s own spirit!) have made this possible. Now three years old, she is taking on new physical, mental and social challenges, and her need for special support is growing too.
On October 19, 2013 we launched our first annual “Do It for Delaney“ at Quarry Lakes Regional Park in Fremont. The money raised will allow Delaney to attend an intensive therapy program that has shown great success for her. In addition to raising funds for Delaney’s therapy, donations will be made to Conductiva, a conductive education learning program, Family Resource Network, a Bay Area organization assisting special needs families, and The Foundation for Children with Microcephaly.
