Calling All Superheroes!

Join us on July 14 for our Shaye's Superhero Memorial 5K Fun Run in support of Children's Health Foundation.

Why is this event being held, you might ask? Well, our community is aware of the loss of our daughter Shaye, who passed away when she was only 6 weeks old, 16 years ago.

Despite this heartbreaking experience, our family has been actively involved in supporting the hospital and foundation through fundraising and volunteering over the years. Even our son Rowan participates in volunteering with us, in memory of his sister whom he never got to know. Rowan believes "if he can help another family not go through what we went through, he wants to help." 

What could be a better way to raise both money and awareness for our local hospital and foundation than hosting a family fun event where we can all come together and become superheroes for a day?

We hope to see you there!

– Sheila, Greg, and Rowan Weir
