The day after Christmas is always spent in our jams, playing games, building Lego’s and doing nothing but fun. The boys love Pajama Day!
We hope your Christmas was fantastic! We had a great Christmas filled with celebrating with family and friends. Our joy continues as we will continue our Favorite Things of the Holiday though the New Year!
New Year’s Day - 100 Mile Miracle Run
Joe Vasil and John Farinelli (both St. Albert Dads) will embark in their training for the 100 Burning River Run in August. We challenge each of you reading this to train with them. Whoa, 100 miles you say ….. WHAT???? Oh it will be easy peasy. We would like to have as many people as possible to join the 100 Mile Miracle Run.
Here is the deal, starting New Years Day through July Walk or Run 100 miles (on your own) to support these amazing guys that will run 100 miles for John Owen all at once! If they can run 100 miles for 30 hours straight, you certainly can grab 4 miles a week walking or running for John Owen.
You can sign up here or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Looking forward to making a few miracles with you soon!
Yes Dodgeball is back this year! Check it out here and sign up for this really fun event. It is a great way to get the Cabin Fever out of your bones.
You can’t stop our spiriters! This year we have both a running team and a walking team! Please check out our Moving Spirit Page to embrace the details. The Cleveland Rite Aid has not been the same since our sea of JOA orange hit them last year! Join us please for your walking or running legs to help derail Duchenne via the 5k, 10k, half marathon or full on 5.18.14.
Oh yea, if you are committing to the 100 Mile Miracle Run then just simply tag this on! How easy will these miles look after four months of moving!!!
We were so lucky to have one full month of early snow! The boys got to do their favorite thing, Hillbilly Sledding already! They have so much fun sledding with Tony through our yard, it is awesome!
We are holding our own! Great news in that Owen received his first fitted wheelchair. He also finally got back into PT and we are seeing great things out of him with Merri-Jo. His check ups for this year have been steady, no major declines and all major organs doing what they are supposed to do, Victory!
So excited to spend these last few days of the year with the boys, spreading the cheer in the birth of Christ and ringing in the New Year.
So our Christmas and New Years wish for you is that you hold today so deeply in your heart that it is filled with joy, Today.
God bless you, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
