I mentioned this before in Emily’s 17th birthday post… Here!
But let me tell you again!
If you have a child or adult in your care who has special needs, please take a minute to look at the I Run 4 Michael group on Facebook or check their website : I run 4 Michael
They have lots of runners waiting to be match with a buddy.
Our runner, Sonia, has become part of our family, she cheers for Emily and dedicates her training and races to my girl.
She is an ambassador for Emily and for Cri du chat syndrome.
Yesterday Emily received a box in the mail from Sonia. She managed to read the first paragraph (it was a long one) and asked me to read the rest to her.
When she opened the box, it was full of goodies from 3 races/marathon Sonia completed.
What a treat it was.
How cool is that?
