Thanks to community support in Baxter, Minnesota last Memorial Day weekend, the Ronald McDonald House – Oak Street "Help Yourself" pantry was fully stocked through the first annual Race for Grace! Parents, Jake and Alyssa stayed with us after Grace was born in May 2011. They organized the annual Race for Grace Memorial 5K walk/run to remember Grace and continue serving others in her honor.
This year, the funds raised will support our friends at Faith’s Lodge. Faith's Lodge does such amazing work for families. Their mission is to provide a place where parents and families facing the serious illness or death of a child can retreat to reflect on the past, renew strength for the present, and build hope for the future.
We support the wonderful Lee family and invite others to join them on Sunday, May 26 for the second annual Race For Grace. For more information, find "Race for Grace" on Facebook or learn more on the race website.
