Run for Wes!

RunforWes SliderTHANKS2Thank you for helping Run for Wes!!  In 2013, a team of over 50 Runners and donors contributed to raise over $6,000 for Wes and his  family!

  “2 and a 1/2 Year old Wes is a happy, smiley boy who is determined to make the best of life. He and his family are battling medical expenses as they search for answers to his undiagnosed developmental disorder.  He’s learning to walk in his gait trainer and is using a mobile stander to help strengthen his legs. He’s non verbal and will be getting a communication device as well as speech therapy to learn to communicate. We are not sure what the future holds for Wes but we are certain that God will use him in big ways!”

 

Thank you Day-Savers!  And even though the race is over, it’s not too late to help out. You can still donate to Wes and family through this page: www.savetheday.us/wes

Thank you for sharing ideas, reflecting on the meaning of Christmas, and helping raise funds through our online Salvation Army Red kettle!
