#54: Volunteer for a Charity

This is part of our 100 Things in 2014 challenge. Here’s the full list.

For the fifth year in a row, our family headed down to Salem for the Awesome 3000, a fun-run for kids, with the added benefit of raising money for the Salem and Keiser schools.

This year Will ran with the 3rd-graders. He ran hard, but made sure to smile for the camera as he ran past us.

This year Lucy ran with the 1st-graders, and it was her first time running the whole race alone! It’s a little hard to see, but she stopped to pick a flower about halfway through, and carried it the rest of the race.

They were both so proud when they finished. Ty was a big help at the finish line, making sure all the medals were in order. Maybe next year Ty will be running.
