$11,000 and counting thanks to Rosebuds!

The Rosebuds race was this morning. Our little kids in blue all out running at Grant Park for a great cause. Kids helping Kids with Cystic Fibrosis. 29 kids came out this morning and together they raised over $11,000! Great prizes were given out and there were smiles a plenty!

Thanks to my awesome help and best of all, the sweet little faces that worked hard to train for their race day and raise SO MUCH MONEY FOR CYSTIC FIBROSIS PATIENTS! You guys rock!

This day makes me and Elena SO proud of what Rosebuds has accomplished in only 1 year and 3 races! Our Rosebuds have raised over $30,000 since our first race Last March.

This team was created all because my daughter said she was the Little Kid's version of Mommy's CF fundraising team. I'm so very proud of her and her GREAT idea.
Cousin Logan's first road race! His Mommy carried him the whole way.
Elena's brother, Ethan! Finished his second road race, but first where he ran himself!
Elena's friend Bobby getting ready to run super fast!
Elena's friend David making a sprint toward the finish line.
Elena with her friend Cassidy showing off their medals! Way to go girls!

When you see this picture of Elena, you will see how VERY healthy she looks. It is because of donated dollars that has gone into research for medicines that help MY daughter stay strong and healthy. With her strength and energy she can continue to give back to the CF community in a big way through Rosebuds. so other kids can reap the same rewards she continues to receive daily.

Go Rosebuds!!!
