race for grace

 

Not sure if this is the right forum,but here we go....Last year a wonderful charity race was started in Narragansett,RI. THE RACE FOR GRACE,over 2000 people came together almost all by word of mouth. About 140,000 dollars raised and hundreds of people volunteered there time and effort. This stuff happens everyday right? We run walk and stroll for charities all over the country. Money is raised and we all go home better for it. So what's all the fuss about this one? All this work was started by the parents of Grace and they are still doing it ! Almost all by themselves they created and sponsored this race writing letters and sending emails asking for donations .It has consumed their lives, this race has become something bigger than they ever could have expected. That being said they have five children, Grace with a disease that keeps her in constant pain and frustration. They don't get much sleep. In short they are about ready to snap! All I'm asking is if anyone could help them please do. So much has been accomplished  and it would be a shame if this race faded out. In the very least please visit their website( wich they got off the ground themselves)It will explain whats going on with Grace and the race better than I ever could Thanks in advance Chris Nichols.
