5K Fall Fun

This past fall has flown by but with tons of fun things on the agenda for Ella's Halo.

Last Saturday, October 16th, I went up to a race in Fargo, ND called the Filthy 5K.  30+ women came out wearing bright pink T-shirts and wearing Ella's Halo's logo on the front to help us spread the word about EH.  I wasn't sure what to expect as this 5K race is through the woods, in mud puddles and up hills but it was so fun watching them get their pink shirts full of mud.  It meant so much to watch these wonderful girls running in honor of my baby girl!  Ella's Halo team even won biggest group and I got to write Ella's Halo on the pig award.  Thanks to Mackenzie Blume for setting it up, organizing all of her friends and spreading the word about Ella's Halo. It is support like this that helps Ella's Halo to help babies. GO TEAM PINK!

We have been getting word out about our own 5K and family walk too.  Strides for NICUs was posted in the Fargo Forum.  Check out the link here.  And a writer from the Fargo Forum also posted a little blurb about Strides for NICUs on his blog.  We also have an interview scheduled today with Christopher Gabriel on WDAY AM radio show in Fargo to talk about Ella's Halo and Strides for NICUs. It should air on his show tomorrow.  Here is his website at

Strides for NICUs is now only 9 days away.  Things are coming together.  Every time Ella's Halo hosts an event I always get really nervous.  Maybe it is the mother in me always hoping that everything we do for Ella's Halo is perfect.  We have our awesome sponsors, we have received some donations for our goodie bags and the t-shirts are getting printed. 

If you are interested in coming to our Strides for NICUs 5K and Family Walk, you can see all of the details on our website at  Click here to download the registration form for our October 30th event.  See you in 9 days when we come together to walk, run, celebrate and support NICUs.
