Event Description

Join us for the third annual Run for Joy 5K Run/Walk benefiting the Ronald McDonald House Charities in precious memory of our daughter, Rebecca Joy Wiggins. We praise God for her life and want to share the joy that God promises even through sorrow. Becca was born on April 3, 2014 and was called Home on July 26, 2014. We hope that you and your family will come help us celebrate her birthday as we raise money for a charity that has meant so much to many families raising kids with medical issues. The race will be followed by an Easter egg hunt and activities for kids.
