We cannot believe we are already 5 days out from the third annual Glow Stick 5k!

We knew from the very beginning, when Taylor was first in the hospital after getting injured in Afghanistan, that we want to give back to all those who supported us during our toughest moments.

Our hometown rallied behind Taylor throughout his entire recovery process. In 2012, the first Glow Stick 5K was created to help raise money for Taylor. Around 400 people gathered together in the pitch black rainy night to light up the night with glow sticks and run a 5K for Taylor!

 

Constantly, throughout Taylor’s recovery process, the community back home and around the world commonly used one word to describe our story:

 

“INSPIRING”

The truth of the matter was we found inspiration in all of the support they were receiving. They wanted to give back to other inspiring people around the community, which prompted the second annual Taylor Morris Glow Stick 5K; Inspired to Pay It Forward!

 

Nominations poured in describing inspirational stories. We then posted these stories for the general public to recognize and vote on who they thought was the most inspirational. Together we were able to raise $7,000 for the Sing Me To Heaven foundation (A foundation that pays for children’s funeral and to help offload some financial stress during a time of tremendous grief) and $1,000 for Sue Spece (to help build a home for her 3 children with chronic disease).

This year we hope to raise even more money for someone so inspiring!

You’ll still be able to sign up on race day, but will not be guaranteed a shirt.

Remember when Taylor and I were traveling home from Vegas a couple weeks ago and his leg broke. Then a mechanic from the airport came to the rescue to help us out.  Well other people and news outlets also got a kick out of it…

Our garden is looking mighty fine!! Taylor is so jealous he is traveling this week and can only check out the garden and everything I am harvesting through pictures.  I’m almost positive there will be plenty for when he gets home Friday :-)
