I'd like to take a moment to ask my loyal readers to consider donating to Bubba's Belly Run. A lady, Nicki, from one of my local mothers group lost her husband, "Bubba", in Afghanistan. Bubba leaves behind his pregnant wife and his 2 year old son. Bubba was killed in Afghanistan just days after his 2 week R&R at home. When Bubba died, he did not know that his wife was pregnant. She did not learn that she was pregnant until several days after the news of Bubba's death.
In his memory and honor, Bubba's Belly Run has begun. The proceeds of this charity will go to Flat Daddies, The Ficher House, The American Widow Project, and Bubba's children's educations.
Please understand that the website is still under construction and will be updated frequently. If you cannot walk or run in the race, you can purchase flags for $5 each that will be placed along the raceway.
Please visit www.bubbasbellyrun.com to support this cause.
