Children's Memorial 5K for the Fam

This week, i got an email about a 5K benefiting Children's Memorial Heartlight Project and the Peapod Project. They create memory boxes for families whose children die shortly after birth. It is an amazing organization and as M4M-Chicago has worked with Children's, i felt it would be a great race to participate in. It was held in Lincoln Park so we met up with some friends at LPZoo before the race. Although it was packed, the kids loved it and us parents enjoyed visiting. We ran over to the race and it was fun to do another 5K as a family. Josh loves it and Scott didn't balk so it was a success! We even had a cheering section as the Olyers and Johnson's showed up on the course. (ironically, right after the water station so we were walking!)
