Benefitting Shephard's Flock a 501(c)3:
On August 23, 2013 our lives were forever changed by hearing the words “Shephard has cancer.” No child should ever have to suffer from such a horrible disease! Though some view it as not the most ideal of circumstances, we knew from the very beginning that God was going to use Shep’s cancer for His glory. We’ve been blessed every step of the way.
Matt and I are passionate about helping families in the area who have a child battling cancer, therefore we started Shephard’s Flock, a 501(c)(3) non-profit. The families we support have childhood warriors who are battling cancer at USA Children’s and Women’s hospital in Mobile, AL. The Run for Shep is currently our largest fundraiser. We have been overwhelmed by all of the support from local businesses and families for the past 8 years of the race (we missed last year because of COVID.) The money raised has always helped local families with the non-medical expenses (food, gas cards, groceries, etc.) related to treatment. We have also been able to provide the patient treatment areas at the hospital with iPads and several other distraction therapies. We are really excited about the opportunity to give back to the community that has blessed us by giving so much during Shep’s time in treatment.
This year the Run for Shep will be held on Saturday, January 22, 2022, with a 9 A.M. start. The race (certified route) will start and finish in front of Daphne City Hall. Following the races, we are going to have a “No Mo Chemo Party” for all of the local children who have fought and won the battle with cancer. Those registered can choose to run or walk either the 5K or ½ mile fun run and participate in the “No Mo Chemo Party.” We would love your help in partnering to make this year’s event a success! We know this pandemic has put a financial strain on everybody, including these cancer families. We would love your support in 2022! Thank you in advance. We are looking forward to an amazing event with your help!
