President's Note

On February 22nd 2010, my son was born at 24 weeks gestation, weighing a mere 1 pound 8 ounces; he endured many complications to include: bilateral brain bleeds, hydrocephalus, dual eye laser surgery, PDA ligation and dual inguinal hernia repair: all within the first 5 months of life.

As each day passed; my wife Holly and I lived in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of our local hospital. Our family soon discovered a strength that we did not know existed. We watched as our micro preemie son fought for his life. We received phone calls in the middle of the night telling us Holdyn, our son, may not survive the night at which point we were faced with a few decisions that should never have to be made. After 7 brain surgeries, and celebrating his 4th birthday this year, he is still one of the toughest, smartest children I have ever met.

It was at this moment in my life that I decided helping other families deal with the stressful and quite often insane debt creating situations of having a special needs child. It is way too much for families to deal with alone. By creating the Great Bacon Race; our community can come together, accomplish their own special goals, and help us raise much needed money to directly support families with special needs children; right here in our own community.

Thanks for the support that’s made it all possible!
