In 9 years, the foundation has collected and donated clothes and toys to the Ronald McDonald House ® of Cleveland, Ohio; donated monetary funds to support Senders Pediatrics literacy program and raise money to purchase adaptive equipment for children serviced by Matthew's Lending Library of Lakewood. In 8 years, our Total Healing F.A.I.T.H. Walks have increased our participation to approximately 200 adults and children and we have raised a total of 20,000 total (~2-5K a year) for local organizations. One hundred of all our monetary donations (tax-exempt) are given to selected a non-profit.
This year the Nonprofit selected for our fundraiser is the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland which serves many families while their children are hospitalized in surrounding hospitals. The RMH was a home away from home to Lorelle's family during her 2 month NICU stay. We are honored to host a fundraiser for RMH, an organization that has touched so many lives of our participants. We hope to raise at least 8,000 dollars to support their efforts. "The Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland offers a place to call home at little or no cost so families can access the best health care, regardless of their location"
The Annual Total Healing F.A.I.T.H. Walk is designed to bring children and families together to walk for the healing of all those affected by illness. We believe in a holistic healing regardless of a person's diagnosis or prognosis. Annually, we walk a 5K together, all ages, and for several different reasons but one common goal to support eachother and celebrate life.
Our inspiration for the past decade has been the life and legacy of Lorelle Faith who was born with the chromosomal disorder Trisomy 13. Lorelle was given a month to live, placed on hospice and endured several surgeries and a plethora of diagnosis such as epilepsy and lived 6 beautiful years. Our motto is "we bless those who bless others"! Our motto is only true because of generous people who come out annually to participate and donate to such a wonderful cause! Let's join together and make a difference!
