We, Rachel and Josh Shepard and Alexa Firkusny, all age 15, are part of the Teen Leadership Corps at the organization Cradles to Crayons. Cradles to Crayons is a non-profit organization that services children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations. Cradles provides the essential items that children need to thrive at school, at home, and at play. Being a part of the Teen Leadership Corps encourages us to give back to our community by helping children in need. We decided to run a 5K on Sunday, August 12th, 2018 to raise money to purchase new shoes, socks, underwear, pajamas, and additional clothing that is currently in high demand. We are hoping to raise over $1000 by the date of our run. We truly appreciate any amount of money you can donate here to help our cause. Thank you so much!
