The Story

EVENT DATE: Apr 26, 2015

DEADLINE TO GIVE: May 31, 2015

Fun Walk/Run to Benefit Grace Fisher

Sponsored by SB Firefighters Assoc Charity Fund, Tri-Counties CPTA, ParentClick, Arturo's Barbershop, Aqua Nail Bar, El Capitan Canyon, Fox & Goss Antiques, Starbucks-5 Points, Braunhaiem/Hyatt Family, Kind World Foundation, Fitness Body Boot Camp, SB High School, San Marcos High School

Sending a huge THANK YOU to everyone that ran, walked, skipped and donated to the RACE WITH GRACE. The event was so much fun with 46 teams on the track completing a marathon 104 laps each showing their love for Gracie! It was absolutely amazing. See photos on www.facebook.com/groups/helpgracie.

Karina, Rufino and their crew from Arturo's and Aqua were busy all day helping people look fine with fresh nails and hair cuts! Sara Wilcox decorated arms, sholders and more with henna tattoos. Starbucks sent volunteers and enough coffee and iced tea to keep us all moving in the right direction. And Firefighter Dan and his grill buddies served up burgers and hot dogs to the hungry racers. Many lucky people won raffle prizes artfully accessorized and displayed by Fox & Goss Antiques.

After a warm up by Marianna of Fitness Body Boot Camp, Hector Hurtado brought out amazing muscians that kept up the beat all day long. Thank you to Sol Seasons, Brandi Lentini, The Brambles, Swingline, The Traveling Hurtados and the other musicians that sat in to jam.

We blew past our goal on fundraising and are still going strong! It is all for 17 year old Gracie Fisher and AFM awareness. Learn about Acute Flaccid Myelitis, the mysterious, polio-like illness causing paralysis in kids like Gracie. #HealAFM Thanks to incredible support, we have raised enough to buy an accessible van for Grace to enjoy a full life once she's back in Santa Barbara! But we haven't stopped our fundrasing efforts- so click the DONATE button now and show the love to this amzing girl and her family.
