Thank you so much Cris & Linda for coming up to our event! It definitely means a lot to us that you traveled from Tucson just to share this special day with us. We traveled that road many times while Dylan was alive. That was a road that he started seeing all the beauty that our world had to offer. When we seen your car we knew that Dylan would have loved it! He definitely loved beautiful things. So thank you again for coming and sharing this beautiful day with us!
**For all that didn't get to see... Cris & Linda won the Dylan's Choice Award at our Car Show on Saturday. The winner was picked out by, us, Dylan's Mom & Dad, They got to take home this big trophy that has a picture of Dylan on it.

The month of September kicks off our campaign for Childhood Cancer Awareness. Each year the Dylan Earven Foundation will be holding our Annual Event during the month of September.
Our goal is to bring a greater awareness to our community and to raise money to help those families that are affected by this devastating disease. We are so excited to announce that our 3rd Annual Dylan Earven Foundation 5K/1K Run-Walk was a huge success! The Foundation was able to raise over $20,000 through sponsorships and all the activities of the day. Thank you to everyone that contributed to this success. No matter how big or small your contribution was we couldn’t have done it without you! If you missed this year’s event you can plan to join us next year, and the year after that, and the year after that; because with the help of our wonderful community we plan to make our event bigger and better every year.
Don and I are very thankful! We couldn't have asked for anything more - from our Board Members, friends and family to everyone who ran/walked and participated, we are so blessed to have such great people in our lives. May God return the blessings you have given us.
We are going to try our best to name everyone who helped with this event but if we inadvertently leave anyone out please forgive us. We would like to start with the Miami High School and all the personnel there that allowed us to use their facility. This was a great location and we felt very welcome…Thank you!

It feels like there is so many more thank you's we could send out, but our hope is that all those who had a part of this successful event will know that we truly appreciate all the love and support, because without you this Foundation would not be possible.
May God Bess each and every one of you!
