Angels Among Us 5K at Duke

Every year Duke hosts a wonderful event and race by the name of Angels Among Us 5K. This year it occurred on April 20th and they were celebrating the 20th year of this wonderful fundraiser. The event this year raised over $2 million for brain cancer research! Luckily, Dustin was feeling well enough that they made the trip down to Durham, NC. Dustin, Rebecca, Michael, Dustin’s dad, Rebecca’s parents, and even Dustin’s aunt, Laura, and her family all went.  Dustin was extremely motivated to participate and took quite a few strides during the walk.  He’s dedicated to going back next year stronger than ever. I’m so proud of him and he motivates me everyday.

It was a very inspiring and uplifting experience for Dustin to meet other brain cancer warriors and see all the love and support from everyone. That very same weekend was the Run For Rhodes #Anywhere5K . We want to thank all 153 people who participated and showed their support for Dustin! Participants ranged from 7 to 67 years old and came from across 9 countries! We appreciate you all more than we could ever express. We are blessed to have so many wonderful people in our lives.

    We miss seeing you and your beautiful family at church, but it is so very good to be able to see your progress. Please know that our prayers are continued for all of you. The kids at CCD would love to send some words and pictures of encouragement, so if there is an address where we could mail them, it would be great.

    The peace of our Lord be with you always.
