Jack Iko McGuire Memorial Run

On March 29th, months of planning came together on a cool morning for the Jack Iko McGuire Memorial Run at St. Charles Borromeo with all proceeds benefitting the Miracles To Milestones Playground.

Towards the end of last year, I approached the principal at SCB about possibly having a dress down day for the playground. What happened from there was truly set in motion with God’s perfect timing. The day I met with her, she was also approached by the mother of the angel behind the Jack Iko Run, and then followed by a motivated athletic department looking for a good cause. It’s amazing and inspiring how things can fall into place.

The weekend started with a chain competition between classes on Friday. When we showed up with Benjamin, the kids showed such interest in Benjamin. I truly appreciated the questions and sweet comments from the kiddos. I was also able to watch Lennon talk and answer questions about her brother. I couldn’t have been prouder, and you could tell she was too. To my surprise, the students raised over $3000.

Saturday morning, we signed people in and registered new racers , passing out race numbers into the 230’s. 🙂 We received such great support from the people of the church, school, and community.

With the chain competition, successful race, great food and drinks, and endless deserts, SCB raised a total of $11,625.56. We are extremely grateful for all the wonderful people who put so much work into this. I am so very excited knowing the students will be able to enjoy this playground soon.
