Shepherd Hall was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL) two years ago at the age of 3. Over the past two years he has been a true warrior in fighting this vicious disease. Shepherd’s parents partnered with USA Children’s and Women’s Hospital and started a 1/2 Mile Fun Run and 5K called Run for Shep. The proceeds benefit local families of children with cancer. The organization is able to help these families with their expenses while receiving treatment. They have also been able to donate I-pads and other fun distractions for children during their time at the hospital.
What makes this fun run unique is that the children and adults are asked to dress as their favorite super hero. So if you see people parading as Batman, Superman, and Spiderman as they run through Daphne next weekend, you’ll know why. Next Saturday, the 23rd, marks the third annual run. If you are interested in joining this great cause, go to their page at Eventbrite for more information.
