Today, Monday, September 18, 2017, marks the five-year anniversary since Katie McBurnett’s passing.
In the last five years, we have done so much. We started with a simple idea – to continue Katie’s legacy in a way she would be proud of. And that’s just what we’ve done. We’ve donated over 200 Cough Buddy bears to area hospitals, we’ve provided scholarships to two heart transplant recipients, and we’ve raised awareness of how important being an organ donor really is.
This year has been transitional for us in a way – we didn’t hold a race in Madison this fall, and we’re taking some time to rethink our fall fundraiser. We want to do things we’re passionate about, and things that we think Katie would be interested in.
Katie, we love you, we miss you like crazy, and we sincerely hope you’re proud of what we’ve been doing in your honor.
