RUNNING: Race For Grace scheduled May 27

Posted: May 4, 2012 - 11:00pm

The Race For Grace will be run at 10 am. May 27 at Forestview Middle School in Baxter.

Race for Grace will be a family friendly 5-kilometer run/walk in Baxter neighborhoods, starting and ending at Forestview.  

Memorial Day weekend is the weekend Grace was born to the Jake and Alyssa (Altrichter) Lee family, the weekend she left them at the age of one, and the weekend that will forever honor her memory. 

Proceeds from this year’s 5K race will go to the Ronald McDonald House, a favorite charity of Jake and Alyssa. 

You may print registration forms on Facebook’s Race for Grace page or email inquiries to  raceforgrace@live.com.

Early registration deadline is May 14.

Anyone unable to attend the race may contribute to Grace’s non-profit fund through Brainerd Lakes Area Community Foundation. Your tax deductible donation to the Grace Lee Fund will assist other families who have experienced the pain of losing a child or are dealing with a critical childhood illness. This year the focus charity is the Ronald McDonald House.

In the future, the family hopes to support other organizations such as Faith’s Lodge, Caring Bridge, Amplatz Children’s Hospital, and pediatric and cardiology research.
