Mark your calendars for Spring Fling 2016!

Posted: February 25th, 2016 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

Our 7th (yes, 7th…I can’t believe it) Annual Spring Fling and Bone Marrow Drive will be 4/16/16 from 1-4pm at Dover-Foxcroft Farm in Ruckersville VA. As always, we have an abundance of activities for kids and families planned including pony rides, moon bounces, face painting, tie dying, magician, silent auction, a treasure hunt and much much more! Most importantly you will have the opportunity to join The Be the Match National Marrow Donor Program with a simple cheek swab. If your bone marrow is a match for anyone in the world, YOU could save a life. What an amazing opportunity that would be!! Ethan & Isaac will likely need the bone marrow of a generous stranger. Thus, we are encouraging everyone we can to register to Be the Match and potentially save a life…..or two!

Also, The Hold My Hand for Life Foundation has partnered with the Dogwood Duathlon this year! The Duathlon will happen on 4/24/16 at the Forest Lakes South Clubhouse in Charlottesville, VA at 9 AM. This a RUN-BIKE-RUN event for kids ages 7-16. There will be lots of prizes as well as another chance for you to join Be the Match. We are excited about this opportunity and are looking forward to joining the fun! You can register at:

Spring Fling 2015….COLD but successful

Posted: April 12th, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

Our family is so eternally grateful for the support that has been shown to us, the Hold My Hand for Life Foundation, and our yearly fundraising events over the past 6 years. For the first time ever, this year it was COLD and so many family, friends, church members, and community members came out and braved the elements to show their support. We had 30 people commit to becoming a bone marrow donor as well as 40 people give blood!!! We can not express our gratitude for your ongoing participation, support, and love. We pray our boys remain healthy enough that we can continue to provide this free community event in years to come and add many more bone marrow donors to the registry so we can save a life or two!
