St. Jude Trike-A-Thon

This year, the boys school participated in the St. Jude Trike-A-Thon. They even had the camera team from St. Jude there to document it for the ad campaign. SO FUN! Gray was too little to participate, but Ethan’s class did! He had a ball!!

They had Pastor Jay and Pastor Adam join in on the fun too! The church members gathered up “winning donations” (NOT bets! ha!) on who they thought would win! It was so much fun! The kids loved it and cheered them on!!

They set up a little course with “stop signs” and “driveways” and taught the kids about stopping and looking both ways! Great job!!

Growing up and living in Memphis my entire life, and having several friends that have literally fought for their lives within those walls, puts St. Jude very close to our hearts! We are blessed to have such a wonderful institution in our little city of Memphis! It is filled with some of the most wonderful, caring, and courageous people that you could ever imagine!! Hooray for St. Jude! And, HOORAY for GPP for all their hard work with the Trike-A-Thon and all the money they were able to raise!!
