Makenzie's Live, Laugh, Breathe Event!

It was a Success!!!!
It was seriously amazing. We had so much love and support it was overwhelming. I apologize if I never got to talk to you or hug you- I really wanted to but I was seriously a mad women the whole day. So sorry! How rude of me. I still love you though and hope you will forgive me :)
Well I know you have all been checking in DAILY if not HOURLY to find out our results. I am a huge slacker and was nervous to post the final $$$ for fear something would happen and I would have more or less than what I was expecting. The reason being- We still were handing out silent auction items. So here it is...
DRUM ROLL PLEASE...
$15,080
No I'm not lieing. We beat our goal by $5,080... WHOO HOOO!
You all rock!
I cant tell you how amazing this is. You have made a difference to so many children. You have given hope to so many parents. It may be this donation that gives them the answer to a cure.
I hope you all know how thankful I am. From the bottom of my heart I could never thank you enough. For everything.
Those who came, bid on items, volunteering your time, volunteering your servies, donated money, bought treats, bought tickets, rode in the motorcycle ride, sent donations, told their friends and family about the event or prayed for us.
It was because of you!
Thank You Thank You Thank You.
Ill post more pictures soon but for some fun updates and pictures click

I am totally blown away, $15000?! That is amazing! I knew it would be a success and it was, in SO many ways and I know Kenzie, as well as all of 'us' are so proud of you! Thanks to you and Ryan for doing this, for sharing your story and thanks to everyone who helped you not only reach, but surpass, your goal! INcredible!! Hugs, Em

I actually have really been checking daily! I am so excited for you. What a wonderful benefit to help any other littles (or future littles) who struggle with this disease. I am amazed at how beautifully you honor your daughter.

I am so happy you met and exceed your goal. It was a fun day - even if it was a scorcher!! I loved spending my time that day in the Kenzie boutique with my two sisters. When I think of the children who may benefit by the research that the funds will help with, it warms my heart and puts a smile on my face. A job well done to both you and Ryan. We love you!! Aunt Mary
