Mother’s Day 5k Walk To Raise Money For Local Family
Kellan Grogan, the son of Tom and Sommer Grogan of Casper, was born on Christmas Eve 2010, and due to his health complications, had to be sent to Denver, CO via Air Life. Kellan, Tom and Sommer spent 3 months in Denver while Kellan healed from his numerous surgeries. While in Denver, Tom and Sommer were able to stay at the Ronald McDonald House, allowing them to be close to their son, while easing their financial burden.
Unfortunately, the burden was not completely erased and Tom and Sommer still have numerous bills to pay. Because of this, the Natrona County High School National Honor Society is organizing a 5k walk to help raise money for the Grogans, as well as the Ronald McDonald House.
This event will take place at Crossroads Park(next to Mike Lansing Field) on Sunday, May 8 and it will run from 8:00 am-11:00 am. The cost is $12 for students and $15 for adults, with half of the proceeds going to the Grogans and the other half going to the Ronald McDonald House. If you are unable to make the event, but would still like to donate money, you can drop by NCHS Mon-Fri 8:00 am-3:00 pm or you can donate to the Ronald McDonald House online. Also, Townsquare Media is currently raising money for the March of Dimes March for Babies, which exists to help babies, much like Kellan, with health and other issues.
If you’re looking for an incredible way to spend Mothers Day with your family, and you want to help a local family and an enormously cute baby boy, come to Crossroads Park on Mother’s Day. All mothers who attend will be presented with a carnation at the finish and prizes, food, drinks and entertainment will be provided throughout the event!
