JA’s Will 5K
Saturday, October 26, 2019
Hosted by the Junior Auxiliary of DeSoto County!
Our mission is to bring awareness about the importance of being an organ donor and how this generous gift can make a difference in the life’s of others! All funds raised at this fun event will go toward supporting a DeSoto County family that has a child’s name waiting on a transplant list or battling a chronic illness.
Custom medals for top 3 in each age group, overall Male/Female, largest team participation, and fun participation medals for children 10 and under!
#WillSmiles is in honor of Life Associate member, Anna Beeman’s son, Will. Will was diagnosed with Biliary Atresia and liver failure shortly after birth and at the young age of 5 months was blessed with a new liver that saved his life. Throughout Will’s journey with long hospital stays and numerous surgeries to help with his chronic illness, Will has always shown his fighting spirit and love through his contagious smile. Because of Will’s loving heart, JA feels inspired to help Will spread his story and bring awareness and love to others! While we may not be able to give the gift of an organ or cure on race day, we can show these families that we support and love them! All are encouraged to come run/walk and have some fun!
