Call to Action



2 major events are happening that I want you to be aware of.  I hope you will be able to participate in at least one.

1. I've just created Team Go Lucy Go for the 8th Annual LeBonheur Pumpkin Run.  Last year we had the largest team with 91 and we raised more than $6100 dollars for LeBonheur.  I hope you are planning on joining our team as we lace up our "kicks" to raise money for the hospital that has become such a crucial part of Lucy's survival.  Our family owes a lifetime of gratitude to LeBonheur, and participating in this race is just one way to begin!


The link above will let you sign up to Run or WALK as a member of Team Go Lucy Go.  Like last year, we will have a really cool shirt designed that you will be able to purchase at a later date (before the race.)

You can also choose to donate to the team (if you live out of town or unable to participate.)


2.  We are also gearing up for our annual Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for the 7th floor of LeBonheur.  For those of you who might be new to the blog, our family raises donations from "you" and we have a meal catered and serve the families who are in the hospital during the holidays.  Last year we were able to serve multiple floors and so many families were blessed.  This year we would like to be able to provide each family with a small monetary gift card to help with the extra costs associated with the holidays, as so many families miss so much work during extended hospital stays.  If you would like to donate money please send it to:

Go Lucy Go
126 Highway 51 South
Covington, TN  38019

If you are local and are interested in bringing drinks, desserts or serving the meal, please just send me an email at the above address.

Seriously....how can you tell this little girl "no?"

  4. The 7th floor (as well as the 10th floor cardio) has played a large part in my 9 month olds life this year as well!! I'm so excited to see this, coming from another mom who has spent weeks/months in the hospital this is awesome to do!! Really hoping I can participate in the run but will def help monetarily! Thanks for all you do despite the struggles you have going on right now!!

  6. If anyone has followed this blog for anytime they have witnessed what an AMAZING and STRONG, DETERMINED Little girl LUCY is. With that being said the whole Krull family is so so strong and have been and are going through so much that has to be where Lucy has gotten her strength to push on. I am and will continue to spread the word here in Vermont about this Precious little girl/family that I have grown to admire through the blog world to help raise all the money I can and hope that all others will try to do the same if they have the ability. Go LUCY GO (Team)....(even if you can not help Please continue to Pray for this Family.

  7. Kate, What great events to promote! While I was out walking today, I thought about this blog post and how I wanted to contribute! I live in Dyersburg. Thus, I'd like to bring drinks (easy to get to you with a toddler in tote) for both the Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. Tell me what type of drinks are you looking for (i.e. water bottles, cans, etc.) so that I can start stocking my contribution to you! Additionally, this is my year of giving back so I want to give a little more for these dinners....I coupon! And I come across many free items that I can donate...shampoo, conditioner, deo, etc. I'd like start gathering these items today and placing them in a box that we can let the children decorate one weekend. Then we can let "7th floor" guests pick what they want...I already have some free children's toothbrushes, markers, deo, razors that I picked up for free this week that I can pull aside if you are interested in one more task to add to your gift of giving during these holidays! Hugs to you today and your sweet children! Praying for you! http://litsajacksonandfamily.blogspot.com/
