Go Lucy Go Race

If you've wondered where the Krull family has been for the past few weeks, we've been up to our eyeballs in race planning.  It's been a lot of work, but oh!  This year's race is going to be amazing---the best one yet!  Not only is this our 5th anniversary, but we have also added a 10k.  To date there are 695 participants registered.  Will you please help us reach our goal of 800?

This year everyone who participates in the race will get a FREE hamburger or hotdog, chips and a drink.  Not to mention a grab bag of race goodies and a commemorative race cup!

Most importantly, we are raising money for a great cause.  The Go Lucy Go Foundation supports the efforts of LeBonheur Children's Hospital through various avenues.  Hot meals, food pantry, clothes closet, the Ladybug Library and nurse education.  I want to share a few pictures with you of some recent additions to the Child Life department on the 7th floor.  The 7th floor of LeBonheur houses the Neuroscience Institute, where Lucy spent all of her time when she was there.

This is the new teaching doll that the Go Lucy Go Foundation purchased.  This $3500 doll is interactive, allowing doctors, nurses and child life specialists to show children about their illness and upcoming surgery.  I can't tell you how helpful this doll was for Lucy before her craniotomy.


Also this year, the Go Lucy Go Foundation purchased an iPad cart filled with 25 iPads.  Kids are able to check these out and use them in their rooms.  They can be used for keeping up with homework, medical education or just plain FUN!  Every kids needs a distraction when they are in the hospital.



And here is the project near and dear to my heart.  As I have said so many times before that we read books on a daily basis when Lucy was in the hospital.  Providing these books for the children of the 7th floor brings such joy to our hearts.  The books are donated with the assumption that children are going to want to take them home.  Nothing makes us happier than knowing a book that brought joy to a child while he or she was sick will also bring happiness at home.



Because of you, families of brain tumor patients and children with Epilepsy are being cared for every single day.  If you haven't registered, don't wait.  The deadline to register for this year's race is drawing near.  This Wednesday, April 15th at MIDNIGHT the online registration will close.  For those of you who want to support the Foundation as a Spirit Runner, this will be your last day to sign up.  Shirts will be mailed to you the week after the race.

Race registration will be available the day of the race for an additional charge.  Go online now and help support the work of the Go Lucy Go Foundation.  Register at www.golucygo.org

  3. Wow, how wonderful and meaningful the contributions from the GLG Foundation are! So much to be proud of and I'm jealous we are not local to run alongside you. All the best to sweet Lucy and you all.

  4. One of these days I am going to fly from TX to TN to actually participate in a race. I love helping by being a spirit runner but I want to actually run it! The GLG Foundation is doing wonderful things for the hospital.

  5. This is the picture of the love of parents for their children, though they are ill the parents do not love never faded. It's probably the right phrase for these photos

  6. It’s great that they’re finding new ways to communicate with their patients in a more relaxed environment, and that they are using technology for their advantage. Being a service-oriented profession, it falls to them to accommodate the needs of the patients, whether it’s for keeping track of medical conditions or to keep them entertained during their stay. Thanks for sharing, and good day!
