Tiny Sparrow Foundation | A Non Profit Organization » A Picture of Hope

Run for Hope | Run with Hope™

In 2009, two friends from high school reconnected in San Antonio after not talking or seeing each other in over 20 years thanks to social networking. This was not your typical girls’ reunion weekend, either.  Susan flew to Texas from Boston and Dawn (four months pregnant at the time) drove across Texas to meet Susan at the airport and then run the Rock-n-Roll marathon together a few days later.  Since then, they make sure to connect at least twice a year to run a marathon together.  The year 2012 marks a milestone in their lives: they are turning the big 4 0 and just days apart from one another.  

As you may know, Susan is part of the Tiny Sparrow Foundation team as our Creative Director and Family Liaison. In her words, “it is the hardest — but best work I’ve ever done in my life — and am humbled by each and every family’s true strength.” She is dedicated to supporting not only the mission of our Foundation, but each and every family in any {big or small} way she can.  Dawn is the Foundation’s newly appointed Director of Administration and  in her own words “when I am getting weary around mile 18 I am going to look down and find strength I never knew I had and think of the little fighters of this world.”

As life has taken these two friends to different places and experiences, they are both grateful to understand the true gift in turning 40 – good health.  Since distance will keep them apart on the actual days in March,  they are choosing to celebrate this milestone and that gift by helping others who do not: Dawn and Susan will Run for Hope in the 2012 Houston Chevron Marathon on Sunday, January 15th.   We are proud to release the official Tiny Sparrow Foundation race day t-shirt that Dawn and Susan will proudly be wearing on January 15th

Stay tuned for the official release of the TSF Run for Hope | Run With Hope™ race day shirt you can purchase to wear on your next race day and for Team Tiny Sparrow Foundation.  Shhh, we are also working on the formation of Team Tiny Sparrow. 

The back of the Run for Hope| Run With Hope shirt carries the names of our Tiny Sparrow Foundation angels.  On the front will be a special place for you to pin a name or picture of a loved one or your special angel who will {always} be close to your heart.

Please consider supporting these two friends as they support the future children and families of Tiny Sparrow Foundation with a tax deductable donation.  While these two girls Run for Hope, you can Give for Hope by making a donation!  

Susan and Dawn are Running for Hope | Running with Hope in honor and memory of sweet Benjamin Gamez.
