This Saturday in Austin, Texas a lot of the community is coming out to run with a lion. In this case the ‘lion’ is a little boy named Rex and he’s every bit as courageous.
I blogged about Rex and his family back in January (read here). Rex has Stage 4 Neuroblastoma and has inspired an entire community with his fight and resolve during this challenging time of his life. He’s only one year old. And on this Saturday, March 22nd he’s turning two. In celebration of his birthday and to support the Ryan family and others battling his condition, the first annual Run with Rex 5K and Birthday Party will happen!
The event will take place at the Austin State Supported Living Center located at the corner of 35th and Mopac. The 5K starts at 9 AM with the Kid’s 1K to follow. There will be lots of family fun, entertainment and the opportunity to help. I will be the emcee of the event and encourage everyone to sign up, bring the family and be a part of supporting a little guy that needs us all.
