    If we cannot make it to the 5K do you have a page where we can make monetary donations? Coming from a mother who had a very ill child I wish your family nothing but the best… My prayers are with you…

    • laynej3   July 2, 2013 10:01 pm

      Yes please do! The link to the left on the main page has a donate button that takes you to a fundly account set up for them. Thank you for your prayers! The woods really need them right now!

    I would love to do the 5K, however I am not a runner. Can walkers come as well?

    • laynej3   July 2, 2013 11:50 pm

      Absolutely! we would love to have you come and walk! I am currently working on getting the registration finished up, it should be up and running by tomorrow. Thank you so much for the support!

      • Courtney   July 3, 2013 2:09 pm

        Great! I just saw that the registration is not up and running yet. I will check back later to register. Great cause, and my prayers are with the family. I also have a little one (4 months old), and I cannot imagine going what they’re going through. Stay strong.

    I went to register and it said my transaction could not be completed, so I did it again and it said the same thing. I looked at my email and I received two emails saying that my payment was received. Is there a way I could get one of those payments back so I’m only paying $25 instead of $50 and being registered twice?

    • laynej3   July 7, 2013 4:50 pm

      I did notice that. I will get it sent back to you.

    • laynej3   July 7, 2013 4:54 pm

      You have been refunded.

      • Mandi   July 7, 2013 8:54 pm

        Thank you!

    I think other web site proprietors should take this website as an model, very clean and fantastic user friendly style and design, let alone the content. You are an expert in this topic!

  7. wonga   July 23, 2013 11:36 pm

    Wow, amazing blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your site is great, let alone the content!

  8. Davina Berky   August 5, 2013 7:18 am

    These templates appear awesome. I’ve a great idea for a single of them.

  9. Kati   August 21, 2013 3:58 pm

    How long can we register for the 5K online?

  10. Stefani   August 23, 2013 1:55 pm

    Are we able to bring our little ones in strollers or do we need to register them? Also, are you selling t-shirts in kids sizes as well?

    • laynej3   August 23, 2013 6:09 pm

      No you do not need to register them. This is all donation. and we were able to get a limited supply of kids shirts yes. So get there early and you will mostlikely be able to get one. Thank you!

  11. Steve Thaxton   August 23, 2013 8:10 pm

    Layne, for all the people who work at CLEARLINK that ordered shirts, are they going to be delivered to the company’s offices?

    • laynej3   August 23, 2013 10:32 pm

      Yes sir

  12. scott   August 28, 2013 5:33 am
