Addison's 11th Birthday

We celebrated Addison's 11th Birthday on Monday, March 25th. It doesn't seem possible that it has been 8 years since we have been able to celebrate her birthday here on earth. We know that she got to see us celebrate her special day by eating her favorite foods at Cracker Barrel and decorating her grave site with spring flowers. We miss her dearly but know we will get to celebrate special days with her again soon!

Thank You Burger King

We want to say a huge THANK YOU to the Burger King restaurants in Elizabethtown, Radcliff and Brandenburg. They sold our rainbows last month in their restaurant and gave us a donation of $5,200 this year! We want to thank everyone who purchased a rainbow for $1.00 while visiting Burger King or who gave a donation. We truly appreciate all the support and we couldn't continue our mission to help those children battling cancer without you! Our daughters legacy continues to live and help other people going through similar battles as she went through because of all of the support from our local communities. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

8th Annual Addison Jo Blair 5K

The 8th Annual Addison Jo Blair 5K is scheduled for Saturday, May 19th at 8:00 am. Registration is open at www.active.com. When the Addison Jo Blair 5K began in 2011 it was done by several wonderful ladies who decided to put on a 5K to raise funds for our family as Addison was in the fight of her life battling cancer. Addison was given a race shirt, the #1 race bib and a goody bag that we hung in her hospital room. It was a wonderful event that brought so many together to show their support for our precious Addison and our family. When Addison passed and our family began the Addison Jo Blair Foundation we knew that the 5K was the event we wanted to focus on and call our own. Our foundation board has ran this event for the past 7 years and we have had a tremendous amount of support whether it be in sponsorship's, participants or community members helping us out on race day. We truly appreciate everyone who has been a part of making this event run so smoothly over the past 8 years. As a board we feel that it is now time for this event to come to an end and so this will be our last Addison Jo Blair 5K event. This is not the end to the Addison Jo Blair Foundation as we will continue our efforts of raising funds for kids with cancer, assisting with the needs of the Addison Jo Blair Cancer Center at Norton Children’s Hospital and doing all we can to help raise awareness for childhood cancer. We will still be working to raise funds to help these families who are going through such a tough journey. We would love to see all those who can make it and be a part of this great event at our last 5K on Saturday, May 19th. Thanks and God Bless!

Busy Month of March

Hello everyone! Just wanted to give a quick update as to what is going on this month with the Addison Jo Blair Foundation. We first want to thank the Burger King restaurants in Elizabethtown, Radcliff and Brandenburg for selling Addison Jo Blair Foundation rainbows this month. We appreciate these restaurants supporting our foundation and working so hard to sell these rainbows. We want to thank all of you who have purchased one as well. All of the money raised will go directly towards helping local children battling cancer at Norton Children's Hospital on the Addison Jo Blair Cancer Care Center. If you haven't had a chance to go inside a Burger King restaurant you should because several stores are spelling out Addison's name with the rainbows. It is truly AWESOME to see~! As you know the 6th Annual Addison Jo Blair 5K is right around the corner. It will take place on Saturday, May 21st in Glendale, KY. Registration is open at www.active.com. Due to the fees associated with active our foundation has absorbed the fee that is charged when you register online. So early registration is only $25 with no added fee from active. We look forward to seeing everyone at the race! Our foundation was able to take part in an amazing event last weekend here in Elizabethtown. We attended the St. Baldricks event where we got to witness countless people from our community take a stand and shave their heads in support of childhood cancer. It was amazing to witness and be a part of. A big thanks to all those who put together such a great event and those who raised money and shaved their heads. If you have any questions or concerns for us please email us at info@addisonjoblair.org
