*Reminder: This is a rain or shine event*

For behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land

About the Cause

Sally Deans was our daughter and was sister to Sam and Chandler. Sally’s complex medical conditions were not compatible with this life and she passed away on April 4th, 2017 at 35 weeks gestation. In her short, but powerful life, she deepened our Faith and enriched our family beyond measure. To honor Sally and spread her beauty to the world, we are driven to raise funds for Welcome Home Angel, an amazing organization that benefits both children living with complex medical condition and the families that love and support them.

Welcome Home Angel (WHA) is a local non-profit 50 1(c)3 organization that brings joy and relief to children with chronic and physically debilitating illness or injury, ages 4 through 18, who live in Wilmington, NC and surrounding areas. WHA provides a makeover of the child’s bedroom creating a healthy and cheerful environment in which to live and recover. Welcome Home Angel exists to provide relief to the lives of these children and their families through aesthetic changes, structural modifications, and emotional support.

These makeovers can be minor (primarily aesthetic) costing approximately $7,500 or major (structural as well as aesthetic) costing between $15,000 and $20,000.

Please help us help these precious children and their families! Sign up to run or walk with us on April 7th or simply donate or sponsor this event!
