Rebound is proud to be a part of such a worthwhile event. The numbers are in now and the Bend community really stepped up to support the Angel Flow 5K and Anabelle’s fund as well as the MLD Foundation.
The race director had this to say:
“To all of the amazing volunteers for the Angel Glow…
thank you from the bottom of my heart!
It seems as if there should be a better expression for someone to use when they are so overwhelmingly blessed beyond anything they could have ever comprehended, but I guess thank you will have to suffice.
What began as a “fun idea” to Alex Wilson on September 9th turned into one of the biggest inaugural run/walks Bend Oregon has ever seen, Anabelle’s Angel Glow!
My goal when this started was for the Wilson family to know that they weren’t alone in their journey with Anabelle. I had hoped to rally at least 100 people and raise $2,000. Because of each and everyone one of you, this amazing event was made possible! We had almost 800 registered participants and a profit of nearly $23,000!! The money was divided evenly between Anabelle’s Fund and the MLD Foundation. Thanks to you, Anabelle’s quality of life can be that much better and there will be hope for other children diagnosed with MLD in the future.
Again, thank you isn’t quite sufficient, but I hope by being a part of this magical night, you also received a blessing you won’t quickly forget.
With sincere gratitude,
