Yum! Those Donuts Were Tasty!

The Donut Dash was a success! Even the rain stayed away! I can't say thank you enough for all the generosity and support. It was a really, really fun event. William was so happy to be feeling well enough to participate and even got the first donut of the day (see interview below). It was so wonderful to see so many friends, doctors, and nurses there to all support an organization that touches our lives in a big way. It felt like a giant family reunion because we have grown to love our hospital family as much as our dear friends and family. A big thank you to Zack for once again putting together a fantastic and successful event! $35,000 was donated and over 1,200 people participated. 4 years ago, when it started, 25 people participated and just over $1500 was raised. It has come a long way 3 years later. Check out William's interview with the local news (and for those Highland High alumni, that's Richard Sharp in the anchor chair).

Here's some photo highlights. (Sorry about the poor resolution. I brilliantly forgot my camera and had to use my phone!)

Sweet friends. Cole stayed right by William's side the whole time!

Silly friends! Thanks, Aidan!


  1. I love the photos of all the smiles and the tee shirts, after all, every grandma loves matching shirts. It was great to talk with Will today. Keep on dashing team William!

  2. It was so great to share the day with all of you! And I just can't get enough of that happy smile on William's face! X-) Thanks for letting me be an adopted Murdock for the weekend! Sure love you guys, and look forward to many more Dashes, and many more years of friendship! <3
