Thank You For Your Support!
Thanks to your support and the outstanding success of last year’s “Miles for Makayla”, our Foundation provided $15,000 in music, dance, and singing scholarships for children in memory of 6 year old Makayla Joy Sitton. See press release. While we currently do not have a 5K Run/Walk scheduled for 2013, our foundation will still be fulfilling its mission this year by providing thousands of dollars in scholarships for children. We thank you for your continued support as we work at “Changing lives... in memory of one.”
