Forrest Spence 5K
On September 6 (4 days before what would have been Forrest's 1st birthday) the Forrest Spence 5K was held at Overton Park. It was an amazing day. The weather was perfect and the race went off without a hitch. Over 750 people competed with another 200 who signed up as ghost runners. $27,000 was raised for the Forrest Spence Fund which gives back to LeBonheur Children's Medical Center (primarily the Pediatric ICU where Forrest spent his life). There was food, games, music, and a ton of people. It was a beautiful day that I know Forrest would have loved.
