Seattle Rock and Roll Marathon

Last weekend 8 people (Wyatt's Warriors) participated in the Seattle Rock and Roll 1/2 & full marathon. We raised over $7800.00 for Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy. We talked to other racers along the way bragging about Wyatt and educating people on PPMD and Duchenne MD, especially. It was a humbling experience, in fact, I cried when I walked across the start line. So much has happened to our family in the last 18 months, that I guess it all hit me, that I was there walking 13 miles because I have a sick kid. A kid and thousands like him, who need reseach money to give them a better life. I was amazed by people wishing us well, offering to pray for Wyatt, etc.

A speical thanks to Keith and Alisa Partington
Shylah & Jaime Guzman
Cass Richards
Bill Staffenhagen

Without their fundraising efforts and participation in the race, we would have never raised so much money. I'm honored to have each and everyone of them in my life.

The Staffenhagens

We have been a busy group. Here's what's been happening in a nutshell.

Tom - working hard, running practically everyday, relaxing (not too much)

Melissa - taking care of the kids, driving, taking care of the house, NOT running everyday.

Leigha - almost 16, practicing driving, planning 16th bday extravaganza, made the LSHS cheer team for next year

Anthony - only 13 days of school left - Yeah, being a great big brother to Wyatt

Travis - Baseball, baseball, baseball, need I say more (those of you baseball families out there, now exactly what I'm saying), starting a tournament in a few days, got his first cell phone.

Brady - Preschool is over. Pretty much stays in his jammies all day. Has the biggest imagination ever.

Wyatt - 25 pounds now and growing everyday. Talks all the time. My favorite is, "HI MOM!" so cute. The Rock and Roll Marathon for PPMD is less than a month away. "Team Wyatt" raised over $6400 so far.

Baby Wyatt is talking like crazy and just being adorable.
