Join me in raising funds for the Vellinga Family
If you had the privilege of meeting or getting to know Andrea Vellinga while her husband Mike played for the Texas Brahmas, you met someone really special. As you all know, Andrea is continuing her battle back from devastating injuries suffered during the Indiana State Fair stage collapse on August 13th.
On May 19th, the Inaugural Big May 5k Run/Walk will be held in downtown Pendleton, Indiana at 9:00 am. The event will be comprised of a competitive run, fitness walk, kids fun-run and a birthday celebration for Andrea! All proceeds from the event will benefit the Vellinga’s for their financial obligations as well as Andrea’s medical care.
In the weeks leading up to the event, I would like to encourage/challenge you to help me raise funds for the Vellinga family. Andrea, Mike and Lydia need you!
Please visit the Texas Brahmas Insider team page here to make a donation. Thanks to Jennifer Strong for being the first on our team to donate!
I am planning a photo sale at an upcoming Brahmas game where you will have an opportunity to purchase some unique and one-of-a-kind signed, matted and framed photos to help raise money. More info on that to follow.
If you haven't seen this before, take a look at this great video from WISH-TV in Indianapolis from November 22, 2011:
