Decision Points, a book written by President George W. Bush was offered a few weeks ago for bidding on DarkeJournal to benefit “Mandy’s Sunshine Run”.
The sixth annual running of this race will be held in the Greenville city park on September 17, 2011. Mandy Green’s family and friends organized this 5K Run/Walk to help fund the Mandy Green Class of 2013 Memorial Scholarship Fund at the HOPE Foundation established by Jesse and Tammy Green in memory of their daughter. Mandy passed away on May 10, 2005 after a four and a half year battle with Wilm’s Tumor, a rare childhood cancer. She was ten years old. Her classmates were very supportive and protective of Mandy during her struggle with cancer through the years. The fund was established to reflect and payback the loving support Mandy received from her classmates and friends.
The winning bid was offered by Pete Hemer, who also received a bookplate personally autographed by President Bush. For information and registration see: http://www.mandysfunrun.org/.
