Chili's 5K Run/Walk

Dear Mothers of Multiples,

Many of you have asked what you can do to help Ben Sherman. Ben is the triplet son of long-time Mothers of Multiples member Jackie Sherman. Ben was diagnosed with leukemia and is currently receiving chemo treatments at St. Jude in Memphis.

Here is what you can do to help:

First, you can participate in the Chili's 5K (that's about 3 miles) Run/Walk benefiting St. Judes. The fundraiser is this Saturday, August 30th at 8am at Craighead Forest Park. The entry fee is $10 per person and proceeds will benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis where Ben is being treated. Entry forms need to be filled out and taken to Chili's restaurant at 1900 Stadium Blvd.

Second, t-shirts have been printed for the "Ben Sherman Team." You can email your T-Shirt order to h_acebo@neaclinic.com or fax orders to Rusty at 870-972-0356. Proceeds from the t-shirt will go to the Sherman Family. You are welcome to purchase a t-shirt even if you can't participate in the walk/run. Deadline for orders is noon on Wednesday, August 27th.

Thanks to everyone for their prayers and support of Ben!
