Wheels for Bri was an amazing event! After months of planning and anticipation, we had an extraordinary day! I am so grateful for everyone who came out and for everyone who supported the event. I have never experienced anything like this before. The outpouring of love and encouragement was incredible!
It was wonderful to have Mayor Anesh get the runners ready for the race! Brianna’s big sister Bridget got to send them off with a “Ready, Set, Go!” into the megaphone!
My friend from college was one of the 5k race winners! Go Villanova!
Runners approaching the finish line!
Brianna’s big brother Joseph’s teacher Mrs. Marra ran the 5k! It was wonderful to have so many teachers and students participate from the kids’ schools – Grant, Riley and Lakeview Elementary School! So many from school came out!
Brianna enjoyed the live music!
It was awesome to have Miss Gross be apart of the day too!
Family came from Western Pennsylvania to be apart of the big day!
Friends came from great distances too!
My friend Crystal brought her 3 week old newborn Rose.
Brianna liked watching Mayor Anesh get dunked!

Bri met two service dogs and got to pet them!
All in all, it was an amazing day! I am so grateful for everyone who worked so hard to organize this event and volunteered to make it a huge success! Many people are sending me their pictures and video so I’ll post more from the day as I get it! Thank you!
