The First Annual Berry Family 5K, Insurance Journal 1M Family Fun Run and Dr Paul Rubin and Frisco Kids Dental 50 yard dash was held on March 24, 2012 at Granite Park in Plano, TX. We had over 1,200 in attendance and raised more than $35,000! 100% of the proceeds will be donated directly to the Joshua and Robin Berry Children's Trust in Houston, TX.
On July 3rd, 2011, while returning from an annual family road trip in Colorado back to their home in Houston, Texas, the Berry Family found themselves victims of a horrific and tragic fatal car accident. Their minivan, carrying parents Joshua and Robin Berry and their children Peter age 9, Aaron age 8, and Willa age 6, was hit head on by another vehicle that had crossed into their lane of traffic. The parents, Joshua and Robin Berry, were tragically killed leaving their 3 children behind. While the children did survive the crash, both boys sustained serious spinal cord injuries and they are both paralyzed below the waist.
There is a significant need to raise funds to aid the children's ongoing needs, including medical rehabilitation, physical therapy, psychological support and education.
Thank you for your support of the First Annual Berry Family 5K and we look forward to seeing you in 2013 for an even bigger and better event! Check back in June 2012 for information about the 2013 event.
