    Our 2013 event is coming up quickly!

    It may not look like spring yet, but it is officially spring and the 4th Annual Hope in Grace Family Fun Run is only one month away! We have a few new exciting things planned for this year’s event. Tiki Tim’s food truck will be at our event selling their fabulous food and they have offered to donate a portion of their profits to Hope in Grace! Cakes from Grace will also be at our event with the delicious gourmet cupcakes they so generously donated to Hope in Grace. So please come hungry! You won’t be disappointed.

    The online auction opens on April 8th. Please click on the “Online Auction” link on the side of this page to preview the items that have already been donated to our auction. Chicagoland/Northwest Indiana friends, there are several auction items specifically for you! Please check them out.

    It is still not too late to donate items to our auction or sponsor our event. Although sponsorships will be gratefully welcomed up until the April 20th event, the deadline for Gold or Platinum level sponsors to have their logo on event T-shirts is March 25th which is less than 1 week away!

    Thank you to our first platinum sponsor, Cakes From Grace! Becky’s delicious cupcakes are inspired by her own Grace who lost her battle with CHD last fall. She, much like us, has vowed that her Grace must never be forgotten. We are grateful for her generosity as she contributes to our cause. Please join us on April 20th and help us thank her by enjoying one of her fabulous Gracie cupcakes!
