 Dear Friends of the M.O.M.S. Park,

 Memories of Missing Smiles, Inc. (M.O.M.S.) is excited to announce our upcoming M.O.M.S. Day Dash at Jervey Gantt Park. This Mother’s Day Run/Walk will be held on Sunday, May 11, 2014. Our run has been renamed the "M.O.M.S. Day Dash" to highlight our mission of celebrating our children’s lives, the amazing time between the birth and death dates, "THE DASH". If you have not had the opportunity, we encourage you to read the inspirational poem "The Dash" by Linda Ellis at www.linda-ellis.com

This 5K Run/Walk through the park is a beautiful way to begin Mother's Day WITH your Mom, HONORING the memory of your Mom, or celebrating the PRIVILEGE of being (or having been) a Mom. This event is an uplifting experience, on what can otherwise be an emotionally draining holiday for bereaved families. Exercise can be very therapeutic, and we want to encourage our families to continue a healthy lifestyle that is physically, nutritionally and emotionally healing.
We look forward to seeing you this Mother’s Day morning, and hope that you will gather family and friends to join you for a special M.O.M.S. Day tradition.  The proceeds from this annual event will be used toward the continued maintenance and upkeep of the Memories of Missing Smiles Children's Memorial Park and Reflection Pond at Jervey Gantt.  This park is dedicated to Remembering the Lives and Smiles of our children who have died.  We invite you to visit our website to learn more about (M.O.M.S.) Memories of Missing Smiles, Inc. (www.memoriesofmissingsmiles.org)

 On behalf of the Board of Directors of Memories of Missing Smiles, we invite you to be a part of a fundraiser that is not only measured in proceeds, but in love.  Thank you in advance for your support and generosity.
