This blog is an uncensored look into my soul. I am writing this as part of my healing process, but am leaving it public so others can follow me through my journey.

Hailey's "Amayzing" Race!

Hey All-

As most, or all, of you know when Hailey passed away we started a foundation, with all the monetary donations we received, in her name to help others who have children with special needs and were experiencing financial difficulties.  Below is an email from my husband about the race we're having to support The Hailey Mayz Foundation.  I hope you can all attend!

Hey Everyone-
Sorry for the impersonal email - many of you have been asking, so I thought I would send out all the race details.  Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any additional questions – and strap on those running shoes!!
What is The aMAYZing Race?
The Hailey Mayz Foundation and the Valley of Fire Marathon have partnered in a special race event taking place this November outside of Las Vegas, Nevada.  All proceeds from the race go to the Foundation and will be used to help families with special needs children who are experiencing financial difficulties.  Go to for details.

Who can race?
The race is open to anyone, so please join us (and bring a friend!)
Where is the race?
Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada.  It is a little over 1 hour north of Las Vegas, and about 20 minutes south of Overton, Nevada.

I can't get to the race, so how can I participate?
If running isn't your thing, or if you’re just too far away to participate, you can sponsor a member of the military to run a "Shadow Race".  This means they will run the aMAYZing race on the same day, at the same time and the same distance - only they will be doing it from where they are stationed in Afghanistan.  We have quite a few of our troops already signed up and looking for sponsors, so please let us know if you are interested in supporting this cause.  All sponsored military personnel will receive finisher's medals and shirts.  Click here to sponsor one of our troops today! ($70 each).  (Cut and paste this link into your browser if the link doesn’t work: )
