This story is generating a lot of attention

Dominic and Harrison are really generating a lot of buzz. A local radio station, KOSI 101, was giving information over the air about the 5K tomorrow. (We have 212 people registered to run/walk/chat tomorrow).

9News, the local NBC affiliate, has been taping Dominic and Harrison over the past two weeks and interviewed us moms yesterday. We are not sure when the story will be on, but it could be a tear jerker.

Fox31 News is coming to the race tomorrow, along with the Denver Post and the Villager paper from Greenwood Village. The Aurora Sentinel was out at the school on Monday and is going to run a story.

The support continues to be amazing. A group of girls made pipe cleaner bracelets and sold them after swim team practice for the boys. There was a lemonade stand last weekend. And we ran into a 3rd grader on Wednesday who told the boys that they were going to do a "snack stand" for the boys with 2 locations. How cute is that?

We want to thank everyone for their support in this journey; it is truly overwhelming. We will post photos from the run tomorrow and let you know how it goes.

Some wonderful Cottonwood families took time and patience to create a website for Dominic and Harrison that gives fundraising information. Check out for more information.

Local Fundraising Opportunities

The Cottonwood community has really stepped up to help our boys. In the school cafeteria, they are selling "Miles that Matter". For every $5 that is brought in, Dominic and Harrison's plane moves a mile closer to Germany. It is approximately 5,000 miles. In three days, the children at school have raised $1,930. UNBELIEVABLE!!!

On Saturday, May 23rd, there will be a 5K Fun Run for The Big Hope. It will start at Cottonwood Creek Elementary at 10:00 (start times will be staggered by last name) and will end up at Cherry Creek Vista Pool. There will be water bottles along the way and popsicles will be sold after the race. If you are interested, please e-mail me at

On Sunday, June 14th, our hairstylist will be doing Haircuts for Hope at the Blue Mist Salon. Claudia has been cutting our hair for years and she and 5 other stylists will be offering discounted haircuts with all proceeds going to The Big Hope. I will attach the flyer if you are interested.
