Here are two fun ways you can get out with your family and support a courageous local girl this weekend. Avery Huffman is currently undergoing treatment for an inoperable, cancerous brain tumor. You can help by joining in a fun run or walk at lovely Roegner Park in Auburn Saturday the 22nd, or by going to a silent auction that evening (Yes, you can still donate items)!
I would love to hear that there was a big, giant turn out of SFM readers from the Lakeland Hills, Auburn area. Here’s some more scoop sent in by some of Avery’s many fans.
First, the Running For Avery 5k Run/Walk, spearheaded by several people from Lakeland Hills, starts off the morning at Roegner Park in Auburn at 10 a.m. Suggested Donations: $20 per registration. Kids 12 & Under are free-Bring Coins for the coin drive! Head here for more details on Running For Avery
ALL MONEY raised goes to the Avery Huffman Donation Fund! And the best news of all? Avery will be there too to join us in the walk/run.
Later that evening we’re looking forward to a fun night with an Auction, drinks and food, at the Lakeland Hills Community Center! Money raised will help offset the astronomical medical bills the Huffman’s are experiencing. Come join us and support Avery Strong! Head here for more details on the AveryStrong Auction.

And now an offer from SFM: If you own a family friendly business near Auburn, and you make a donation valued at 200.00 or more to the AveryStrong auction, I will give you a month of free advertising here. Your donation must be a new one, and this is open to the first two businesses who contact me and mention this. My contact email is firstname.lastname@example.org, and advertising here is a GREAT way to reach area families. I promise we will make a BIG splash for you.
