My family and I have known Emily’s family for many years and our daughter Molly was friends with Emily. We have participated in the annual 5K run to support scholarships for such a worthy cause. It is an incredible way for Emily’s family to remember her while helping the Uintah Basin to be a better place to live. The love and enthusiasm that the whole family puts into this event is remarkable!
Had the chance in October to run the 5K that is held each year to raise money in Emily's name. It was heartwarming to see all the people from our community who turned out to support Emily's family, and to see the good things her family is doing to give back to the community in her memory. Before the run, we heard from the most recent recipient of the Blowishes for Emily Scholarship. The money she received is helping her earn an education that will change her life. In my mind, that a blessing that is definitely worth celebrating and supporting.
