2017 Heitz of Heaven Hockey Tournament & 5K Run/Walk
September 8-10, 2017
Our fifth annual Heitz of Heaven event resulted in another magical weekend for our family! The weekend started on Friday evening with the hockey tournament, which ran through the entire weekend. On Sunday we all laced up for the 5K run/walk and Ryan was shining his bright light on us again! Our race included an amazing auction, awesome music, the sweet smell of Bubba's Kettle Corn, pizza, cookies, bananas and drinks. We were honored to have the very talented Ashley Yankello sing the National Anthem. Our family is blessed to have so many people come together in memory of our angel.
