2018 Heitz of Heaven Hockey Tournament & 5K Run/Walk
September 8-9, 2018
Our sixth annual Heitz of Heaven event resulted in another magical weekend for our family! The weekend started on Saturday morning with the hockey tournament, which ran through the entire weekend. On Sunday we all laced up for the 5K run/walk and, although it was quite a downpour of rain, we could feel that Ryan was with us! This was the first year we had to deal with any type of bad weather, so we are experts now and will also have our back-up plan! Our race included an amazing auction, awesome music, 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.
