Mark Your Calendars for the Daisy Run
July 27, 2013
During the month of November we'd like to give thanks to all those who have been on this journey with us. Recently, Meghan Kopp (Kim's oldest daughter) and Joanne Peterson (Kim's mom) visited St. Joseph Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Center. There they were able to visit with the nurses and staff members and thank them for being so caring and giving to Kim and all the other patients. As a token of gratitude, Joanne worked her magic and made delicious fall cookies.
The Kim Kopp Charitable Foundation has been created to help families in the Vail Valley:
- manage the day-to-day tasks of running a household (food shopping, transportation, housekeeping, meal preparation, emotional support, nutritional coaching, etc.)
- raise money for afflicted families and promote awareness of cancer through the annual Kim Kopp Daisy Run in Vail, CO
- cope with the loss of a family member afflicted with cancer and deal with a terminally ill parent
About the Kim Kopp Daisy Run:
The Kim Kopp Daisy Run was created to celebrate and honor the life of Kim Kopp. Kim passed from a rare form of cancer. On July 29, 2012, her family and friends will honor her memory with a 1K Fun Run and 5K Run/Walk in the magnificent Vail Valley, a place that holds special meaning for Kim and her family.
To commemorate Kim's amazing, yet abbreviated life; to raise money for a local family in the the Valley with a terminally ill parent much like Kim and to raise awareness about the devastating realities of cervical cancer.
They were Kim's favorite flowers. The illustrations you see on these pages were drawn by Kim's children Soren, Allie-Grace, Ethan, and Meghan, now ages 5, 13, 15, and 16 respectively.
Please join us in Vail to run in Kim's memory, cheer on the competitors on course, or by simply donating to the cause. All proceeds from the inaugural Kim Kopp Daisy Run went to directly to Melanie Hartnell and her family. They fought the same fight that Kim did in her final days, weeks, months and years.
