March For Marsh & Marsh Madness Turn Out

March for Marsh is already here, can you believe it! It begins tomorrow at Idlewild Park 8am so come and run/walk for Abby.
Abby's new hair cut, donated to Great Lengths.

On August 18, our friends, family and the community came together at Turfway Park in Florence to support our precious daughter, Abby Marsh, who was severely injured in a motor vehicle accident in May. The outpouring of love we experienced that night was completely overwhelming. Words cannot describe how much your support means to Abby and to our whole family during this dark time. We know we will not have to face this journey by ourselves and that is priceless!   

Over 1200 people attended the fundraiser and we know time didn't allow us to thank you all personally that night so on Abby's behalf, we would like now to publicly thank everyone who came and all the volunteers who worked to make the evening a success, it was flawlessly executed. Thanks to the countless hours of planning and coordination by the committee and the dozens of volunteers who prepared food,  made baskets, sold raffle tickets, decorated the hall, and pounded the pavement to solicit donations for the raffles. The venue was spectacular, the food was amazing and the entertainment was fabulous with great performances by Code 9, the Ben and Joe Duo and by our favorite DJ, Ryan Schwartz. 

Thanks also to all the generous individuals and businesses who donated products and services for the raffle baskets, and many thanks to the wonderful Hutcherson family and to Josh for donating his time and generating publicity for Abby and the event. The money raised will aid in the expenses of a wheelchair accessible van, the remodeling of our house, outpatient rehab, and medical bills. You all helped to lift at least one burden from us, and for that we are so grateful.

We are so grateful for all your prayers as well. Abby said it best when channel 19 interviewed her, "She can't do this without God." We are most of all, thankful that we dont have to this without Him. Every day is a walk of trust in God who has been faithful and gracious. We have woven one of Abby's favorite Bible verses into our hearts - Josh. 1:9 "Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid, for the Lord your God goes with you wherever you go."

We love you all so much. What an awesome community we live in! 

Thank you and God bless you! 
The Marsh family
