$2,500 raised at Trey’s Avengers 1st Annual Cornhole Tournament

Wow!  What a day we had yesterday!  Our hearts are just over-flowing with gratitude for everyone involved with our first ever Cornhole Tournament!  $2,500 for JDRF! Where do I even start!

We filled THIRTY ONE of our thirty two spots – so close!  And we had a great group of people out.  Tons of spectators and friends!

We appreciate everyone who came out to join us – those who played, everyone who donated or bought raffle tickets, our volunteers, our friends and the fine folks at our sponsor, Hurleys!  The kid’s had a great time in our kid’s are and on stage, calling time, announcing games and pulling raffle tickets!   They were naturals.

One of this tournaments special rules was the ‘Cheats for Charity’ – $3 let a team jump around, steal bags and slap them out of the way all to increase their chances at victory.  We had one team swat a bag into the Bocce court!  Soo much fun to watch and of course, meant lots of extra cash for JDRF!

In the end, after almost 5 hours of play, our champions were crowned, winning a set of custom made cornhole boards.  Second and third place team took home Prize packs donated by Innsbrook merchants.  Congrats gentlemen, you all played hard!


Thank you all for your support!

2013 JDRF One Walk – Richmond, VA

What a crazy and unexpected year it’s been and what better way to end it than this Walk.  Almost a year ago, Trey received his original diagnosis of Type 1 – it was a scary and emotional time as we started our journey into the world of Type 1.  A world we will not leave until a cure is found.

When our family decided to join the JDRF Walk for a Cure in July it was mostly a leap of faith.    A “well…. why not” moment.  We didn’t have big plans, we were just going to see what happened.  And well, all of you, our amazing friends and family happened.    We felt love and support from across the country as so many people send kind words and donations to JDRF and so many of our friends joined us on Walk Day.  With your help, Treys Avenger’s raised over $7,200 in our first year!  Thank you!

And let’s just say that Walk day was perfect.  Weather was perfect, walk was beautiful!   And Trey’s Avengers won the tee shirt design contest!!
