5K Walk/Run benefit for Luke Schoenbauer on June 5, 2010.

    Luke Schoenbauer is a classmate of Alice's at St. Wenceslaus School and Luke's family and extended family are friends of our family and extended family. 

    In December of 2009 Luke was diagnosed  with Osteosarcoma (bone cancer).  Luke started chemotherapy soon after.  In March of 2010 Luke had his left leg amputated above the knee with a procedure called rotationplasty.  There is still a long road ahead for Luke with both chemotherapy (continuing through summer) and then learning to be mobile with his prosthetic.  
 

   This year has been a year of learning for all of us.  Through Luke our family has learned how special every day is and what a gift it is to spend time with family and friends.  Luke and his family have an amazing amount of courage and strength and that has been passed on to all of us. 

    Alice's 3rd grade teacher, Becky Malecha, is organizing the Lace Up For Luke event on June 5th in New Prague. The Schmid family is walking/ running in the event along with volunteering our services through-out the day at the event.
 

    The Lace up For Luke event on June 5th will raise money for Luke's medical expenses and future prostheses.  We would be grateful for any donation to help support Luke and his family.  If you wish to join us on the 5th of June for the event just let us know.  It starts at 8:00 am with the first walk/run beginning at 9:00 am.  There will be concessions, carnival games and a DJ all morning.

    Thanks in advance for your support.  We greatly appreciate it.  Please keep Luke and his family in your prayers.
