'Remembering Hannah' Walk-a-thon is Today, Nov. 18

The afternoon will include a silent auction; items include four tickets to Six Flags, White Water, a two-night stay at The Lodge at Copperhead, dinner for two at Medieval Times, a pearl necklace and much more.

In partnership with Snellville Patch, Operation Appreciation is hosting a 'Remembering Hannah' 1-Mile Fun Run, walk-a-thon, and family fun activities in remembrance of Hannah Rinehart, a three time cancer survivor who lost the battle with a bacterial infection after enduring the amputation of both her arms and legs and spending 60+ days in the ICU at Northside Hospital.

The Remembering Hannah event will begin with a 1-Mile Fun Run at 1:30 p.m., and will be followed by a walk-a-thon from 2 – 5 p.m. For those not running or walking, there will be music and other activities, including carnival games, face painting, a bean bag toss tournament (cornhole), and other family friendly events. There will also be a silent auction of donated items from corporate sponsors and we will be accepting donations at the door.

104.7 The Fish will broadcast live from the event.

The goal is to help raise at least $20,000 for Operation Appreciation. Funds will go toward members of the National Guard who need some extra help. Operation Appreciation was vital in getting Mark Rinehart the money he needed to cover medical expenses and other items during Hannah's hospitalization. They will continue to assist him until he is back on his feet.

For questions, please email OA.RememberingHannah@gmail.com or Crystal.Huskey@patch.com. Let us know if you would like to volunteer or sponsor the event in any way.
