Team Skylor 5k run/walk

Saturday July 22, 2017 Sharon Woods Metro Park

Register for the Team Skylor 5k.

Race Day Schedule
Race Day Registration Starts- 7:30 a.m.
5k Run/Walk – 8:30 a.m.

On February 27, 2014, Skylor was diagnosed with brain cancer and from that moment on, his motto in life was “Fear Motivates”. Fear motivates positivity – he lived each day making sure his life was better than it was yesterday. Fear motivates love – he continued to make sure people knew he loved them and that he was always there for them. He often said, “Love your life. Things could be a lot worse”. Fear motivates strength – despite his battle with cancer, he always pushed himself to be greater.

Skylor wasn’t only an amazing son and a wonderful big brother, he was a talented artist who had a passion for graffiti art. But, his passion didn’t stop there. He was a proud member of the Olentangy Marching Band, an active member of the Delaware County AFJROTC, volunteering his time to recruit members and helping the community. He also volunteered as an Assistant Coach for OYAA Jr. Drill Team, as well as volunteered with Habitat For Humanity during spring break his junior and senior years. He had a calling and he lived his life fulfilling it.

On October 30, 2016, Skylor lost his fight with cancer. During his battle, Skylor bravely and so gracefully provided hope, courage, strength, and love to so many. In honor of this wonderful young man who left us too soon, this race continues. Proceeds will be used to fund an annual scholarship to an Olentangy High School senior pursuing a college degree. A gifted graffiti artist and creative author, Skylor had hoped to attend college. We’re going to see to it that those dreams are passed on to many, many teenagers who follow in Skylor’s footsteps.

A Mom’s Love; Kidney Donor and a Real-Life Super Hero!

A Mom’s Love; Kidney Donor and a Real-Life Super Hero!

Meet Max, your average 3-year-old little boy. He loves superheroes like Captain America and dump trucks. In late October 2015, Max became quite ill and was hospitalized at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus for roughly two months. It was learned that his kidneys had stopped functioning properly, requiring regular hemodialysis (now on peritoneal dialysis). Eventually, the family was told, Max would need a kidney transplant.

Amazingly, Max’s mother is a match and he will receive a transplant at Nationwide Children’s Hospital on December 7th, 2016. As for now, Mighty Max continues to inspire everyone he comes in contact with – friends, family, neighbors, nurses, and strangers alike!

Dot’s Tots Foundation is blessed to be able to support this amazing family and their courageous Super Hero on a journey to good health. Through lawn care services and providing meals/groceries to the family, Dot’s Tots has received far more than it has given.

We’re rooting for you, Max (and Mommy)!
