We are thrilled that Jenna and Brian are expecting their first child (and our first granddaughter!) in December!  We learned in July that Merritt Leigh Davis has spina bifida (SB).  While we are deeply concerned by her diagnosis, we are now feeling much more positive and optimistic, thanks to some encouraging test results and consultations with several SB specialists.

The 2017 Virginia Beach Walk-N-Roll for Spina Bifida is the biggest fundraiser of the year supporting the Mid-Atlantic Region Chapter of the Spina Bifida Association.  Jenna and Brian seized this perfect opportunity for all of us to get involved with this wonderful organization.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

There are several ways to get involved/help support our team.  We would be honored for our family and friends to:

  • DONATE!* (Click "Support Me" Above) We would sincerely appreciate donations (of any amount) to help our team reach our fundraising goal.  The money we raise will go directly to the SBA to help support local community programs and services for all individuals affected by SB, as well as national awareness, prevention, and research initiatives.
  • WALK WITH US! We invite you to join us in person at the Walk-N-Roll, which will be held at Mt. Trashmore Park in Virginia Beach, VA on October 28th at 9:00AM.  YOU DO NOT NEED TO REGISTER SEPARATELY!  Just e-mail us at milesformerritt@gmail.com to RSVP for the walk, and dont forget to order your T-shirt (see below)!
  • ROCK A SHIRT!  On the day of the event, our team will be wearing their Miles for Merritt T-shirts (special thanks to Butch Edenton).  If you can’t join us at the event, you are still more than welcome to purchase a shirt(s) to show your support!  Click here to order shirts.  The last day to order shirts is Friday, October 6th.  Note: T-shirts are available at cost, and do not include a donation.  T-shirts will be brought to the event (for those joining us in person) or mailed via USPS.  For those not joining us in person, please include your mailing address in the "private note" field of the online checkout page.  Contact milesformerritt@gmail.com with any questions or concerns!  For more information regarding Merritt and her diagnosis, please visit Jenna and Brian's website.

Thank you so very much for your love and support.  Merritt is so lucky to have an army of loving family members and friends!

With love,

Terri and Bill Davis
