The Fifity for Rikki and The Loop for Lucas

This is a posting for my Hoosier friends who still read the blog about an important event that you can take part in and make a positive impact in your community.

It's an event organized by my brother and sister in law with the help of lots of people they know, to celebrate the lives to two people who were special to them, Rikki and Lucas, who lost their lives in a car accident in July. They were motivated to do something to celebrate the life of their friend and her young son, and in doing so have put together a wonderful event to help other families.

The Fifty for Rikki and Loop for Lucas takes place on October 6th and you do need to hop on that link to sign up to participate. The event directly benefits The Indiana Organ Procurement Organization.

Rikki and Lucas are gone forever, but their organs were able to be donated, so that others might have a chance to have days like these, sitting happily in the arms of someone they love on a sunshiney day.

This is Rikki with Lucas what I understand is a few weeks before they died. 

If you're close, I urge you to participate to celebrate the lives of these special people.

I didn't know them. But it doesn't really matter, now does it?

Come on Hoosiers. Let's ride.
