Last night we had the amazing honor of hosting a dinner for many of the wonderful people who have been impacted by Sydnee's crash. In attendence were Vicky and Joe, who were in the vehicle with Sydnee, along with their families. The people who cared for Sydnee at the crash scene, including the nurse who performed CPR at the scene and a witness who prayed over Sydnee along with the State Highway patrol officers who responded to the scene and investigated the crash. We also had our favorite ICU nurse, who took wonderful care of Sydnee at the hospital. Numerous family, friends, and our pastor were there, who supported us through several sleepless nights at the hospital. We also had the privilege of having one of the organ donation recipients along with staff from Lifeline of Ohio who helped us through the donation process. Additionally, we had some great friends who are helping us to spread the message about the dangers of distracted driving. It was our pleasure to share with them the video that was produced by Impact Teen Drivers, which we'll be using to take this message to area schools. It was a truly amazing night, and we feel blessed by God with all of the amazing support we have.
I'll be doing my first school assembly tomorrow at Loveland High School in Cincinnati. We'll also be participating in a press conference on May 17th for the kick-off of Licking County's Click It or Ticket campaign. I'll also be doing three school assemblies at Gahanna High School on May 19th, sharing Sydnee's story with many friends who knew her well. We're confident that Sydnee will save many lives through sharing this message.
We're also putting together a Remember Sydnee team to participate in the Dash for Donations 5K on July 12th, sponsored by Lifeline of Ohio. We've seen the amazing impact Sydnee's donation has had on one family, and believe that sharing this with others is a key part of Sydnee's legacy.
Thank you to everyone who has been there to love and support us during the most difficult time of our lives.
