2012 sMiles 4 Sammy 5K Highlight Video
Christopher Martin from Twelve Volt Media shared his talents with sMiles 4 Sammy and created our 2012 Highlight video. It’s a beautiful tribute to a very special day! We hope you enjoy it!
In the News at the Ripken Foundation!
Check out the In the News section on the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation’s Webpage, http://www.ripkenfoundation.org/news.php and scroll to the August 3rd entry! The Ripken Foundation asked us to send in an article and pictures of the silent auction and 5K, but we never imagined that they would be posted front and center on their main webpage!
To give you an update on the progress of the field: To date, $65,000 has been raised for the field. The Ripken Foundation and the East Wilco Challenger League of Hutto are working hard on grant applications, sponsorships, etc. to raise the remaining $285,000 to make this All Ability field a reality in Central Texas. If you have some time, go to http://www.ripkenfoundation.org/ydpark.php and check out the many cities that the Ripken Foundation is impacting. It’s amazing all that they have done to help children with special needs and disadvantaged youth through these fields and the game of baseball! It takes time (sometimes years!) to complete projects like this, but both the Ripken Foundation and the EWCL are committed to seeing this project completed for the youth in our area.
Our group was blessed to be able to raise money in memory of Samantha for this awesome cause. We are grateful that there are groups like the Ripken Foundation and East Wilco Challenger Sports that we can support!
And the numbers are in!!
Pictures are in!
Thank you to Robin Winkles, our wonderful photographer for our 5K! We hope you’ll enjoy looking through them!
Ahh, the final 48 hours!!!

Tshirt Deadline Approaches!
We would love to have you join us for the 1st Annual sMiles 4 Sammy Family Fun Run & 5K on Saturday, May 26th and REGISTER NOW!
Run, jog, walk or stroll to raise money to build an all abilities baseball field right here in Williamson County for children with special needs! The Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation has pledged $50,000 for this project, the City of Taylor has donated land for the field in their sports complex and all proceeds from this event will be used to help with the remaining cost of the field.
This year’s fun run will include a timed option for the serious runner. Serious runners will complete their 5K on a course around Vista Ridge High School and Henry Middle School. The untimed runner, walker, and/or stroller will use the same course or may use the track if a shorter route is preferred. Any youngster (or the young at heart) that is registered for the race is invited to participate in the 1K Ranger Trek with the Ranger athletes following the 5K! Come have some family fun and help us to raise money for a great cause!
Let’s make a difference in our community together!
