This year will be the 35th Annual Sweet Potato Festival!!!
All proceeds of this years 5K will be donated to the Mason Family!!
Carter Mason, a 3rd grader at Alba-Golden ISD, was diagnosed with Lymphoma this past March. This sweet boy has been through as many chemo treatments as his doctors are comfortable with him having. He had scans and tests ran a couple of weeks ago hoping to show that he was cancer free. The Masons did not receive the news we were all praying for. September 18th, Carter had surgery in hopes to remove what was left of his tumor. It's about a two week wait to find out if Carter is now cancer free! Be praying for him as he is recovers from surgery.
Our whole community is so emotionally invested and in prayer daily for this this brave boy and his family. Carter has been through so much in the past 6 months but I can't imagine as a parent watching your baby go through all of the treatments, side effects and emotional stress that comes with it. Let's show our small town love to Carter, his parents, Tessa and Henry and his big brother, Connor!!
Come run or walk for Carter! There will be a kids division this year encouraging Carter's friends, class mates and all kiddos to "Dash for Carter Cash"!
