stach contest for hungtington's disease

my dear friend maggie's family has a history of Huntington's disease. maggie has a chance of having the disease herself. for the last couple years her family has done a fundraiser to raise money and awareness for this disease! it is time to find a cure!!! they have a stach contest every year. they guys have be be clean shaved feb 14th and they have about 4 weeks to grow the best stach they can. they then have to dress to match the stach . mark and i went for the american chopper look. mark can grow some MAD facial hair so we had fun with it! he ended up winning the largest stach :) it was a fun night with friends raising money for a good cause. with the sponsors all the guys got they ended up raising about $4000!

we are already looking forward to next year!

we love you maggie and pray everyday that this disease will not touch you!

Thank you so much for this wonderful blog post! I love you and your sweet family so very much! This all meant so much to me and my family. I wish there could be a cure for HD. Maybe there will be someday. I know God is always with me and watching over my family! Thank you so much for joining us in the mustache contest. Mark has a gift of growing one super sized stache! It was so much fun and a fun way of doing something to help HD. We love you guys and are so thankful for the wonderful friendship that we have!
