To everyone that came out Thanksgiving morning to participate in the fourth annual Ian Michael Burgett Thanksgiving Day 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run we want to say “thank you” for your support! It was a beautiful morning to remember and celebrate Ian, and the outpouring of love and support was truly amazing.
Special thanks to our banner sponsors, Wharf Hill Brewing Company, Farmers Bank and Hall Automotive, for the great banners and signs advertising the event, and to VA Displays for producing them.
Also a huge thank you to the event sponsors: Smithfield Station, Independent Business Alliance, The Grobbel Group at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, Nansemond-Suffolk Academy and the Class of 2012 at NSA, Bon Vivant, Craig Stallings & Associates Inc. and Enochs Eye Care PLLC.
To those that provided services, gift cards, food and flowers, we thank you as well: WSI Pro Marketing, Patton, Wornam, Hatten & Diamondstein, Food Lion, Farm Fresh, Spring Lake Bottled Water, Bush Entertainment, Harris Teeter of Suffolk, BJ’s of Chesapeake, and First Colony Engraving.
To the participants of the event we want to say thank you for helping us remember Ian and raise funds for future scholarships in his memory. All proceeds from the event support the Ian Michael Burgett Memorial Fund, a 501©3 non-profit established in April 2012 in memory of Ian, our son, Sam’s brother and a funny, kind, caring friend to many. We miss him each and every day.
