Submitted on behalf of the Brown Family:


"Parker's Place is a camp for children and their families who have lost a child to chronic illness or tragedy.  The camp honors the legacy of Parker Brown, a courageous little boy who lost his 6 year battle with cancer in 2009 -- leaving behind 2 brothers and 2 loving parents.

"In their own deep grief, Parker’s family decided to create a place for other families who have experienced such a loss -- to share their experience, find strength, renew their hope and connect with each other."


April 27th is a fundraiser Race 2 Place to benefit Parkers Place. Hurry and register TODAY (April 12) to receive a special edition techie shirt. Here is the Race 2 Place website that is a fundraiser for Parker's Place.
