Your participation in this endeavor is essential in making it a worthwhile effort. I can only hope that you are aware of the Natalee Holloway disappearance. It was around this time last year that she was preparing to make the, now infamous, senior trip to Aruba.

It is hard to believe that it has been a whole year, and yet, America still has no answers on the whereabouts of our young daughter. In the meantime, her adamantly devoted family fights to maintain their spot on our televisions, financial backing for the fight for answers and the protection of our children traveling abroad, and finally, still attempting to go about their daily routine without their daughter.

All of this is more than any of us would want to endure or purchase. However, we can help. Whether you are a runner, volunteer, or just wish to donate to our run, you can make a difference. I have no affiliation to the family nor the case, I am simply a resident of the city of Birmingham. I am young mother. But, I feel like I can do something to help this family because, like everyone, I have had days when I needed someone and did not know where to start...I hate the thought of this family feeling that way everyday for an entire year.

They need your help and I need your help making this happen. of yourself for no other reason than that it just feels good is the most contagious, most rewarding, and the most beneficial.

Ashley M. Cockrell,

Race Director

The Race is really stalled by the New York Civil Case Judge. Quite often, the state judge can be inflenced by the local corrupt city officials.

It is a Race with time, and the time is running out for the Judge. In the New York Civil Judge Circuit, the "60 days grace period" is the norm, meaning by July 17 she has to come up with a ruling on the Civil Case. Beyond that, it will be viewed as a "Conspiracy" by the American people. Is Aruba is much more important to the Current Administration than our missing American Daughter Natalee? The Natalee Case has the highest visibility index in the world, the Google hits indicate Natalee is way more popular than the Bush's war. People think it's all Bush's fault that Natalee is not found.

The race did take place and was well supported. Although it did rain during the race, it did not dampen the spirits of the supporters.

It was supported not just by the people in the MB/BHAM area - some came from Atlanta and other places.

We need to do what we can to keep Natalee's name and image out there. This will never be over until Natalee is returned to her rightful place.

Faith, Hope and Prayers for Natalee
