WANT TO HELP?
Kendall (Billis) Pipkin was diagnosed several months ago with stage 3 colon cancer. He immediately underwent surgery to remove a large mass and several inches of his colon. He was scheduled for chemo therapy there after, and is now at the half-way mark for this treatment.
Billis continued to work up until a few weeks ago when the treatment and medications started taking a toll on his body. Some family members and friends got together. We realized the huge need for assistance in helping him pay his bills for a family of 6 so he wouldn't stress, also to be able to afford travel expenses for treatment, not to mention funds for immune boosting supplements that insurance does not cover.
We are holding a 5K run on September 10th, 2016. Going from the south reservoir in Colorado City, and ending at Maxwell Park in Hildale. There we will have food, entertainment, and a raffle basket fundraiser.
You can help by being a sponsor at any amount. We have ordered 300+ t-shirts and are having our highest sponsors printed on the back for a $250 value sponsorship (cash and raffle basket value). Sponsorship of $100 value will be on our banner at the park as well as mention on our stages. We need this sponsorship donation by August 31st with a .pdf file of your logo for the t-shirts.
Also we are looking for volunteers to help out with set up, work the event, and take down/clean up.
Please contact us with your interest of support by August 31, 2016, and again Thank you for helping us make this event a success!

With this New Year, there is a bright future for our communities. The 4th of July in 2015 was so
amazing because you made it that way. It wasn’t successful because of any single person, it was everyone!!
We wanted to get an early start this year so we can be well prepared. My goal is to make this invitation
to everyone, with no exclusions. Our only request would be consideration of others in your modesty.
Bring your kindness and friendship and let’s make this another memorable day of FREEDOM in this community.
We have set up a committee to help organize this event. We want to promote a parade. We are also
setting up an online petition to invite the Utah and Arizona Governor’s to come be guest speakers with
the hope they will accept the invitation. The event this year will be Saturday July 2nd. This would allow
them to return home for the 4th in their own community’s.
The breakfast will be free but the afternoon concessions will need to be purchased, with hopes of
the vendors pricing to be reasonable. More information will be posted in the time line as it becomes available.
We are looking forward to this year’s gathering, everyone looking after each other as friends. Let’s
make this community great.
sincerely, The planning committee.
