Team Fundraiser

Team Olivia


Raised of $8,000


Welcome to Team Olivia 2020!

Hello Everyone!  I hope this message finds you all home, healthy & together with family.  Normally we send this note out to all of Olivia’s fans around her birthday at the end of March.  However with everything going on and so many un-knowns in the world we held off until plans got a bit more firmed up with the annual Running for Hope 5k.  This year’s Team Olivia announcement also just so happens to coincide with Olivia’s one year anniversary from her tragic event on May 2, 2019 that ultimately led to her second transplant on Christmas Eve of 2019.  We had a very special evening this weekend to continue our support of the Ronald McDonald House Charity that has done so much for us during some of our hardest and most challenging moments as a family.  The storybook video that was made to help raise awareness of this amazing charity is attached to the YouTube link here.

There are several exciting announcements about the walk this year.  First, We are still participating in the walk and I hope you do too!  In 4 WEEKS on Sunday June 7th our Family will be walking around the streets of our neighborhood proudly wearing our Team Olivia gear to continue to fundraise for this organization.  We may be social distancing ourselves but we will do it in style!  Please wear your favorite Team Olivia shirt from past races and post your pictures #RunningforHopegoesvirtual. 

Second, Olivia made the decision when we came home from the hospital in January that we were going to make a new logo this year.  Something that could represent her journey thru life with what is now her 3rd heart.  It is surreal to even type that into an e-mail.  Olivia herself chose the design of the new logo and we will be printing and selling the new shirts and other apparel to raise funds for the race.   We have to reach our $8,000 goal this year somehow since we are going virtual!  If you would like one, and I know you ALL DO the suggested donations are:


$15 – Team Olivia Hat

$20 – Team Olivia Shirt

$30 – Team Olivia Shirt/Hat combo

$50 – Team Olivia Shirt + Signed Thank you from Olivia <3

Any donation of $20 or more will automatically enroll yourself into the raffle for the hand painted Team Olivia 2020 Canvas by Olivia.  Shirts will be delivered to everyone in June.

Thank you all so much for your continued support, love and encouragement.  Family is everything to us, and you are all part of Olivia’s family in some way, shape, or form.  Our heartfelt love to all of you and remember…
