Karing Fair 2014

Saturday, August 16th, was our 6th Annual Kari's Heart Foundation Karing Fair.  The Karing Fair is the annual summer event for Kari's Heart Foundation to raise money and awareness.  Kari's Heart Foundation have been helping families with sick kids in the hospital since 2008.  They provide a wonderful service and help families with everything from toiletry bags to gas cards to hotel stays to rent to emotional support.  If you are unfamiliar with the foundation and sweet, little Kari Schoondyke's story, please follow the link above to learn more.  Now, here's a look at the fair!

The day started off with the Heartbreak Ridge 5k run - the hardest 5k you will ever run!!  To see the rest of the Heartbreak Ridge 5k please follow this link - J. Commons Photography - Heartbreak Ridge 5k.

The overall winner with a time of less than 21 minutes (Sorry, I can't recall the actual 20:??)!

Great job, Schoondykes!

After the 5k-ers took off it was time for the cycling challenge to begin.  To see all of the photos from the cycling challenge follow this link - J. Commons Photography Heartbreak Cycling Challenge.

This 12-year old won the other bike and he was so excited.  When Randall asked him how he felt he said, "Tired!"

The kids' events kicked off at 10:00 am with face and nail painting, balloon animals, water park fun, and more!  To see all of the photos from the kids' events please follow this link - J. Commons Photography Kids' Events.

This kid!  He had moves like Jagger or maybe this is the start of "Thriller!"  Either way, he was wicked adorable!

An inflatable water slide?  Yes, please!

This year we were treated to a little live music from past Tri-Cities Got Talent contestants, Mitchell Snapp and winner Luke Broyles, and KHF's own, The Johnson City Hit Men! To see all the live music photos please follow this link - J. Commons Photography Karing Fair 2014 Live Music.

And none of this would be possible without the wonderful volunteers! To see all the photos of the volunteers and other scenes from around the fair please follow this link - J. Commons Photography Karing Fair 2014 Volunteers and Scenes.
