On May 22, 2011 a devistating tornado hit the town of Joplin Missouri. The destruction and aftermath of this storm played out in the news for weeks after and the residents are still rebuilding thier homes, businesses and lives. Amoung the souls called home that day were Lorie and Glenn Holland, having just returned from a week at Walt Disney World in Florida in celebration of their 15th wedding anniversary.

Glenn and Lorie Holland


Just two months before, Lorie had contacted me and registered to become a member of the WDW Radio Running Team:

“Valerie,

I’d love to be a part of the team. I’m registered for the Disney Half in January 2012. Looking forward to sharing the training woes online and to meet everyone in January.

Thanks, Lorie Holland

aka Minnie Lor on all the various forums”

Lorie chose to join our team and race with friends to benefit “The Dream Team Project” which raises funds The Dream Team Project through Make A Wish, specifically to send seriously ill children and their families to Walt Disney World. It was her wish to bring magic to the lives of children who needed it most. Through the work of wish-granting organizations, The Dream Team Project is helping a child and their family now, giving them time away from the grim reality of hospitals and doctors, and a chance to smile and feel better, even if only for a little while. The happy memories the family creates, however, will last a lifetime.

As a trubute to Lorie and her husband Glenn, we are selling these WDW Radio silicone bracelets for a minimum donation of $1.00 per bracelet (higher donations accepted and appreciated). All proceeds from the braclets will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America through the Dream Team Project in Memory of Lorie and Glenn Holland.

Bracelet 1


Bracelets can be purchased from me during during the Wine & Dine race weekend activities for a minimum donation of $1.00 per bracelet, (higher donations are also appreciated and encouraged). Any remaining bracelets will be available for purchase directly from me from now through November 23, 2011.

Please remember that 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these bracelets go to Make-A-Wish Foundation of America in Memory of Lorie and Glenn Holland.

Help us reach out and make one of the last acts of kindness Lorie had done become a reality.

Thank you.

  1. What a great way to keep their spirit alive! I’ve sent you an email about making a donation and getting a bracelet. ONE DAY I will do a Disney race with the team…maybe 2013!
