Why My Mom Loved the Wheeler Mission Drumstick Dash!

My mom, Dianne Bulleri, LOVED feeding people!  EVERYONE was welcomed to her overly thematic decorated home. No matter if you just came from your own table she always fed everyone and anyone who walked through her door. And I suppose that is why she loved the opportunity to be apart of the Drumstick Dash and to donate money to the Wheeler Mission.  She LOVED coming down to Indianapolis and walking every Thanksgiving morning in the Drumstick Dash.  She always had the latest Turkey hats for everyone to wear and would proudly display the years' shirt.  She would wear that shirt throughout the year with pride and comment on how much she loved the different colors. As we piled as many people as we could into cars my mom could not wait to see all the people in costumes, the large pile of bananas, and cheering on me, my students (Avery & Nick), and her grandchildren as they crossed the finish line. 

This year is different in so many ways.  This year feels like my mom has been gone for years and this year I need her the most. Not a day goes by I don't miss her. Since my mom has passed over 10,000 meals have been served in her memory. I would like to continue to extend the opportunity again this year to raise money for this amazing local charity and in my mom's memory and spirit! There is no amount too small or too large. Every $2.25 you spend is one meal that will be served in the memory of my mom. Thanks for your support of me and the Wheeler Mission. And continuing to remember my mom.

Be Safe.  Be Well. And Happy Thanksgiving!
