Our mailman here at the SLmag office is 'that' mailman. You know, the friendly, good-natured guy that's always got a smile on his face. He's one of those people that brightens your day, no matter how big the bill is he is slipping into your hands.

We recently found out that Loren, our mailman, has a 10-year-old daughter suffering from a brain tumor. She was diagnosed in May and has been undergoing treatments since then. His daughter, Shaelie, is set to begin chemotherapy soon.

Shaelie happens to be one of the beneficiaries of this years annual 'Heroes for Families' 5K run and 2 mile walk. The race, held in Plain City on Saturday, October 2, supports families with children battling cancer and other diseases. Entry fee is only $15 and includes a t-shirt w/ pre-registration (until 9/21).

Join some of the SLmaggers for a good cause and a great excuse to get out.

Call Scott at 801-698-9639 or visit heroesforfamilies.org for registration and more information.
