My heart is breaking for the kids that are forced to navigate homeschooling and no activities. Does anyone have any ideas for me that may be a helpful way to bring hope to these kids right now?? I am so worried about them and their mental health.

This year I was excited to do something new...not a virtual run!!! LOL, I was going to have different colored beaded necklaces available to anyone who was willing to wear and show by their color how suicide had affected them. I am still wanting to somehow do this in a small way....Please comment below with the color heart that shows who has left you by suicide.
❤️-parent lost to suicide
💜-child
💛-sibling
💚-friend
💙-grandchild
🤍-any other family member, not listed above.

Thank you for participating. Let's stand together...recognizing that far too many of us have lost someone to a tragic, painful death. 💗

If you have a donation for the online auction for this year's Lope I am ready to accept them!!! Either just drop them at my house with a value estimate or message me on here and I will come and grab it! Thank you so much!!!

So, not sure exactly what this years Lilly's lope will look like...but I am forging ahead as if it will be the same as the previous years! I am asking for help though, as I did not get a chance to do the art contest for the t-shirt design like I did last year. Please share and hopefully we can have some great entries!!!

T-shirt art contest open to all of last years 6th through 8th graders.
1) must be on 8 1/2 x 11 paper
2) must be a positive depiction of HOPE
3) must be submitted no later than August 1st to my PO BOX 1585 Philomath Oregon or scanned and emailed to [email protected]
4) artwork can be just pencil or color

Winner will recieve a variety of fun gift cards and goodies!! The artwork will be displayed on the front of this years t-shirt and winner will get a free t-shirt and sweatshirt with their masterpiece on it!!! Open to kids in Philomath, Kings Valley, Alsea, and Corvallis schools!!! Please please encourage those artists you know to submit!!

I have been wanting to post something on here for awhile now...I am usually starting the planning for the 5k by now. I would have started to contact the local small businesses and companies for sponsorship, would have gotten the route approved through the city, started acquiring the running company and insurance needed. Instead I have been praying and thinking about how does this year need to look? My heart goes out to the local small businesses that are struggling to pay wages and keep their doors open. So, instead of asking them to support the Lope this year...I instead want to ask all of you to support them. The Lilly's Lope has had such generosity over the last 6 years that I am not going to be asking for financial donations this year. We will use some of the money that we have in excess to cover fees associated with the run. The run will still happen (as long as permitted) and if people and businesses would like to donate that would be fine. Truly we have been blessed and I would love to just thank all the businesses that have helped in the past...please join me and support them now. They have financially supported this cause for years!
Here are the businesses that have been faithful to support us over the last 6 years (in no particular order :)
True Value
Vinwoods
Albins Plumbing
Dairy Queen
Figaros Pizza
Alyrica
Miller Timber
Hendrix Heating
Two Towns Cider
Precision Approach Engineering
JD McGee Engineering
Xtreme Grafx
M&W Electric
ShaneCo Timber
Outwest Farm and Ranch
West Coast Machine
Arauco
R3 Engraving
MidValley Gravel
Hanson Insurance
Diamond Clean
Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center
* I am soooo sorry if I have missed anyone!!!

Thank you all for incredible love and support over the years...we will all get through this, together!!!

PLEASE SHARE SO THESE BUSINESSES GET SOME LOVE!!!!

Rainbows on sunny days... — Lilly's Lope

Morning thoughts...

I picked this title because it has such meaning for me. Since my niece has passed I see things I never saw before. The sky is more brilliant in the evenings, the sunrises have more shades of pinks and oranges than ever before. And I have seen more rainbows on sunny days than I can count. I belie

Lilly's Lope

This year will be the 5th annual Lilly's Lope. Many, if not all, of you know my story. You know my niece's story. You know that at the age of 14, a freshman in High School, she took her life. Each year since her death I have put on a fundraising run and silent auction in Philomath. We raise close to $9000.00 a year that cover costs of counseling needs for kids in Philomath and Corvallis...and each year I hope to branch out and add more of our Willamette Valley schools. In the last 4 years we have used a piece of her artwork to be on the front of the shirts. It has been a wonderful tribute to her, as she loved art, and has been so awesome to see. This year is different. I had every great intention of putting together an art contest for the middle school kids and then their artwork (the winner) would get their picture on the front of the shirt. For some reasons that I don't need to get into...it didn't happen. (My hope is that it will next year!) Lilly taught an art class at the middle school, and I just knew she would be tickled to get kids excited for art!!! This year however, the artwork we will get to use is a piece that actually was created because of the run. The Lilly's Lope funds help to support 'Inspired day' at the Philomath Schools, and this years' speaker was an artist! He painted an amazing piece, that actually has the word 'HOPE' right in it! I know, God is just incredible!!! Eric Samuel Timm has allowed us to use his art this year. It is a wonderful blessing, as he is very talented, and his story is pretty incredible too. But I struggled. I struggle with change. I worry. I worry how people will feel with the changes. But then God laid a story on my heart the other night. He showed me that Lilly is like an acorn. Without her or her story, there would be no reason for a run. Without the friends, family, and community there would be nothing to support the run... we are the roots, you see. But the acorn can't stay an acorn. It had a different purpose. It was meant to be an oak tree. It was meant to provide shelter for those in need. It is strength. It is protection. So like the acorn, the run will have some changes this year. It has to. It is growing into a much larger 'tree' than before. But I will never forget the acorn that started the whole thing, and I will forever be indebted to the 'roots' that my family, friends and community have become. I love you all.

I had a fabulous day today teaching QPR to staff for the Corvallis school district. This is a course geared to help adults and youth recognize signs of suicidal thoughts and threats. It really gives my life such purpose to be a part of helping stop an epidemic that has hit our children and our adults. QPR focuses on giving HOPE to others, much like our run!!! If anyone is interested in attending a QPR class, message below! I’ll see what I can do to bring one or several to our community . #bethehope #bethechange

Losing a friend or family member to suicide is something so devastating it is almost indescribable. It causes you to question so many things...there is overwhelming guilt at ‘what did I miss?’ There is grief that is unlike grief from ‘natural’ death. My prayer, my purpose for this run, is that every youth and adult can recognize their worth and that tomorrow is a new day, a fresh start, but it is only there if you hold on!!! So, in memory of my lovely niece, who chose to not hold on...I beg you to love one another and stay strong. Today’s problems can be tomorrow’s memories. Come join us this year www.lillyslope.com

Well, it is that time again! I am beginning the planning process for the 5th annual Lilly’s Lope for Hope. It is hard to believe that it has been so long...she would be 19 now. Please join me and help kids have hope. I just have such a deep desire to never see or hear of a young person giving up on life. There have been so many beautiful moments that my niece has missed out on. One mistake. One moment. Join me October 13th. And if you can donate something for the silent auction please message me. Anything helps.

What time does the 5k begin?
Where can I find the race information
"There is Always Hope." This oil painting will be at the auction of this year's event. I was inspired by Lily's love of horses, the idea of strength in numbers, and the eternal hope of a sunrise that God gifts to us daily. See you all at the run!
Time to register...and thank you all for the incredible amount of love and support that my family has gotten over the years and continues to get. Without all of you none of this could have happened.
Huge thank you to Agwest supply for there donation for this years Lope
