In 2002, the Rice family and friends helped host the very first Angel Run to honor their son, David, who lived at Holy Angels for sixteen years until he passed away in 2001.
“The Angel Run has not only been a special way to remember our son but is a way to pay back Holy Angels for the love and care he received,” says Barbara Rice, David’s mother.
