The Time Has Come……6th Annual Getty Owl Run/Walk is Here!

From Kate:


I am so happy to announce our 6th Annual Getty Owl Run/Walk is coming at you, Sunday, February 26, 2017!

More details to come, but for now, mark your calendar for our 6th Annual. We are so excited and are happily knee deep in all things planning. Over the past five years of our event you have helped us raise over $150,000 to help support families affected by Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Your dedication and support has helped Getty Owl Foundation send money into the direct hands of scientists and doctors on the front line of beating this disease. Thank you for your support!

We are and will always be a 100% volunteer non-profit. We depend on support from our local and national community and we are just so thankful for your support for these almost 7 years of our existence.

We have so much to be thankful for. Getty is now a 6 and a half. A first grader who enjoys books, reading books, and listening to people read books. 🙂 Our little bookworm continues to grow in her sassiness and relish in her friendships with her friends at school. We are so very proud of her and all of her accomplishments so far.

So stay tuned, more details to come, but for now perhaps you and your friends and family can consider joining us again for our 6th Annual Getty Owl Run/Walk.

Thank you all for taking the time to enter your child. Over 100 entires were collected. We then had the hard task of randomly choosing 12 recipients for the giveaway. After a little deliberation we decided that 12 was simply not enough, so we upped it to 20! We hope you enjoy your swings. Now go and create new memories and swing to your heart’s content. 🙂

Thank you Dutch Bros.!

From Kate:


We are so proud and humbled to announce that the Bucks for Kids fundraiser has produced an incredible total. We would like to thank the Grubbs Family, their Dutch Bros. staff and family, and everyone that stopped by to purchase a drink to help support Getty Owl Foundation.

Together you raised $5,434


We are so thankful for all of the support. We are and will always be a 100% volunteer non-profit. Funds raised give us the ability to continue to support and advocate for families affected by SMA. We cannot do the work we do without the support of many. Thank you so very much for giving this opportunity to us. We know how special this is.
