Caleb’s Run Updated Information

Caleb's Dad ~ 10th November 2010

To All,

This is the latest information about the events for Caleb’s run coming up this Saturday 11-13-2010.

The first thing is that I talked with Michael Tagert and he will be at the run!!!  Michael is the young man that carried Caleb up the trail and in my son Tim Brown’s (Caleb’s Dad) own words, “Saved Caleb’s Life Twice”.

Also we are planning to have a video conference with Tim and Tiffany so they can address everyone
themselves direct from Atlanta, Georgia where they will be beginning the long road of rehabilitation with Caleb.

I talked with Bobbie Ford who is coordinating this event and she told me that some of the items being donated for the silent auction include:

  • A tour jacket from George Strait – given by himself
  • A t-shirt, 8×10 autographed photo and a concert CD from George Jones
  • Movie tickets from The Roxy
  • Other items donated from John Anderson, Ronnie McDowell, and possibly Aaron Tippin

This is very heartwarming to know these people, and especially Bobbie and Jeff Ford, are being so supportive!

There will be a 5K run that now has over 300 people signed up and for those of us that won’t be
running; a “TIRED OLD BONES” concert will be performed by Todd and Emily Jacobs (Tim and Tiffany’s close friends and Worship leaders from Lighthouse Christian Fellowship in Antioch).

Nashville’s News Channel 5 will also have a crew there for a follow-up on events for Caleb. Reporter Scott Arnold and News Channel 5 have been wonderful through this trying time and the family wants to acknowledge their gracious reporting.

Thursday the 11th and Friday the 12th from 6:30 – 8:00 ~ we will be at the Alexandria Church of Christ. Those of you who live in the area may come and pay for registration and pick up your shirt.

    Hi Tim & Tiffany,
    I have been with you guys in prayer since your journey began in Chattanooga, Our Lord has brought Baby Caleb a long way since his accident, and I thank him from the bottom of my heart. I can’t image the tears you all have shed over your baby, for I know how many I have for that precious Little Baby, and his Dad and Mom. I know the Lord has his Strong and Loving arms around Caleb and he will be back to playing with his brothers and his dad of the floor again. You know thru all this I Pray that out in this world that all the people who look at fb and read this and see what the Lord has done will turn to him, because he does answer our prayers and he does keep us close to him, and all we have to do is JUST ASK. I have seen that with Baby Caleb, and our PRAYERS have brought Caleb a long way and our PRAYERS will continue to make Caleb get better. In Your Loving and Precious Name Lord Amen
    We Love You Caleb
