celebrate life today like there’s no tomorrow

Organization of the Year

Last night, the Milan Chamber of Commerce honored Life Is Good No Matter What as organization of the year for our efforts with The Holly Run. We are incredibly humbled by this amazing award. The event was an incredibly fun time and one we will cherish as an organization forever.

This would have never been possible without the outpouring of support for the Holly Run in November which brought out 655 runners to raise enough money to grant 10 more escapes in 2015!

The leaders of The Holly Run are pictured below: Dawn Shover, Keely Grant, Danielle Shafoe and Zach Rospert. What started out as 4 individuals with little knowledge of ever organizing a 5k became a life changing events that will change so many individuals and their families forever. Dawn, Keely, Danielle and Zach thank you!

Please get ready for the second Milan 5k coming this November. It's going to be jam packed with hundreds of runners, entertainment and plenty of passion and fun to give adults with advanced cancer an escape from their diagnosis and battle.

“I have no words to fully describe the total fun and adventure it was to be spoiled and treated like VIPs…” Bill, Recipient


“It was nice to be pampered because usually I’m the one taking care of everybody else. For a few days I could relax and forget about getting to doctor’s appointments and paying medical bills. The experience regenerated me and allowed me to spend some precious time with my daughters.” Christine Tucker, Recipient
