On March 6, 2018, McKenna Schummer lost a 20-month battle with Osteosarcoma at the young age of 11. On March 6, we have hosted a "Make a Difference Day the #McKennassquad Way" the past two years. In 2021, we are hosting the First Annual Make a Difference Day 5K in honor of McKenna.
She helped children find their courage, strength and beauty through the creation of the McKennassquad Beauty Bar at the Children's Hospital of Michigan in Detroit. Today, McKenna's Beauty Bar has been able to help many children going through tough times and has also been expanded in the form "Beauty Bar Boxes". These have been delivered to many hospitals within Michigan and also out of state.
McKenna's passion for make up lives on with this legacy and we need your help to "Make a Difference" by signing up, participating, posting, sharing, and helping #McKennassquad grow to reach more children in hospitals. We are going virtual for 2021 and have wonderful opportunities to run/walk a 5K or run/walk a "McKenna Mile". All proceeds go directly to the #McKennassquad Beauty Bar! Make a Difference today and join us March 6, 2021!
All who sign up will receive a "Swag Bag" with many items including a long sleeve sport tech t-shirt and finisher's medal! Dates for packet pickup will be emailed to you in February, or follow us on Facebook or Instagram!
