On May 20th 2009, Griffin Billings was diagnosed with Leukemia. We and our community of friends have decided to put a 5K together to honor Griffin. We hope anyone, that has interest, will join us on July 18th 2009 to celebrate and support Griffin.

Thank you for visiting.

Griffin Day 5k: The T-shirt

Hello! This is the first post on this site. Thank you for visiting and please tell everyone you know, that might be interested, about this site.

Here is the official design for the Griffin Day 5k t-shirt. The first picture shows the art and the second shows the design position on the shirt. Griffin's favorite color is purple, so I had to go with a purple shirt. I tried to do a design that showed cancer cells intermingled with white blood cell (yellow for design sake) that transition into an area with no cancer cells. My hope is that this shirt would be attractive, and be Male and Female friendly. Any comments about the t-shirt would be greatly appreciated.

We are very excited about this shirt and anticipate a great day of fun next month. Information on how to pre-order shirts and pre-register for the 5k will come soon.
