ABOUT

​HISTORY

Only You is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization started by Mike and Kelly Fedak to honor the memory of their son Mikey.  Mikey had special needs and passed away unexpectedly in April 2013 at the age of 10.  He was a truly special child, who in his brief time here, worked very hard to overcome his many challenges, but also really enjoyed life.  He was always very happy and had a positive effect on everyone he met.  He brought love and joy to his family, his friends and classmates and his many therapists every day.

Inspired by their strong desire to have the positive effect that Mikey had on people's lives continue, and very much aware of the challenges (including financial ones) faced by a family raising a child with special needs, Mike and Kelly decided to start Only You to provide assistance to these children and their families.  They had often talked about trying to start a program like this to help those families meet those challenges and provide other support and now hope to take all of the energy that they gave to Mikey and focus it on fulfilling this vision.

Our 7th ANNUAL 5K Run/Walk, 1-Mile Walk and 1-Mile Kids’ Run was our BEST YET!
An ENORMOUS THANK YOU to our sponsors who provided financial and other support and EVERYBODY else who made this such a successful event!!

 

We had some of the fastest runners ever this year AND we had more kids (and adults) with special needs participate than ever before!  Watching them cross the finish line and then proudly wearing their medals for the rest of the morning was a nice reminder for everybody of the reason we do this! We were able to raise money to support our mission and at the same time work toward achieving one of our primary objectives, which is to encourage and facilitate the inclusion of people with special needs. MyTeamTriumph had a huge group of Captains -- each with their own team of Angels, Mimi Washington of Rolling Thunder had a great team of kids from her adaptive running program, and we had lots of “Only You” kids running with a buddy!

  

We had over 30 Corporate Sponsors, nearly 50 Family Sponsors, and lots of awesome people who donated, volunteered, or just showed up to cheer everyone on!

  • The countless friends and family and others (they know who they are and so do we) who volunteered their time in the week before and especially the day of the Event (many beginning before sunrise and some traveling quite a distance to be here). Without each and every one of them this Event would not have been possible….

 

We are so thrilled to have had another successful Event and immensely grateful to everybody who helped make it happen. Each year seems to be better than the one before, and people who have been with us every year say afterward that it was the best one ever!  We raised more money than we had even hoped, and now we are looking forward to putting it all to good use in the coming year. We've got lots of exciting things in the works so stay tuned!

And finally, of course, to EVERYBODY who came out! The collective energy of the amazing crowd that shows up every year is really what makes this day so special and what inspires us to do it all over again next year!
