The Thank You Run was named after Helen Mok and started by local Realtors, Theresa and Ray Shay with Shay Realtors. Theresa Shay lost her mother Helen to ALS, which led the couple to start the annual fundraiser. The run helps to keep Helen’s spirit alive and to continue on her concept of helping others in need.
The Thank You Run supports two causes, Helen’s Closet & the 4S Ranch-Del Sur Community Foundation. Helen’s Closet provides comfort equipment to terminally ill ALS patients. The 4S Ranch-Del Sur Community Foundation supports local schools, the surrounding community and other priorities.
