About the Cause

Sally was the daughter of the Deans family whose complex medical conditions were not compatible with this life, and she passed away on April 4th, 2017 at 35 weeks gestation. Help the Deans family honor her by raising funds for children and families in our community who live with conditions that impact  play, work, family routines, basic living skills, community mobility and everyday life.

Welcome Home Angel (WHA) is a local non-profit 501(c)3 organization that brings joy and relief to children with chronic and physically debilitating illness or injury, ages 4 through 18, who live in Wilmington, NC and surrounding areas. WHA provides a makeover of the child’s bedroom creating a healthy and cheerful environment in which to live and recover. Welcome Home Angel exists to provide relief to the lives of these children and their families through aesthetic changes in bedrooms, structural modifications in other areas of the home, and emotional support to children and caregivers. These makeovers can be minor (primarily aesthetic) costing up to $7,500 or major (structural as well as aesthetic) costing up to $20,000. The 1st Annual Sally’s Run raised $9000 to donate to Welcome Home Angel!
