2023  4th Annual La vita è Bella 5K

 Today over 300 people came together for a cause and helped support MA children and animals in need!

There are no words to describe the beautiful day we enjoyed on Sunday with everyone, celebrating the 4Th Annual La vita è Bella 5K. This was our largest 5K event with over 300 participants and the day was perfect.

Beginning our morning at 7:30 and closing the house at 10:00 pm, Tommy and Michelle O’Toole hosted our event at O’Toole’s Pub in Whitman. Their awesome staff busted their butts to pull off an incredible day. We are blessed and appreciative for all they have done not only for our family but in support of The Nicole Dondero Memorial Fund. With an unexpected raffle, silent auction, and 50/50 event, we began the day with coffee & donuts, hot dogs, chips, and drinks (provided by O’Toole’s) then enjoying O’Toole’s delicious beverages, pizzas, and apps. (You simply couldn’t resist)

We thank O’Toole’s gracious patrons who bought raffle tickets, donated raffle items, silent auction items and monetary donations throughout the weekend. We thank all our volunteers, especially the WH track team for their help during the 5k, Whitman PD, our friends, family, and sponsors. We appreciate and thank everyone who came out to participate in and support The Nicole Dondero Memorial Fund. You made this incredible day possible raising funds to elevate MA children and animals in need.

A very special thank you to Lori Shisler, my sister-in-law, who delivered an incredible 5K event celebrating the life of Nicole from start to finish, you are my partner in crime, and I couldn’t do these events without you by my side. Special thanks to Tommy and Michelle O’Toole for working their magic and making this our largest and most successful 5K event yet. A special thank you to my husband and son, Mike, and Zack, for not only supporting me but for putting up with all my craziness, I love you. Finally, the most important thank you goes to Nicole, for being my beautiful daughter inside and out. You give me the strength to face each new day while continuing your legacy and philanthropic ways.
