1st Annual Carter Classic Softball Tournament

Tis the season the Shields family fundraisers. With the success of our golf tournament we are confident we'd like to continue to raise awareness about Hydrocephalus. Our next event is just a few weeks away, we are hosting a softball tournament to help raise funds for Hydro Research. We are so blessed to be in our area with wonderful family, friends and a great community that has always supported us through our tough times. We also are blessed with such a gifted group of Neurosurgeons and Researchers that have dedicated their lives to Hydrocephalus research and I am confident they will make a difference in Carter's life and thousands of others suffering with this condition. So, we are donating half of the Softball funds to the Dr Marion Walker's Research Fund and the other half will go to the Hydrocephalus Association's Annual WALK on Sept 26th.

First Annual Carter Shields Open

Saturday, our family learned just how important our friends, family and community are to us. We are so blessed to live in such a wonderfully supportive group of people who love us and who truly care about our family. Our golf event was more then we could have expected. People came from far and near, it was remarkable to see people step up and be so generous. Our family is truly changed by the amount of love we feel and the amount of support we've been given. Thank you to all who planned, participated and donated to our family. We are forever in debt to the wonderful people who came out this weekend. Thank you!
