The Stevie Patrick Legacy of Love award honors a co-survivor who embodies the spirit and qualities of Stevie Patrick, the inspiration for bringing Head for the Cure to North Texas in 2011. Stevie was known to her friends and family as an encourager and leader, going out of her way to serve others and give everyone she met a big hug. After her diagnosis in 2010 at the age of 28, Stevie never complained about feeling sick or being in pain. She always took the high road and walked through each day with great integrity and a big smile on her face. Her heart was always to reach out and help others. Stevie lost her battle in 2013 but her legacy remains and reminds us everyday that everyone needs to be loved. To learn more about Stevie, please click here.
The Legacy of Love award is easily defined by actions of integrity, encouragement, determination, and loving and serving others, especially those in need. The recipient of this award must have a heart the size of Texas and a strong desire to encourage and help others. This deserving person must be a leader each day and also have the courage to smile in the midst of adversity.
Nominations will be reviewed by the Crowder/Patrick family, and the winner will be announced at the 5th Annual North Texas Head for the Cure 5K race on May 7, 2016, at Oak Point Park in Plano, TX.
