“Dear Cris and Lou, I thank you for not just what your hard work and passion brought to me this Race season but, more importantly, what you gave to the tens of thousands who fundraised and united on Eakins Oval for the Race and the Dash. You gave them hope and encouragement. You assured them if breast cancer looms ahead, they have a friend walking right by their side. You gave adults comfort knowing their children have that same steadfast support… and gave children confidence they have the power to make a difference. Whomever that "Gertie" is in their lives… whatever that cherished experience they Race to preserve… you empowered them to fulfill their personal missions and save lives.”

“We are so happy to share our songs with you. Our songs are meant for children between the ages of 1 and 7 and their parents. We write songs about those things we have to deal with every day - often those things that can be a source of conflict between parent and child or amongst children. In fact, the songs are all about different virtues parents wish for their child to obtain. For example, we have songs about sharing, tidying up one’s toys, brushing one’s teeth, potty training, good manners, like saying “hello, goodbye and thank you, eating healthy food, going to sleep and waking up. Why don’t you listen to our medley located in the sailboat above this text? You can also visit our shop to either download our songs, or order the hard copy CD. We would love to see you at one of our shows, so please sign up for our e-newsletters - to see when we are planning to come and perform near you!”
