Before Eric and Courtney Waldrop’s sextuplets were born, the town of Albertville, Alabama, where the family resides, hosted a 5K fundraiser that was also a gender reveal to raise money for the family to help offset the costs of bringing their big bundles of joy into the world (via The Gadsden Times).
“We’ve been very, very, blessed with a lot of love and support,” Courtney shared with Fox 61 News about all the help and support they’ve received. “We wouldn’t be here right now without all the love, support, and prayers.” After the sextuplets were born, the Waldrops decided as a thank you, they would, in turn, host a fun run of their own to raise money for their beloved town.
“It was really important to do this event because the town and community has been so gracious to us and so supportive of us and we’ve just have felt every prayer,” Courtney also told WHNT 19 News during the event. The station also spoke to attendees of the event, and Katie Ball, a friend of the Waldrop family, shared, “This family means a lot to me. We have kids the same age. So I’ve been willing to do any and everything that this family needs.” The Waldrops donated all the proceeds to the Pregnancy Crisis Center and Albertville City Schools.
