About Shephard’s Flock and Run for Shep
On August 23, 2013 Matt and Brady Hall’s lives were changed forever. That was the day they found out their son Shephard had cancer. After spending countless hours at USA Children’s and Women’s hospital in Mobile, they met many other families who were fighting the same battle. Matt and Brady became passionate about helping other local families who have a child living with pediatric cancer and decided to start their own non-profit in order to do so. Run for Shep is currently their largest fundraiser and it allows them to assist families with non-medical expenses such as food, gas, groceries, and much more.
Shephard’s Flock is an approved 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Spanish Fort, AL
