So who is Lou Bird?
Lou Bird stems from Larkin’s nickname. Her siblings affectionately call her, ‘Lou,’ and she was born two weeks early, deeming her the family’s early bird. Our little Lou is also one tough little bird. She has enough hospital bracelets to make a chain, but that doesn't phase her one bit. She draws people in with her infectious smile and polite mannerisms. She is simply a joy and loves everyone. Lou Bird is our inspiration for starting McHenry County's first epilepsy 5k and ultimately the Lou Bird Foundation.
