Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,--Hebrews 12:1

Toad Suck Daze 10K/5K Next Saturday

Well I hadn't planned on running another race this month, but things just worked out that we're going to. Next weekend is the famed Toad Suck Daze celebration in Conway, Arkansas. One of the events is a 10K/5K road race that will be held April 30 and we'll be there.

Janice and Courtney will be participating in the 5K and I'll be running the 10K. Remember, this month we're focusing our fundraising efforts to help out Soaring Wings Ranch. SWR is a Christian group home for troubled youth located in Faulkner County (the same county that's home to the school where I teach.)

So far, we've raised $232 of our $1000 goal for the ranch. We could sure use your help to get us closer to that goal. Even if you can only give a little, every little bit helps. Through our Running with Amanda for Soaring Wings Ranch fundraising page you can give small or large amounts. We've had donations as little as $3.10, less than a meal at McDonald's these days.

"Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. " --2 Corinthians 9:7

If you can help at all, your gift--large or small--will be greatly appreciated and will be a tremendous help to the kids at SWR. Won't you consider donating one of the amounts listed below?

  • $24.80 to give $2/mile for each mile the three of us will run in next weekend's race.
  • $12.40 to give $2/mile for each of the 6.2 miles I'll run next Saturday, or for each of the miles Courtney & Janice will run.
  • $6.20 to give $2/mile for each mile Janice or Courtney will make.
  • $3.10 to give $1/mile for each mile Janice or Courtney will run.


Please give as generously as you can and know that your gift will help us Reach, Raise, and Remember. We're running to Reach people for Jesus, Raise money for charity, and Remember our beautiful Amanda Marie Allison.
