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

Let's Get Back on the Fundraising Track!

I got busy this spring with school and sort of let things slide here for a while. While I took up the Insanity program and the school year wound down, I got away from running, away from posting here, and away from raising money. Yep. Away from raising money.

A big part of our mission here is to raise money for children's charities. Specifically, we raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Arkansas Children's Hospital, and Soaring Wings Christian Home & Ranch. This year, we set a goal to raise $2500 for each of these charities. We're almost halfway through the year, and we're nowhere near halfway to that goal.

So far this year, we've raised $1,052.98 for St. Jude, $800 for Arkansas Children's Hospital, and $825 for Soaring Wings. So we've still got a long way to go to reach our goal.
"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." ~ Galatians 6:9

You can help us get closer.

We're going to keep running, racing for all the reasons set forth in our mission statement: to raise money for these charities, to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ, to raise awareness of the dangers of teen substance abuse, and to honor the memory of our beautiful Amanda.

We'll keep running and donating our part to these charities, but we can't reach our goal without your help. So please, donate what you can to one or more of the three charities listed above. You can click the links in this post, or in the sidebar of this website. If you can give $100, $50, $25, or even $10, please do.

We've reached or exceeded the goals we set for these charities the past two years, and we hope to do likewise this year. But we need your help. So please give what you can today. And remember, we don't take a dime of your money. In fact, it never passes through our hands!

Thanks in advance and God Bless you too!
