THE STORY:

Team Love WIthout Boundaries makes our miles count for orphans in China - medically fragile children without families, without resources and without hope. We run for the babies - babies abandoned but not forgotten. The money we raise directly provides life saving surgeries and gives the forgotten children a chance.

On a personal note, China is a country that is close to my heart. My youngest sister and my three brothers were adopted from there, and Love Without Boundaries sponsored and performed my youngest brother's cleft lip surgery before we adopted him and brought him home. I am always looking for ways to be a help in the lives of Chinese orphans, and this unfortunately doesn't mean I can take unlimited trips to that side of the world. Running this race to raise money for LWB is another way to benefit the lives of children in China, monetarily and also to raise awareness about this organization and hopefully share this part of my heart with others to stir theirs.

The donations I raise for this event are going to sponsor sweet little Heath's multiple surgeries. Heath is a baby from a rural orphanage in Guizhou who was found to have both a heart defect and cleft lip. Surgeons decided to repair his cleft lip first, and then Heath underwent heart surgery in Shanghai. He is now recovering in our healing home in Fujian province, and we are hopeful that following his full recovery, he will be chosen for adoption. The third picture is of Heath (yes, the picture is squished and I can't figure out how to fix it.)
