31 Miles: Thrive and Do Good.
Organized by: Lysianne Unruh
EVENT DATE May 09, 2015
What brings running a 50K (31 miles), a maternity ward on the African Continent, and high-tech American IVF babies together? Thriving.
Welcome. My name is Lysianne Unruh. I am the owner of Time to Thrive Coaching. On Saturday, May 9th, the day before Mother’s Day, I will run a 50K (or 31 miles), in honor of Sophia Grace and Noah James.
The Big Why:
I did not get to carry my babies past their first trimester. However, the presence of these two sweet souls, however brief in my life, helped shape and mold me into the woman I am today, and for that I am forever grateful.
It is from this foundation of love and appreciation, and the spirit of contribution, which I run these miles to raise money for two organizations which do exquisitely beautiful work to support mothers and babies.

I invite YOU to join me in supporting the amazing work of these two organizations.
I suggest a starting donation of $31.00 (or more if you wish) which represents the 31 miles I will be running during my happpy 50K run in the woods!
Thank you, so very much, for opening your heart and wallets in support of GOODNESS and HEALING and THRIVING.
I thank you and so do Sophia Grace and Noah James.
Please feel free to come to the finish line and cheer on the runners (some people are running 50 miles!) at the Ice Age 50 on Saturday, May 9th.
