THE STORY:

Hello Friends! Welcome and thank you for checking this out! I look forward to working together to make 12 5k’s feed 5000 kids!

I am running a 5k every month in 2014. That is twelve 5ks, which is 3.1 miles x 12 which equals 37.2 miles. So, I was thinking - I am already going to be working to better my life and health...how can I use that opportunity to make a difference in the life and health of others?
I am chairing the Stop Hunger Now event at Westover Hills UMC in January of 2015. That is 12 months from now. (See where I am going with this?) To give you an idea of the aggressive goal Westover Hills UMC has set, our 2014 meal packaging event is Saturday, January 18th. Our goal this year has been to raise enough money to package 25,000 meals which is approximately $6,250. If you know me, you know I will want to raise more, package more and help more people than ever. I have set a personal goal to raise the funding for 20% of the meals. So, my goal between January 2014 and January 2015 is to raise enough to package 5,000 meals, which totals $1,250.00. This is an aggressive number, but a worthy cause and I have confidence that we can make it happen! Then, this time next year, all of you can sign up to volunteer and help package the meals you have provided for undernourished children around the world! If you are not familiar with what Stop Hunger Now is all about, please, please check out their webpage at www.stophungernow.org.

To provide one nourishing meal to a hungry child only costs $.25. $25.00 feeds 100 kids. $1/mile donation, or $37.20, feeds 149 kids. So, bottom line - a little bit of money makes a tremendous difference in the lives of children around the world. It's bigger than that one meal. Parents send their kids to school just so they know they will get fed - which means some of these children would not be getting food OR an education if it weren't for the Stop Hunger Now programs around the world.
So, here are some options if you want to help:
Sponsor me per mile
$.50/mile ($18.60-74.4 meals)
$1.00/mile ($37.20-148.8)

Sponsor me per meal
50 meals = $12.50
100 meals = $25.00

I am asking you to encourage me along the way this year and most importantly, be a difference in the life of children. Help me make 12 5ks feed 5000 kids!
