A Marathon for People People
by Anna Cleary
It's true I am NOT an athlete ... but a half marathon for people -people has my full attention. You mean , I can literally run, walk, or crawl and it will help others by providing food, clothing, and furniture for those whom have nothing. I can be apart of something bigger than my own life and offer something greater and far reaching beyond my own needs ? You may say , " I give to charity! I shop at thrift stores! " Ok, crazy, thats fine ,but what I'm offering you is this. I will be your hands and feet as I walk and mybe crawl my second half marathon ,on October 9th ,for Cottonwood Runners to raise FUNDS for GRATEFUL HEARTS a place NEAR and DEAR to MINE. I will be hitting the road with my mother and son!!! I can only say this... I NEED YOU . I need your support to help the homeless and the hurting. I have seen first hand of those that have nothing ...no food, no clothing, no hope. THis is where we come in! WE send supplies that will SAVE CHILDREN"S LiVES!!! We have what they need just need the means to get it there! We feed 5,000 people a month and the needs are increasing rapidly. We need your support especially during the holidays, we need your hands, your heart and today I am asking for you to donate to my crowdrise and I promise you ,it will go immediately into the life of someone who needed YOU . We (both you and I) can do this together . I promise to do the leg work that is needed .

A Marathon For People People
I am Not an athlete but have been running this race of loving and caring for "people" since I was little. I believe it all started when I attented VBS with my mother and than we hit the VBS circuit for my grandma's church and once I knew I could share what I learned , I did. I think I was around 10 when my Grandma Chenta gave me a box of plaster molds of praying hands and flowers that said," Jesus Your Word Lives In Me". I brought them home and tranformed my backyard into VBS . It was just natural my brothers and cousins all knew what to do and we invited our friends for a whole week and then capped it off with an evening presentation for their parents ! I was bold was I was little and I must be bold again. On October 9th a miracle will take place when I join my mother and son to complete a half marathon for Cottonwood Runners to raise funds for Grateful Hearts. During this time each mile we will be serving an abused mother whom had to flee from her violent surroundings with her children, we will be working hard to give a young adult with special needs the attention and training to get hired to compete for paying jobs, we help those children and babies that are dying in Nicaragua , we the people with every step will be providing food for the homeless and the hurting, we the people will be preparing to serve families thousands and thousands of families during the holidays, we will be sweating to provide a veteran and their families meals . I am not kidding when I tell you all these people could be served simultaneously and daily. We never turn anyone away. We are a small staff but you can come right along side me and support our storehouse where " We the People People" of Grateful Hearts are always running...no literally we run to and for the needs of the homeless and the hurting. I look forward to your support and words of encourgement.
