Hi Everyone! I am currently training for the Long Beach Marathon-you got that right, 26.2 miles!!! Why you ask? Well none other than to raise money for Grateful Hearts (grateful hearts.org). Grateful Hearts is a resource center that provides food, clothing, furniture, appliances, and household necessities to the jobless, working poor, disabled, elderly and families in crisis. I will join over a hundred runners from my church Cottonwood, in order to raise money and awareness for Grateful Hearts. More importantly I wish to glorify God through this run. I plan to show fellow runners, fans and the LB community what a great God I serve. He is mighty! And though I am weak, my God is strong and I know I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me Philippians 4:13, even 26.2 miles!!!! If Christ can carry a heavy cross to Calvary, I think the least I can do is run 26.2 miles to show the world what a caring God I serve. He cares so much for the hurting and asks us to be his hands and feet to make that happen.
Please join me in this cause by donating financially and/or prayerfully to Grateful Hearts. My goal is to raise $300 by race day, October 9, 2016. Just click on my account and donate any amount.
