I call this, "The Marathon I Never Wanted to Run."
I am a full time mom of 3 little boys, part time employee, consistently tired, and sometimes I just want to be comfortable and do nothing. Running a marathon for the third time sounds flat out exhausting. But the fact is there are little girls being raped, night after night. And should I come face to face with one of these precious children, being too tired to do anything just won't cut it. Her value far exceeds my comfort level.
On October 18th, I am running a marathon and raising money to open the Love True Restoration Home for these little girls who are broken victims of sex slavery. If it were your precious child, I would run for her all the same.
Dear reader, it's time we do something uncomfortable.
Join me this October at the Atlantic City Marathon weekend and run whatever distance would be your challenge, while fundraising for a haven for little girls who have seen the worst of mankind right here in New Jersey.
Use that money you've been saving for a nonessential expense and support these humble efforts in pushing back the effects of modern day slavery in our fallen world.
Though we are far from the money we need, we can work together to get this home opened. Every single dollar counts. For every person who donates over $100, I will write your name on my arm on race day, and use my marathon miles to pray for you by name, thanking God for your generosity. If you choose to remain anonymous, I will pray for you all the same.
Whether you do all or none, it is my hope that you join me in pursuit of a world outside of ourselves. As Neale Donald Walsch put it so eloquently, "Life begins at the end of your comfort zone." Let's do something uncomfortable, and let's change the world.
