BENEFITING: Pure Gift From God
EVENT DATE: Oct 16, 2016
None of us chose where or when we would enter the world. Our beginning circumstances are completely out of our control.
But now I can be intentional about what I do with my time, energy, talents, and wealth. I am running the Columbus Nationwide Childrens Marathon to raise funds for Pure Gift of God. The passion and mission of this organization excites me and I hope you will contribute because your gifts will go out in grant money to couples who want to adopt.
Pure Gift of God exists to provide financial and emotional support to couples who know they have space in their hearts for a child who is looking for a family to call "MINE!" Often when we think about things like this, the financial burden, legal work, and fear of the unknown keep us from stepping out. Each of the 26.2 miles I run will contain many unknowns and I will need lots of help and encouragement to reach the finish line. Will you support me by giving to this cause that literally will make an eternal difference in someones life? We all long to be "picked" by someone...chosen out of all the others. This is the "prayer of the children" who are waiting in faith...faith that someone will choose THEM.
Let's be a part of the answer to their prayers and reward their faith by helping send someone their way.
Website has great promotional videos and links. A personal friend of mine is applying for a grant right now. JoElla and I hope our turn is next :)
NOTE: you can donate through the link on PGOG website and avoid the small fee from Crowdrise.com. Please email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org if you donate any other way than through my website here so that I can add it to the total on this webpage to reflect our progress.
