THE STORY:

I am very excited to announce that I will be teaming up with the Free Wheelchair Mission to raise funds as I train and ultimately run the LA Marathon in March. This charity is very inspiring to me. What better cause to run for than to bring people around the world the gift of mobility.

I was first introduced to this ministry when they visited my church years ago. I remember it quite well because of the funny wheelchair they had up on stage. They showed the congregation a video of people in third world countries being lifted off the dirt and into a wheelchair. The joy and excitement on their faces was priceless and brought tears to my eyes.

Free Wheelchair Mission has designed a cheap, hardy and easy to manufacture wheelchair that they then ship to third world countries, all through the support of donations. Each wheelchair costs $63.94 to manufacture and deliver and is given to those in need around the world. I encourage you to donate a wheelchair, team up with others to do so or help in anyway you feel called. Every little bit helps! All proceeds go towards this mission. Please join me and help bring others the gift of mobility.

My goal is to raise enough money for 15 wheelchairs, which is just under $1,000. I know we can do it because you guys kick butt! Just imagine, as a combined effort we can change 15 lives!

 

Isaiah 40:31

“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.”
