Thanks for visiting my page. As some of you may already know, I will be running my first ever marathon this year as a participant in the Twin Cities Medtronic race on October 4th. As excited as I am to cross this off my bucket list, I am even more excited to be able to raise funds for NPH, an organization that has orphanages for kids across Latin America.
I have been a volunteer for NPH in the past, and its cause is one that is close to my heart. Three years ago, I was blessed with the opportunity to travel to Costa Rica with fellow classmates to enhance our study of biology and Spanish. During the trip, we arranged a visit to a local school. The school building consisted of a one-room makeshift classroom. The teachers graciously accepted our donation of school supplies while the young students with bright eyes prepared to perform a traditional dance.
Everyone we met that day expressed so much gratitude for our contribution. It was a humbling experience to see them so appreciative of the supplies. For me, it demonstrated the responsibility we have as Christians to equip all of God’s children with the tools they need to thrive academically, socially, and spiritually. Running this marathon is one way that I can serve NPH in its outreach to kids in Latin American countries. Please consider sponsoring me and supporting the kids of NPH!
Also, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!
Much love and gratitude~
