BENEFITING: The Mercy Maternity House, Inc.
EVENT DATE: May 21, 2016
I've been running for four years and, after several 5Ks, 10Ks, and half marathons, I decided to take on a new challenge this year: the marathon.
Running a marathon is both terrifying and exciting to me, but to help motivate me and keep my mind focused on something meaningful during the race, I'm dedicating those 26.2 miles to one of my favorite organizations, Mercy House.
Mercy House is a maternity home in Kenya and this is their mission:
"Mercy House exists to engage, empower and disciple women around the globe in Jesus’ name. Engage those with resources to say yes to the plight of women in poverty. Empower women and teenage mothers around the world through partnerships and sustainable fair trade product development. Disciple women to be lifelong followers of Jesus Christ."
I would love to put my miles and your monetary donations together to support this wonderful home and organization. Thank you for your support!
