BENEFITING: Youth Homes
EVENT DATE: Jul 14, 2013
Casey and Jenny are running with the Run 4 Kids team this coming Missoula Marathon on July 14th in honor of the children who have benefited from the Youth Homes programs.
We have committed to raise $750 and we hope you will consider helping us towards this goal.
Because of the Youth Homes organization, over 9,000 at-risk children and youth in Western Montana have be given the opportunity to experience childhood in a safe and secure place to call home since 1971. Each day they serve over 150 children in their shelters, group homes or foster care homes.
There are many stories of children in the Youth Homes. We couldn't pick just one to share with you so we hope you will check out the "Meet our kids" page that can be found here.
We have been training since January and when we first set out on our training journey we had not seriously considered running for a cause. Yet, when we joined the Run 4 Kids team, we got more and more excited to be doing something important to help these kids and our community.
Thank you for taking the time to consider donating. All donations are tax-deductible. Please consider asking your employer if they do company matches on donations that you make.
Thank you for all of your support!
Jenny & Casey (& Bella *)
* Although Bella sadly can not join us on this important day, she is an integral part of our training team and has run every single one of our training miles with us (plus a few more because she rarely runs directly from point A to point B).
