I have joined the Missoula Youth Homes "Run 4 Kids" team while I am training to participate in the Missoula Marathon on July 8. I have committed to raising $500 in honor of the children who have benefited from the Youth Homes programs.
The Youth Homes organization has helped over 9,000 at-risk children and youth in Western Montana by giving them the opportunity to experience childhood in a safe and secure place to call home since 1971. Each day they serve over 180 children in shelters, group homes, or foster care homes.
Last year when we were training for the marathon, some of these children were on our training course handing us water. After looking in their eyes and thinking of what some of their journeys in life had been like, I vowed to join the team this year. I will keep these children in my heart and my mind while I train for this exhausting event.
Please help me meet my goal to help these children! Thank you for your support! All donations are tax-deductible.
