THE MCDOWELLS ARE RUNNING!
Each year we greet Spring by tying on our running shoes, donning our shorts, and training to run for New City Neighbors. While we don't think we can participate in the Fifth Third 5K this year, Ellie hopes to run in the Fifth Third Jr. again--maybe with Megan--and she also plans to run another 5K later in the year with Beau.
Will you join us in raising support for New City Neighbors? Your financial support of will help change the lives of Creston neighborhood young people--the boys and girls who are our neighbors and our kids' friends--through Breaktime, Breaktime Bakery, and the Urban Farm. Because of your support, children will learn what it means to be a follower of Jesus, learn key life and work skills, receive needed individual attention, and experience what it means to work as a team.
Please consider donating online (on my page for the McDowells as a family, or on Ellie's individual page) or sending your check (payable to New City Neighbors) to us or to NCN at 1226 Union Ave NE Grand Rapids MI 49505. Thank you in advance for helping us reach our family goal of $1,000!
This year, for every $5,000 raised, our Executive Director, Eric Schalk, will run a 5K. Can you help us make him run a 25K?!
