THE STORY:

I am excited to announce that this year I have decided to do two things that I have always wanted to do but have always put off. This year I plan to run the Pittsburgh Marathon and go on a Missions trip to Haiti. Personally, I am very excited to see the ways in which I will grow and learn through these two experiences. I know it will challenge me in many ways in order to reach these goals and I would love to have you be a part this journey of mine. Please read and consider helping me reach these goals.

The Mission

New Community Church is partnering with an organization called Welcome Home Haiti http://www.welcomehomehaiti.com/home. Our team is going to be building a house and spending time serving the people in the community there from July 19th-26th, 2016. During this trip, we will be helping with needs in the community, and supporting the orphanage we will be staying at during the week: Idadee. Idadee is an incredible orphanage working to help kids in need and provide them with a necessary education. Through these activities, we hope to help build a home, continue to build relationships, and bring them the hope that we have found through a personal relationship with Jesus.

The Means

In order to generate the funds and awareness needed to pay this trip, I plan run the Pittsburgh Marathon in its entirety! Every mile I run will be run in an effort to generate the support that I need pay for this missions trip. I am hoping that running the Pittsburgh Marathon will help me generate awareness for this cause I feel called to pursue. Any contribution would be incredible and I would be very grateful receiving any amount given to support my cause; but I have done some math, and if I could find 26 people willing to sponsor me for 3 dollars a mile(78 dollars total), then I will have reached my goal!!

 

Come May 1st, I plan on crossing that finish line. And come July, I hope to land in Haiti and do incredible things there. I know that these things will not be possible without the love and support of friends and family. I would love nothing more than to have you be a part of this journey and play an important role in this story.

Thank you for reading and for your support!

Grace and Peace
