I know everyone must get overwhelmed with the amount of things that ask you to contribute to this important cause or that worthy charity, and I know they are all deserving of your time so I will try to keep this short. I'm running the Giants Half this September to to raise funds for the House of Faith on behalf of Reacts Ministries. The House of Faith serves underprivileged children in Thailand by providing food, shelter, and education to the children in their care. Reacts Ministries' vision is to support orphanages and children's homes, work alongside them to build up their youth, enabling them to spread the gospel, and also to meet specific needs of these orphanages and children's homes to foster and promote self sustainability.
If you made it this far, you should know that I am not a runner and I'm naturally lazy. Nothing beats a good nap or some Game of Thrones binging on the couch for me, but this has definitely gotten my attention and raised my awareness for greater things out there. I have definitely put my all in training for this race by running every week at Kezar and Lake Merced, so this is definitely a worthy cause for me. I would definitely appreciate any contribution you would make to this cause, but please don't feel obligated. Raising awareness helps too so feel free to check out http://www.reactsministries.org/ for more info on all the wonderful things they do. Lastly, if anyone would like to join us on our training runs, please let me know! Your company is always welcome!
