BENEFITING: The Mercy Maternity House, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Nov 05, 2016
Earlier this summer, my wife Cindi Himple took a vision trip to Kenya Africa. The purpose of this trip was to see and experience first hand just what Mercy House was all about. Mercy House supports maternity homes to provide alternative options for pregnant girls living in the streets of Kenya. Additionally, they empower women all over the world through fairtradefriday.club. Needless to say, Cindi's heart was moved by this experience and by the works she saw Mercy House doing.
Now we want to partner together with Mercy House to help raise money in support of their mission; and we want to invite you in to participate with us. On November 5th, I will be attempting to run a 100 mile ultra marathon through the Ozarks in Missouri. Completing this distance has been a longtime goal of mine, yet completing it is uncertain given that the longest I've ever run in a single day is 50 miles, and my first attempt at a 100 miles (March 2016) ended about 60 miles short :).
Therefore, to give myself additional incentive I'm willing to MATCH THE TOTAL DONATIONS dollar for dollar, up to $1000.00, if I am unable to finish this race. Who wants to come along on this journey with me?
