Hi, everyone :) Thanks so much for taking the time to check out this page!
I decided and am determined to take on running the Detroit Free Press Marathon this upcoming October, and I am just so so excited! The longest race I have ran leading up to this one so far was a 10k, so this is a challenge I am super pumped to take on! It sounds crazy coming out of my mouth, but I absolutely can't wait to start training :)
I'm going to be running to support the Akha Light Orphanage in Thailand. The funds are used to rescue local Akha children from abuse and human trafficking, as well as provide for their needs physically, emotionally, and spiritually. This includes a safe home, clothing, three meals a day, education, health care, and much more. I would be so incredibly grateful if you feel led to donate to these children and their well-being! Even comitting to pray for them would still mean the world!
Here's to new challenges, growing, and the blessing of hope :)
