Dear Family, Friends, and Community,
YEAR 11!!!! I feel like I say it every year, but WOW how is it already year 11?!
When God first asked me to step outside and run 1 block in 2011, I had NO idea what this running journey would become, but He did! I would’ve NEVER imagined any of this, but I’m so grateful for every single step!
Thank you to ALL of you for your financial support of the kids of St. Jude through this run! I couldn’t be doing it without you! I’m always grateful for your prayers and encouragement along the way!
Last year was AMAZING and so wonderful to get to make the journey from Kewanee to Peoria again. There were still some modifications, but we were so excited to cover our 54-mile route! We will be heading there again and are excited that it will look even more like it used to with the telethon and celebration. We don’t have all the specifics yet, but it’s very exciting news!
The run itself is so AMAZING and it’s such a blessing to be in this coordinator role to help make it all happen, but I do not want to lose sight of the fact that this is a fundraiser first and running event 2nd! The goal is to raise as much money as we can for the children of St. Jude and their families!!!
My prayer is that this year’s total far exceeds any of the past years! St. Jude has made such amazing progress in curing childhood diseases, and WE have ALL been a part of that process! They CANNOT do it without us all coming together in whatever capacity we can to give whether that’s financially, time, prayers, food, gas, running, volunteering, etc. IT ALL MATTERS!!! We are ALL part of a giant team helping to make miracles happen!
As always, I appreciate every one of you and your continued support! The run is Saturday, August 5 so if you’re local, please keep that day in mind and come out to support us! If you feel led to help in other ways as well, please do not hesitate to reach out to me and we can discuss options!
Thank you for your continued love and support!!
