Chosen: Marathon for Adoption sponsored by Charis Orphan Care & Adoption takes places October 23, 2010 in New Braunfels, TX. This inaugural run will raise money for adoptive families and orphans around the world. After working in orphanages in both China and Haiti this summer, orphan care has become very dear to my heart. I never knew I had the capacity to love a child who I didn’t give birth to. Running in this marathon is one way I can help the plight of orphans. However, I must give kudos to my friend @jessicanwells. She registered first and then asked everyone else to join her. Initially, the thought of running 13.1 miles made me nauseous. Now, after months of training, the thought of accomplishing something I’ve never done before thrills me.
All proceeds from the race will fund adoptions and take care of the needs of 250 orphans in an Ukrainian orphanage and you can help too! Maybe you aren’t a runner. Maybe you aren’t called to adopt. Maybe you aren’t called to travel the globe loving on orphans. However, maybe you are called to give. If you would like to sponsor me, please donate using the PayPal button provided. No donation is too small $5, $10, $25.
Thank you for helping rescue orphans.
