Run For Compassion- the Child Survival Program
To give you an update, the Run For Compassion is coming along!
I think we have close to 50 people registered. That's totalling close to $1000.00
Our goal is 200 people and $4000.00
If you've read about this here or on the website www.runforcompassion.com then you know how this got started.
My Godly parents have set the bar for us kids (grown kids, of course) to raise money for this. They gave us each $50 and told us to make more with it. (Sounds like the parable of the talents, right?)
This is the info my Mom sent us recently:
One sponsorship for a CSP is $28 per month - this includes $8 per month for Compassion AIDS initiative - which we will include.
It is our goal to commit as one large family to 6 sponsorships. That is $168 per month or $2016 per year.
I think this is an amazing goal, but if we reach our goal with this run, we can double it.
I'm not sure we could even count how many children and their families' lives could be changed. The Lord is doing something huge in my heart and Rusty's heart. We are broken for what's happenning an ocean away. We should have been a long time ago. And we have to ask ourselves what more can we do, in His name? For His kingdom?
Join us! You can be apart of this by registering for the 5K, 10K or kids fun run. There's also a place to donate. If you'd like to send a check to me directly, make it to Compassion with us on the memo line, and I'll send it in with the money. We could also use volunteers on race day.
I've obviously never been a race director before. I've only been in two races! This is crazy, and overwhelming! But I'm learning. I will know more next year, that's for sure! I need to know how many t-shirts and racing numbers to order. The earlier you register, the better I'll sleep.
I'm so excited! Thanks for your excitement as well!
