October 3rd is the 5K Run
You are Invited to the Rescheduled 5 K Run for Families
It is official. We have rescheduled the Run for Families for this coming Saturday, October 3rd. It will be at the Moonlight Stage Pavilion on 1st Street in Morehead, KY. Registration will start from 7 am with the run at 8 am.
Come on out and get one of our cool T-shirts designed by Dusty Coyle, shown in the center of this picture of Ezra Dike and me. If you raise $35 in donations, you get a free T-shirt. You can also buy one for $10.60.
Ezra is the Morehead Habitat Director. You can hear Ezra and me on the radio program Front Page with Chuck Mraz at the link below. One friend said she never knew enough about Blessing Hands or Habitat until she listened to the program. Maybe it will help you get to know us better too.
We had great volunteers and participants turn out in the rain last Saturday. We hope you will come this Saturday. We have great prizes. The grand prize is a home stereo surround system worth $300 given by Colorama. It will go to the fastest runner regardless of gender or age.
The course can be found at this link. Try it out ahead of time.
I am a mother and housewife that loves China and children. The two interests
have come together in serving the children of China who need help with
educational needs. I started as a teacher in an English summer camp and got to
know the teachers first. When I toured their schools and met their precious
students, I could see many needs and decided to try to help. I first started a
fund to assist children with tuition, but it has expanded into a 501(c)(3)public
charity granting money for textbooks and school supplies for primary school and
lower middle school students and tuition for older students.
