The members of 1:17 spent Monday night stuffing 500 of these awesome swag bags. We have a fantastic group of families who have adopted, families in the process of adopting, some preparing to be foster homes and some that just have a heart for orphans and are supportive of all efforts to care for the "least of these." On Saturday we will also have many other volunteers from the Fellowship at Cinco Ranch, the location of the run, on hand to help out. Three other churches have also volunteered to set up water stations along the race route; Living Word Lutheran, Grace Fellowship Methodist, and Grand Lakes Presbyterian. We have totally cool medals for the winners of each age/gender group.
Following the race we are gonna have a fabulous party with a super fun kids zone and a great concert by national recording artists the Wayne Kerr Band. The Wellness Center will have a booth with free massages and the new salon next door to the Wellness Center will be doing free polish changes! I'm looking forward to that. There will also be several vendors there with information about adoption in case you want to know more about our cause.
So online registration for Run 4 the Children is now closed, BUT you can still show up at 7:15am on race day and register there. You don't have to run the 4 miles either, you can walk AND there will be a well marked short cut that is only 2.6 miles.
