Running for African Youth
I'm running a 5K on April 22nd.
I know... Rose? running?
I realize this sounds unlikely, but I've been working really hard since November to get myself in shape enough to be able to run a 5K in good pace and good health. And now I'm going to do it!
The best part about the 5K is that my efforts are going to raise money for the youth leadership camp I helped coordinate in Togo. It's still going strong over there, changing lives one teenager at a time. And now I get to be part of the effort to support it on this side of the ocean.
My fundraising goal is $265 - enough to send one student to camp this year. It's not a huge amount, so even donating the price of a movie ticket (about $10 these days. yikes!) will make a dent. $15 is already 5% of the goal!
I thank you all in advance for all the support you offer me - prayers, encouraging words, love, and more.
