BENEFITING: COMMUNITY FOOD BANK OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA
EVENT DATE: Nov 23, 2014
I love running, for me it is more than exercise...it is good for the soul! Running is great exercise, which is a God-honoring thing itself, but it is also a great way for me to be alone and connect with God in a deeper way.
On Nov. 23rd I will run my first full marathon. There are five non-profit organizations that are being supported through the Route 66 Marathon. When I saw the email about the opportunity to raise money, I could not come up with a good reason not to run for a greater cause.
I have chosen the Eastern Oklahoma Food Bank as the organization I would like to support. Would you consider donating 50 cents or 1 dollar per mile to help feed those in need (That's just $13 or $26 for those who don't like math). Or, any amount that you would like to give.
I see this as an opportunity to make my running an even more Christ-centered activity, because feeding the hungry is an example of one kind of ministry that is indicative of one who has truly been transformed by Christ (Matt. 25).
