Join Red Mountain Grace on Saturday, February 15, 2020, as we run the Regions Superhero 5K and honor the legacy of our real life superhero, Brad Booth. We want to bring awareness to the need in Birmingham for hospitality housing for families coming to our world class hospitals for critical care. In his honor, we're running the race set before us as the Brad Booth Legacy team, because Brad was a superhero to us all— especially the guests who stay at Red Mountain Grace.
On November 29, 2017, Brad Booth closed his eyes for the final time and won his fight with cancer. He walked right through the celestial gate and heard the words, “well done, good and faithful servant.” Brad made it his mission to not only provide somewhere to stay for those coming to Birmingham for medical treatment but provide a sense of community and hope for the patient and their loved ones.
Brad joined the Red Mountain Grace team in its early days and worked tirelessly to support this ministry while serving as an ambassador of Christ to our patients, supporters and the entire Red Mountain Grace team - even though he continued to battle with cancer.
Where are we now?
Red Mountain Grace currently has twenty apartments and has provided a home away from home to over 500 families. While the impact we are making is great, the need is even greater.
Every night there remains a 30-40 person wait list for lodging. We ask that you help keep Brad's passion alive, by considering donating towards his legacy. Our goal is to raise $10,000 that will allow us to fully sustain one apartment for a year, providing housing for 7-10 additional families. Click here to learn more about Red Mountain Grace.
