Brad's Journey: https://youtu.be/WDptiibfgyI
On Saturday, February 9, 2019 I will be running my first 5k - the Superhero 5k at the Mercedes Marathon to honor Brad Booth and his legacy. I want to bring awareness to the need in Birmingham of lodging for families coming to our world class hospitals for critical care, who have been temporarily displaced.
On 11/29/2017, 7 years into the battle, 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 all of our patients, supporters and the entire Red Mountain Grace team - even through he continued to battle with cancer.
Red Mountain Grace currently has twenty apartments and will service roughly 140 families in 2018. Since opening its doors, Red Mountain Grace has provided a home away from home to over 280 families. While the impact they are making is great, the need is even greater. Every night, there still remains a 30-40 person wait list for lodging. I ask that you help keep Brad's passion alive, by considering donating towards his legacy. Our overall 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.
