EVENT DATE Jul 15, 2016


I am excited to announce that this year I have decided to do two things that I have always wanted to do but have always put off. This year I plan to run the Pittsburgh Marathon and go on a Missions trip to Haiti. Personally, I am very excited to see the ways in which I will grow and learn through these two experiences. I know it will challenge me in many ways in order to reach these goals and I would love to have you be a part this journey of mine. Please read and consider helping me reach these goals.

The Mission

New Community Church is partnering with an organization called Welcome Home Haiti Our team is going to be building a house and spending time serving the people in the community there from July 19th-26th, 2016. During this trip, we will be helping with needs in the community, and supporting the orphanage we will be staying at during the week: Idadee. Idadee is an incredible orphanage working to help kids in need and provide them with a necessary education. Through these activities, we hope to help build a home, continue to build relationships, and bring them the hope that we have found through a personal relationship with Jesus.

The Means

In order to generate the funds and awareness needed to pay this trip, I plan run the Pittsburgh Marathon in its entirety! Every mile I run will be run in an effort to generate the support that I need pay for this missions trip. I am hoping that running the Pittsburgh Marathon will help me generate awareness for this cause I feel called to pursue. Any contribution would be incredible and I would be very grateful receiving any amount given to support my cause; but I have done some math, and if I could find 26 people willing to sponsor me for 3 dollars a mile(78 dollars total), then I will have reached my goal!!


Come May 1st, I plan on crossing that finish line. And come July, I hope to land in Haiti and do incredible things there. I know that these things will not be possible without the love and support of friends and family. I would love nothing more than to have you be a part of this journey and play an important role in this story.

Thank you for reading and for your support!

Grace and Peace
