My fundraising goal: $2,000.00
My fundraising progress: $2,055.00
It is my honor to be running to raise funds and awareness for Bo's Place, a non-profit organization that provides free counseling and healing for children and families who have lost a loved one in their immediate family.
2014 will be my fourth Houston half-marathon and this year I wanted to take on this challenge for someone other than just myself. I was drawn to this charity because, sadly, the father of two of my students and husband of my co-worker passed away in January from a battle with cancer. Their family has been able to attend Bo's Place for healing, thanks to generous donors who keep the hope of Bo's Place going.
Over the next several months I will be training and fundraising for Bo's Place in honor of the Pruitt family, whose strength in the face of tragedy is inspirational.
Along with your financial contributions to Bo's Place, I also ask for prayers for my training, prayers for continued healing for the Pruitt family, and encouragement in the coming months as I take on the challenge of training for the half-marathon. (Yes, feel free to honk and wave if you see me out running! It will give me a pep in my step!) Thank you so much for your support! With your donations, you are helping heal hearts.
