Some of you may remember James and Emily Mummert from awhile back who delivered their sweet sleeping angel Harrison on May 29th of last year.
As Harrison’s angelversary is approaching, his parents have coordinated a 5 and 10K in memory of their little boy. It is to take place on June 1st of this year in Beavercreek, Ohio. All proceeds from this race will be presented to Dayton Children’s Hospital NICU with a fund set up in honor of Harrison. Specifically this fund will assist families who are going through high-risk pregnancies. You can find out more about the race and register for it on the Harrison’s Heroes website.
If there are any business owners who are interested in sponsoring, there are a few spots left. You can get more details on that by emailing James at James.firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m not really a runner by nature (unless something is chasing me <har!>) but I am definitely hoping to be a part of this. I am currently collaborating with my dear friend Kate to get Nora acclimated to a jogging stroller so Nora can run with us. Kate electively and regularly runs vast distances, of which will include a 100 mile endurance run this summer (!!!!!) – so it might just be Kate and Nora running. I joked with Kate that I’d do a leg of the 5K and then catch a shuttle to the finish line where I’d meet up with them – – WORN OUT!!! 😉
I’ve been told that the 5k course is a pretty standard course, not a terribly difficult challenge at all. The 10k course is perfect for more serious runners. A little more hilly and up and down. James says it’s perfect for any runner looking to train for a longer race (half-marathon or full).
Register before May 15th for a guarantee of an awesome Harrison’s Heroes t-shirt!
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.
(1 Corinthians 9:24, 25 NIV)
Gavin went to work with his Dad today and the girls all stayed home. Too bad it’s “winter again” otherwise we might have at least gone on a walk. It was a beautiful day to put up a sign, however!
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
