On Saturday, I had the joy of being involved with the Run for Mercy 5K. I've been part of a team that planned the event beginning back in May. It was exciting to finally reach our event day and see all of our hard work going into action.
We had 435 registrants and raised close to $30,000. We're hoping that a few more giving envelopes will come in that will put us over the $30K mark!
I have some AMAZING friends who came out even though it was cold and gloomy to run or walk the race.
I really don't even know how to put my thoughts into words other than to say that I feel so incredibly blessed to have had the opportunity to plan this event that raised money for a cause that I support.
I'll let the pictures speak for me today, and I hope to share some more thoughts once I'm a little more removed from the event.
My awesome team!
I did remember to take moments to breath and smile.
