A year ago, I made a decision to start a journey to be healthy. The first thing I did was completely get off of caffeine and sodas.....luckily, there were no casualties. :) After the summer rush, our church began a weight loss challenge called Texarkana's Biggest Winner. During that 12 week period, I lost 34.8 pounds. Total, I have lost over 50 pounds and am still going.
As I write this post, I just finished a 2.5 mile training walk/run for a 5k that I am participating in at camp (July 24th). This 5k benefits Speed The Light. Specifically, the money raised will go to purchase a vehicle for my missionary friends, Adam and Alecia Fogleman. They will be leaving this fall to move their family to Tanzania.
My goal is to raise $10 per pound that I have lost. That would be a grand total of $500. One of my friends has already started the process with a $20 donation.
There are two ways you can give. You can send a check to:
5801 Summerhill Road
Texarkana, TX 75503
Or you can give online at:
Be sure to write STL 5K in the comments section if you are giving online.
I need all money turned in by July 17th. Thank you for your help! Many of you have been an encouragement and inspiration to me as I have been on this journey. I can tell you I am not finished yet and look forward to breaking through another milestone soon.
