I need your help!

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:

Rusty Posey
Northside Church
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.
