Run for Hope


This weekend our church had the kick off for our Judgement House. Keeping pace with this year’s JH theme, “Hannah’s Hope,” the story of a young girl’s fight with cancer, we had a day to honor and/or remember those who are battling all forms of cancer.

There was a 5K run/walk. Around 220 participated.

And they're off!

The walkers and strollers.

Our son came in 3rd (didn't get a picture of that) and Adam came in 9th.

Our girls helped hand out water bottles.

Josh shares his water with Elijah.

Al ran with Jill. At the end she pulled ahead of him to beat him.

Dinner was pulled pork sandwiches, chips, drink and cookie.

Luminaries were placed around the church to honor or remember a loved one affected by cancer. There were others - my good friend, Debbie Fry. Della Loewen. Jane Busenitz....

Returning guest and recording artist, Andrew Peterson along with Ben Shive sang and led us in worship. Andrew was not feeling well and one of our doctors diagnosed him with bronchitis. He was put on some meds and he did a great job and was able to do the entire concert. Thank you, Andrew!

"May the God of hope fill you will all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13

Thanks for the photos. I have been waiting for them since I couldn't participate because I am home nursing my new knee and sore muscles, etc. Looks like a great evening!

More than just okay said...

Thanks for the pics. I was inside working on the sound check and didn't get to see the run. Looks like it was a lot of fun.
