Presented by the Sherwin-Williams Women's Club benefiting The City Mission and Laura's Home Women's Crisis Center, Running with a Mission is a family-friendly 5k, 1 mile walk, and kids dash hosted at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo on Saturday, June 15th!
Why am I Raising Money ?
For the past three years, I've had the immense privilege of training with a group of women from Laura's Home who have the goal of participating in Running with a Mission. Most of the women haven't ever played a sport, let alone run a 5k, and the growth we see physically, mentally, and emotionally in the span of six weeks of training is incredible. Three times a week we have the opportunity to share stories, failures, laughter, plans, and dreams. We get to know their children, we overcome fears, and we always realize that we all have so much more in common than expected.
As a runner, I've always known that the love of running is a gift. And the best gifts are able to be shared with others. When you give today, every $ will be matched up to $5,000 by Sherwin-Williams. Will you join me in supporting these women long past June 15th by making a gift toward their wholeness and hope today?
