I support the crew @ http://RunMarkRun.com as 3 guys named Mark run a marathon to help Haiti! Join me & give your pennies!*TWEET THIS!
We had some rain here in Philadelphia over the past 24 hours and it made for an interesting run yesterday afternoon. I did about 6 miles through the rain, through the hills, and even through the creek. As I was running down the trail at Pennypack I came upon the Pennypack Creek fully over its embankment and so I just shrugged my shoulders and ran through about 1-2 ft. of rushing water. Not the most intelligent thing i have ever done but it was fun! I’m hoping today i’ll stay a little bit drier.
I pray that all of you reading this will check out two sites today or this weekend, www.runmarkrun.com and www.nwhcm.org . These two sites will give you a good idea of what this campaign is all about. Although a lot of things have happened around the world in the past few weeks, months, and year the people of Haiti should not be pushed back from the front page news. A country starving, dying of preventable disease, and strugglish to hold on to hope should never be off the front page. Check those websites out and see how you can make a difference.
Lastlyand most importantly this weekend please pray for the people of Japan and the Pacific this weekend. Speechless is all I can say when seeing the footage and reports coming from an area devasted by an earthquake and a tsunami.
We're here to raise $100,000 for Haiti. Contribute to us and help provide clean water, medical care and food for the people of Haiti, still struggling more than a year after the earthquake. Join THREE Marks and pledge to support them as they conquer 13.1 miles each running the OneAmerica Mini Marathon.
