10th Annual Bishops 5K for Kids 2011

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for the Bishop's Run for Children.

I love to run, even though I am not very fast. But, as my late father always said, it's not how fast you run; it's whether you finish the race.

Your donation goes to programs that help children in need, in many cities and towns in Connecticut. I remember when former Bishop Clarence Coleridge started the fund in the early 1990s. My children were young at the time and I could relate to the importance of helping all children, regardless of income, have access to good teaching, good food, support of all sorts.

I also remember when Kate Smith, wife of former Bishop Andrew Smith, told us one Sunday that she was helping to start a race. But for some reason I have not signed up to do it until this year -- and so I have some catching up to do!

This run is the main fundraiser of the year for the Bishop's Fund for Children. Please, won't you help by sponsoring a slow but steady runner in any amount that is comfortable for you?

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.

Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate. Peace

-- Chris.
