2017 Soaring Wings Half Marathon and 10K

Conway, Arkansas

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

I will be running the Soaring Wings Half Marathon (virtually) for the 7th time.  In case you don't know, "virtually" doesn't mean I'm just going to sit back and imagine myself running the course.  Since I'm the Race Director, I can't participate on race day, so I am running the course on a different day!  

I am asking my friends and family to sponsor me in my 13.1 mile run by donating to Soaring Wings Ranch, the non profit children's home that benifits from this race.  I believe in this ministry with all my heart, and I love the children who call it "home".  Soaring Wings is a Christ-centered family and home that provides security, love, and hope to children who need a chance, through no fault of their own, for as long as they need.  They meet each child where they are and challenge them to develop spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically.

Currently, 24 boys and girls age 6-18 call Soaring Wings "home", with 7 additional children, infants through 5 years of age, being added THIS JUNE!  That's right, Soaring Wings Ranch is opening an Infant and Pre-school home in June!  Soaring Wings has been anticipating this opportunity for quite some time, and I can hardly wait to see them welcome their youngest children to their new home!

Soaring Wings operates debt-free, and depends upon the generous gifts of individuals to take care of the children in their care.  Thank you for sponsoring me, and for helping Soaring Wings continue to make a difference in the lives of children!  All gifts are tax deductible.

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 too!
