Are You a Runner with a Purpose?

Spring is here, and for some, that means putting on their running shoes for the hope of fitness... and this year also for the hope of children worldwide.

Children’s Hope International will have a team running in the 2008 Bank of America Chicago Marathon. Runners come from all over the world to participate in this event, considered to be the pinnacle of achievement for elite athletes and everyday runners alike. On Sunday, October 12, 2008 runners from all 50 states and over 120 countries will set out to accomplish a personal dream.

Running for CHI will mean running for a great cause - children in need of homes, health and hope. Become a part of something bigger this year – come run with the Children’s Hope marathon team!

We hope you are all as excited as we are. Keep thinking about the kids as you do your training for this event. Remember to pray for them and for each other as we all get ready to RUN FOR HOPE!
