The 5km run/walk/ride for the Congo

took place on Saturday morning. It was a gorgeous day (thank you God!)

We had 28 participants come out and run/walk/ride the course. I'm still waiting for final figures to come in, but it looks like the event raised over $2500, which means that we can purchase about 16 sewing machines for women in the Congo!

I was totally blown away! I'd never made any predictions or put a lot of thought into how much we'd raise, but I thought more like a fifth or sixth of that amount! I'm really thankful to everyone who made it such a success-- the sponsors, the participants and the volunteers.
And thanks as well, to my family who supported my efforts and rode the course with me-- you guys rock!
