Run for Ducks 5K

As a group, we decided to participate in a local 5K race on the beach. We used the race as an opportunity to raise money for Lutheran World Relief Gifts, which allows people to purchase animals as an economic resource for impoverished people in foreign countries. We ran with the goal of raising money to purchase ducks for rice farmers in the Philippines. The Sunday school got involved by seeing who could raise the most money toward our cause. The members at Bethlehem responded graciously, giving over $2000 toward our cause! It felt great to send a check that big toward a good cause! Praise God! Feel free to check out Lutheran World Relief at www.lwr.org.

Getting ready for the race...

It was a perfect day on the beach for a 5K

For many of us, this was our first 5K. We all had a great time!
