SAVE THE DATE!! Saturday, April 28, 2012

What an awesome day we have planned!! 

First, Do you like to Run or Walk for a GREAT cause??
How about RUN 4 ONE? One child who can't speak up for themselves, one child who needs a home, one child who needs a HERO...

Join us on the morning of April 28 for the Country Music Marathon. Join Team OH and help raise funds and awareness for children in need through this marathon. 

I (Kelly) will be leading the Team OH walkers in the mini marathon (2.6 miles)  :-). We can get some chit chat in and the time will fly by! Besides, you DO NOT want to see this Momma run. It is not a pretty sight, ha! I do love to walk fast though :-)

My hubby, Shane, will be leading the runners in the Half Marathon.  He is super excited and ready to get his Half marathon team ready.

Our friend, Bert Thomson, will be leading the Full Marathon runners. God Bless y'all!! Whew! He is what I like to call an expert marathoner. He runs in just about all of them that he can. He is ready to get his team motivated and up and running. 

Visit our RUN 4 ONE Team Ordinary Hero page for more info and the ability to create YOUR OWN fundraising page to help spread the word and raise funds for children in need. 
So don't delay. Get signed up for the marathon and come join us on April 28 for some walking or running fun for OH!

How about joining us for our Third Annual 
April 28 at the Vanderbilt Marriott, reception starting at 6pm.

For any of you marathoners who might be coming in from out of town to run and then stay for the banquet, the Marriott is just steps out the front door to the start of the race. We have a limited number of rooms held so let us know if you need one asap.

FYI..Raise $50 in support through the marathon and get a free OH athletic marathon shirt. Raise $200 in support and get a free athletic shirt and ticket to the banquet dinner. Raise $1000 in marathon support and get a free athletic shirt, ticket to banquet and free hotel room if needed. 
Not participating in marathon but still want to support in some way? You can donate at our page or create your own page and get donations for OH, and also earn a ticket to the banquet!

Shout out to Team Scullen!
They are taking the Team Ordinary Hero fundraising lead so far! Go Team Scullen!


This benefit dinner is going to be a night FULL of inspiration! Chuck and Carrie Cecil are the chairs for this event. Chuck just joined the St Louis Rams as their new Defensive Coach.  I (Kelly) will be introducing you to some amazing Ordinary Heroes who have brought home some amazing waiting children through adoption (and you will get to meet the kids)  and others who have helped some amazing children locally. One of our precious older children who we advocated for for at least 2 years and was adopted this past year is actually coming in to run the half marathon and then joining us that night for the banquet with her family. You will get to meet Fasika, as well as her friend, Getu who resided in that same orphanage with her, among others. These kids are sure to inspire you. This benefit will also be good if you have a mate on the fence about adoption, as it is sure to inspire. Hee hee! 

There will also be a GREAT silent auction. If you have any silent auction items you would like to donate to our event please contact
