Run for Rebecca a success!
So many people to thank for helping to make the first Run for Rebecca a success. The weather was perfect! Many volunteers got up early to serve coffee, register the runners, pass out t-shirts and make sure all the runners had water on the route and at the end of the race. Gary, our race coordinator had the run start on time and made sure all the prizes were awarded. The runners liked and appreciated the long-sleeve shirts in the cool of the morning. And, everyone loved the prizes from Kenya. I was very happy to see the American Youth team run the race. They got up very, very early to drive to the race from college! Mike my son and all his family were there by 6 am to help! And David’s daughter and new husband were there early to help. And, almost of the Kenya team members from Cumberland Community Church were there. They leave for Kenya Thursday night and will see Rebecca and all the other children at Beat the Drum. We feel great about the first Run for Rebecca. We are already planning the second run! Thanks to all who volunteered, recruited runners, ran the race and supported Rebecca and the children at Beat the Drum.
