In October Ben and the boys ran the Orphan Love Mud Run. Ben did the 5k and the little’s did the kids mud run. We were one of the eleven families that benefited from the concert and race proceeds. It was such a fun way to fundraise and get friends involved in our adoption process.
Here are a few pictures from the race!
Several of our friends drove an hour and twenty minutes each way to run in the mud with our boys. And did I mention it was stinkin cold and that day? True friends right there!
Two other couples/families that are dear friends of ours were also benefiting families from the race. I love that we were able to fundraise together! In the end It’s a Child’s Life was able to raise close to $18,000 which was split among the 11 families. We are so grateful to have been part of this fundraiser! It made a big dent in helping us to have the funds to accept a referral some day.
A BIG thank you to everyone who sponsored us in the race and came out to run the race along side our family!
