Dear Friends and Family,
We are always looking for new and different ways to grow. I have recently found a group/devoational book called "Run for God." It talks about how you can dedicate your running to the Lord to accomplish great things. From this process, I would like to dedicate my GR Triathlon this year to Make-A-Wish Foundation. This will be more first outward step in that process. As I try to personally grow through the devotional book, I would also like to act my faith out by helping to raise money for the make-a-wish foundation. I believe all good comes from the Lord and no one can doubt the good the Make-A-Wish foundation brings to our communities. Please help me support this cause and families like Aydin's....her story is below:
Aydin's parents weren't sure she'd ever speak. Her medical condition came with a long list of possible ways it could impact her life. I believe that a Make-A-Wish experience can change everything for a child with a life-threatening medical condition.
This is what happened because of Aydin’s wish: People in her community stood together to grant her wish to be a singer. Make-A-Wish arranged photo shoots, time at a recording studio, production of CDs and a debut performance at a local music venue. Aydin's experience gave her a glimpse of what life can hold besides medical treatments and worry. Her wish was a day free from her worries. And it will always help her find courage and optimism to help her overcome challenges in her future.
Please help by contributing any amount you can - $50, $75, $100 or even more. Every dollar you donate can help Make-A-Wish kids renew their courage and find a turning point in their lives.
Thank you for your support!
Bill and Susan Van Dis
