Mother's Day 2011

In just a few days (Mother's Day 2011) we will embark on our newest challenge...to run 1000 MILES in 365 DAYS!!

We are a group of moms living in San Clemente, Ca. We have been running together for about 4 years now. Together we have done half marathons, marathons, duathlons and triathlons. We are excited about this next challenge in front of us. We are combining our love for running with our desire to make a difference in the lives of children on the other side of the world.

We will be asking people to sponsor us a certain amount of money for every mile completed in 365 days. (Example: $.10 x 1000 miles= $100)

100% of the money raised will go to the children at Acres of Love.

Acres of Love is a non profit organization that rescues and cares for abandoned AIDS orphans in South Africa. http://www.acresoflove.org/. Our money will help with the annual cost of taking care of the 10 children living in the Bridges Forever home.

Please consider:
-sponsoring one (or all!) of us for every mile we complete in the year
-make a one time, flat donation to Acres of Love via their website (please put "1000 Miles" in the comment section)
-join us in this challenge to complete 1000 miles and get sponsors of your own
-cheer us on!! :)

Please come back to this blog often and check in on our progress.

Thanks for your support.
