This Labor Day weekend 2007, Children’s HopeChest will be hosting our first ever 1/2 marathon to support orphans around the world in Virginia Beach, Virginia. This event is called, Run for One and athletes who run will be running to champion the cause of a better life for one orphan in Africa and Russia. The good news is that you can walk, jog, or run – your choice! To sign up please go to the website at My 10 year old, Hayden, is even running! I am convinced that we can all change the world for one orphan and this is your opportunity to do it. You will be connected with the orphan you are running for, develop a relationship with them, and even visit them if you so choose.
