2010 LIFE Runners Team (getting ready)

SIOUX FALLS HALF/FULL MARATHON for ProLife (Sun, 12 Sep 2010)
* Mission: God first, Defend the Unborn, Encouragement, Health
Hi, LIFE Runners!

Here is a website with race details for the Sioux Falls Marathon...and a recent newspaper article about the race, Marathon Returns to City. Several of us ran the Sioux Falls half marathon last year...starts on the Howard Wood stadium track, through downtown, by the Falls, and then on the bike trail along the beautiful Sioux River. The full marathon was added this year. Your friends and family are welcome to join the LIFE Runners team. LIFE Runners are part of the LIFE Group Devotions and support the team mission (at top).

* JERSEYS: We will do another jersey order this summer.

* FACEBOOK: Marathons for ProLife page.

* TRAINING: The 18 wk marathon training program begins Mon, 10 May (schedules). The 12 wk half marathon training program begins Mon, 21 June (schedules).

* PRO-LIFE FUNDRAISER: With the 2009 TC Marathon, we raised over $2100 to help a FL crisis pregnancy center get an ultrasound machine. Ask your friends/family to sponsor you for $/mile to raise funds for the Sioux Falls Alpha Center Fleet for Little Feet (FFLF). The FFLF is a mobile pregnancy care center (click on bus picture at top). Kimberly Martinez (director) wrote, "The FFLF allows us to travel around the state and into other states to reach women with free pregnancy tests, ultrasound, STD testing, material support and the great news of Jesus Christ." For donations, go to Alpha Center "donate" link...once your sponsors begin their transaction, they will see a box that says: "Add special instructions to the seller." In this box, sponsors can write, "Life Runners"...the Alpha Center will designate their gift and code it appropriately. In case the online designation system fails, please keep track of your donations.

Run for ProLife!
