Sometimes a mother just has to brag.  Last Thursday night, my son and my daughter, stood in a muddy field, while rain fell on their precious heads and they held up a hand made cross for a picture shoot for the local media.  A hand made cross?  What is this?  My son, ever the business man, decided to take it upon himself and enlisted the help of his sister and others, to put on an insanely fun and exciting Mud Run, www.crosscourse.org on father’s day weekend, June 14, 2014 in Lapeer, Michigan.  He intends to raise enough money in one day to send our next 40ft sea container to Malawi. This container will container your beautiful dresses and britches, school and medical supplies, text books, blackboards, soccer equipment and so much more.  But it takes a ton of money to get these things to Africa!  My son wants to raise the money in one day.  And if I know this kid, he’ll do it! Cross Couse is a 5K (3.11 miles) insanely fun obstacle course mud run! Participants will run/walk/jog through trails and pastures cut through God’s green earth and encounter 15+ (optional) obstacles along the way!  Your faith and your body will be put to the test.  You don’t want to miss it!  The photo shoot the kids were in Thursday night was showing everyone’s favorite of the day:  an 8 foot cross will be carried up a hill, for those that want to try it.  All obstacles are your choice! This day is to raise awareness.  To get involved. To raise money.  We need you to be part of this day!   Walk/Run/Donate!  www.crosscourse.org  Please use LDFA for your discount code and receive $10 off the registration fee.  I want to show my son what the LDFA team looks like when it gets behind something!  Will you be part of it?
