Rebecca's Run 2013

{You can click HERE to go directly to Rebecca's Run website.}
It's hard to believe that the day has arrived to announce this exciting event! As y'all might remember Emily offered to run a race in honor of Rebecca a couple of months ago. Since then, with the help of sweet people and many prayers, things have turned into an incredible event. TRULY the Lord is so good to have blessed me with such a beautiful community and tribe!

So what is Rebecca's Run ?
Rebecca's Run is a virtual race just like any other, except that there is no "official" race location, only an official race weekend. A virtual race provides the opportunity for anyone to participate no matter where you live. A virtual race allows you to simply register for the race and then during the designated race weekend (October 11th-13th, 2013) when you want and where you want (outside, indoor track, treadmill, or participate in another race). After you have completed your run/walk email (email to: rebeccasrun@gmail.com) in the results when you're done if you would like to be considered for a winning prize. All the results will be compiled for each category (1/2 marathon, 10k, 5k, and walk opportunity) and results will be posted on this website after the race is over. We welcome any pictures or stories to accompany your weekend- please use #rebeccasrun in any social media context !

What is the purpose of Rebecca's Run?
All proceeds from the race will go directly to help meet the costs of Rebecca's medical bills, specifically her costs in California for her October treatment weeks. (Please click HERE for the exact breakdown of costs for the October trip.)

How do I participate?
Click HERE to go directly to Rebecca's Run website, register for the race, or to buy a t-shirt or wrist-band.

What else can I do to help?
I am very humbled and grateful for your heart! Please help us spread the word by passing on the Rebecca's Run (http://www.rebeccasrun.blogspot.com/) website to your friends and family who you think might be interested in helping out! As always, we welcome and covet your prayers for daily strength and for healing. 

What happened to Rebecca's old "Go Fund Me Page"?
Words can not express how grateful we are to each person who has contributed to the old Go Fund Me Page. We continue to thank the Lord for each of you daily. Currently we have suspended the original Go Fund Me page to focus on this particular event. 

Thank you so much for all of your support y'all! I am so grateful for each of you. 
Love, Rebecca
