Mud Luvn' 2010
An amazing godly couple from our church started a ministry called www.habitatforhope.org
Their ministry is for the purpose of supporting, serving and caring for families facing the serious illness of a child. I first learned about this ministry after meeting Mark in church one Sunday and I was blown away by what they are doing. I continue to stand amazed at all the people they are bringing hope to during such a difficult situation. If you don't know about it read about it. What a blessing to our city and so many families that come here for treatment of their child.
This past Sunday they held their first annual fund raiser 5K race at Shelby Farms called Luv Mud. It was AWESOME! You could sign up individually, teams of two or teams of four. My boys including Braxton and a friend that Braxton mentors signed up. Part of the fun of this race is participating in costume. The team name for the boys was the PDS Mudsaders and they dressed in PDS football uniforms.
It was not your typical 5K, there were obstacles along the way plus at the end right before the finish line you jumped, as a team, into a huge pit of mud. Boy heaven! My boys could not wait for the race and ever since the race that is all they can talk about. They are already planning costumes and strategy for next year.
Today I washed my bathtubs and cleaned out my washing machine. If you could have seen the post ring from 3 very muddy males and the damage their clothes left...disgusting. But oh so worth it. I think next year I may even join them!
Great job Habitat for Hope, can't wait for next year!
