charity: water 10k

This last Saturday, November 20, we held the TrinityGraceChurchRun4Water to benefit charity: water. The idea started after Scott Harrison spoke at church over the summer. Jessica Joy took the lead on organizing the run - we had a total of 18 runners!

Pre-run picture - you can also see all the fall trees in Central Park.

On your marks, get set, go! (This obviously was a posed picture.)
And we're off... We started at 72nd on the east side and headed north on the Central Park Loop. It was great - we got one hill out of the way right away, and then we just had deal with the "North Woods Hill" - that one is a killer.
This was somewhere between mile 4 and 5.
Finished! It was about 48 degrees - perfect weather for running.
High five with Jarrett
Jessica Joy, Dina and I
Jessica Joy was my weekend running buddy in training for the run.
Our goal was to raise $5,000 which is the cost to build one well in a community. We exceeded our goal!!! Once the well is built, it will have a plaque that says "Trinity Grace Runners" and we can go visit the community.

Looks like the perfect day for a charity run. Congrats on doing so well both in the run and the contributions.
