The Human Race

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who joined us on a beautiful, early spring morning a couple weeks ago to participate in the Human Race as members of the Caroline's Promise team. 268 people walked or ran and raised nearly $1800 which will be used to Reclaim Hope for Orphans! (All the blue t-shirts are the Caroline's Promise team. The T-shirts said, "In the time it took me to to tie my shoes a child became an orphan". That's about 18 seconds, in case you were wondering.)

We'd especially like to thank Jennifer Barnes who spent many hours organizing the Caroline's Promise Human Race Team. We're also appreciative to the Volunteer Center of Greensboro for hosting the Human Race. It was very powerful to look around at the thousands of people who gave up their Saturday morning to support the numerous Triad non-profits represented at the race.

We'll see you all at the next Human Race hosted in 2011!
