Today our 5th graders ran/shuffled/walked/limped around an oval that was painted on the church parking lot. The reason? To raise over $10,000 for school! The school raised over $11,000. We raised over $850.
Back during the 1960’s President Kennedy challenged America to run 50 miles in 20 hourshttps://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/wellness/jfk50-a-soft-american-accepts-the-challenge/2012/11/05/6066df4a-1d86-11e2-ba31-3083ca97c314_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.2467b690d9a2 . At Bethlehem, students ran 30-35 laps in an hour. The details may be different, but the outcomes are similar: being a part of something special as proud Americans. When we work toward something greater, while graciously utilizing our God given gifts, this Nation prospers.
It was a good time!
