Miles for Haiti

I want to share pics from an awesome event that was held this summer. On July 4th, Ed & Bonnie Sauder hosted their annual triathlon, with this years donations going to build roofs for churches/schools in Haiti. It was a very successful event, as well as fun and inspiring. The cool thing about the tri, was anyone could participate, and choose to do 1 or 2 events, or all 3. There were a wide range of althetes, varying from the very serious ‘Ironman’ participates, to families and kids. The morning started at 7am with rules, directions for the course, a few comments from Scott about our work here in Haiti, then a prayer.

This is a pic of the kids, who finished the kids tri. They worked hard by swimming, biking 6 miles, then walking/running 1.5 miles. Way to go!!

A huge thanks to the Sauders, Zimmermans, Otts, the sponsors, the participants, and all who helped make the event a success! God was glorified, and many Haitians will be grateful for many years to come.

  1. Wow — great crowd for the Haiti benefit and beautiful weather! Kate just found your blog this week and can’t believe how big the girls are. We were just talking at potluck last night that you have the oldest grandchild, going into high school already, so that must mean we’re getting old. We’re so thankful your mom testified of God’s provision in accepting your call into the mission field and your folks are thankful it is home to you. They talked a lot of how God has blessed you & your family with friends and faith and we will continue to lift all of you up into His loving, protective hands!

    Blessings — DonnaLou
