The “Families In Need” Organization announces
The 2nd Annual Southern Illinois
“Pocket Full of Love”
Charity 5K Run/Walk
Partnered with Elkville Christian Church~Elkville, IL
We are excited to announce our 2nd Annual 5K Charity Run/Walk. We all know family emergencies and tragedies happen every day. This charity is set up to benefit church family members and families in our local surrounding communities. “Pocket Full of Love” came about through a few members of ECC, who saw a need for families struggling with cancer and other sudden emergencies. After a few discussions on how to help, the “Pocket Full of Love” mission emerged.
Last year’s race went very well and this year’s race will be on Sunday September 22, 2013 at 3 p.m. This year will benefit our Families In Need Organization. This organizations purpose is to be able to help families that are struggling due to unfortunate circumstances, whether it is illness, fire, sudden death in a family, the list of circumstances that would require someone needing assistance is endless. We look forward to partnering with you again for another successful year. We encourage you to take the time to think and pray about this charity and its cause, and are asking that you give from what the Lord places on your heart. We would like to take this time to thank you in advance for your loving heart and compassion to help others in need in our local communities.
A sincere THANK YOU goes out to those of you who helped support the 2012 race in any way. Together, we raised $7,070 to benefit Richard Swiney and his four children who lost their loving wife and mother, Julie in February 2012 after a courageous battle with breast cancer.
“Three things will last forever-faith, hope and love-and the greatest of these if love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13
