A word from a Team IOH runner

DSC_0067Today we will hear from Grace Gerdin.  Grace has run with Team Inheritance of Hope in two events – the 2010 NYC Half Marathon and the 2011 NYC Half Marathon.  This year, Grace was the top fundraiser for the NYC Half Team – raising over $3,700.  As you will read, not only has Grace blessed families by raising funds for IOH, but she has also received a personal blessing by increasing her personal fitness level – which, in turn, has been inspirational to her children.

Online Training on the IOH Site

Every couple posts, I am going to review a benefit of running with Team Inheritance of Hope in an endurance event.  Of course, the greatest benefit is knowing that you are making a lasting difference in the lives of families facing a 'marathon' of their own.  But, this week, I want to tell you about the online training module made available to Team IOH members...

From one of our Disney 'Goofy' runners!

Going Goofy: Disney runs benefit Inheritance of Hope

By Caroline Maynard Lamar Special to The Daily Times

I wasn’t born a marathoner. For much of my life I regarded people who ran those kind of distances with a mixture of fear and awe. But there I was in the fall of 2007, crossing the finish line of my first 26.2 mile race. Immediately I knew that I had to run another one, so in 2009 I traveled to Orlando to run the Disney World Marathon. While I was there I learned that Disney offered a special medal, a Goofy medal, to runners who completed both the half marathon and the full marathon on back-to-back days. With that knowledge, I knew I had to be a Disney racer at least one more time.

Highlights and ambitions!

As the year is winding down to a close, and Christmas will soon be here, it's a great time to reflect on 2010 accomplishments and 2011 goals.  It's also an opportunity to express my gratitude towards all who were involved in Team Inheritance of Hope events - whether participating as a donor, a volunteer or an athlete.

To get a good picture of where you are, I believe it is important to reflect on where you have come from.  We began Team Inheritance of Hope in 2009 with 12 athletes.  Now, in 2010, we have blossomed...

Thoughts from a Team Inheritance of Hope athlete

DSC_0111I am happy to share a blog post from Michael Chappell.  Michael ran with Team Inheritance of Hope in the 2010 Walt Disney World Marathon.  It was his first marathon – a memorable experience because of it being his first … as well as the fact that the temperature was crazy cold – about 30 degrees!  Michael shined as he ran for the families attending the Disney retreat that same weekend.  Inspired by this event Michael went from running for families, to running with his family.  Michael will share a memorable experience running with his family this past year…
