March 3, 2014

We have an exciting fundraiser to tell you about.  On March 14th, a team of friends of Mary's Shelter will be participating in the "A Cross America Relay" to raise awareness and donations for pro life ministries.  This team has been organized by Chad Finch, to "adopt" portions of this race to benefit Mary's Shelter.  Our very own Board of Director's member, Mark Ivory,  will also be joining in this event along with runner Howard Thomas.  These athlete's  will be running on the C&O Canal Path in Hancock, Maryland and will, as a team, complete multiple, consecutive legs of the race, totaling just about the length of a marathon.  Talk about walking the walk, or in this case, running the run!
There are many ways you can participate in this event.  If you feel called to donate to support this team and ministry, please go to our website, and sign up to make a donation. All proceeds of this race will go directly to helping women and children in need.   Your support would definitely be an encouragement to these runners, as well as a great benefit to this life saving ministry.  You can also get in touch with Chad at if you would like to join his team.  Most importantly, you can offer a prayer for these guys as they push the limits and spread the message of life through action.   We thank you for your participation in this event.
