I'm totally excited and honored today to be spending our Family Fitness Day helping out at the Seabrook Lucky Trail Marathon. Because my Avon Breast Cancer walk is just two weeks away, I can't take part in running the marathon itself, so instead I'm volunteering, along with many of my students, to help out at an aid station.
This marathon benefits The Bridg e, a safe place for victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. During Hurricane Ike The Bridge suffered a huge amount of damage and is still rebuilding. The hope is that the funds will help repair some of the damage so The Bridge can continue providing care to those who need it.
Today my three boys are taking part along with one of my fitness buddy's son. Today our family fitness day takes on a whole new meaning as we're focused on helping out others and not just enjoying the day together. Right now the boys are already off and have run over half the marathon. I'm taking a break to get a few pictures and to upload them to my computer.
Family Fitness day is a great tradition in our family, and now I'm thrilled to see our usual Sunday togetherness incorporated with the need to help out those who need it!
