————————————
LIFE Runners Team,
Only 3 days to go until we line up for our mission statement (above)! Our prayers during training, fundraising for ultrasounds with the Alpha Center crisis pregnancy bus, and wearing the “REMEMBER The Unborn” jerseys…will save lives and help bring an end to abortion. [90% of Mothers who see their Unborn baby with an ultrasound...don't abort!]

FUNDRAISING: As of 8 Sep, we have 98 sponsors (list), and the Alpha Center has received 85 of the donations ($5,772) for LIFE Runners! We will present the Alpha Center with a “big check” either during the tour or at the prerace meal. Let’s lift up prayers of thanksgiving for our sponsors and invite them to receive the LIFE Group Devotions (FB).

MEDIA: If God gives us a platform, we will gladly use it to glorify Him with our ProLife ministry…further protecting the Unborn (and parents)! Thanks to Sue Peters for getting the word out.
* KELO TV will do an interview with the LIFE Runners at 2 PM, Saturday, 11 Sep, Lewis Park (E. 54th St. & Lewis Ave)…to be shown during the 6 PM News on Sat.
* The O’G High School Scroll (Cameron Johnson) and O’G Alumni Re-U-Knighter (Carol Nesbitt) are doing articles about the LIFE Runners.
* The Alpha Center (Jenay Hallickson) is doing a LIFE Runners article for their next newsletter.

JERSEY VERSE: Please memorize the verse on our jersey/logo…people will ask you what it states. “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.” Jeremiah 1:5

ACTIVITIES (11 Sep):
* Alpha Center Tour (9 AM, 801 E. 41st St)
* Packet Pickup (10 AM, Scheels All Sports, 41st & Western Ave)
* St. Theresa Mass (4 PM, 901 North Tahoe Trail): Invite family/friends.
* Prerace Meal (5:30 PM, Sue/Bill Peters home, 4400 River Oaks Circle): Please arrive between 5 and 5:30 PM (for team photo).

2011 Team: The LIFE Runners are doing the Kansas City half/full Marathon in mid October, 2011. Why? Primarily because of it’s central location for most active LIFE Runners. Plus, mid Oct is a great time of year for a marathon…and the race is described as “fast” and “scenic”! Let me know if you are a “maybe”, “probably not” or “definitely”. Spread the word for recruiting more LIFE Runners.

Looking forward to the team fellowship (sharing/growing/praying/praising) this weekend…see you soon!

Running for ProLife,
Coach Pat
