Hello Friends!

Thank you for taking the time to come to this web site and read about what we’re doing here. We (Team 2) are currently training for the Disney Princess ½ Marathon. We are so excited about this race! Running a 13.1 mile race is not easy but it’s exhilarating! Pulling together to help women in a 3rd world nation isn’t easy but it too is exhilarating!

Can you imagine what it would be like to go through 9 months of pregnancy and not have the adequate nutrition for you and your growing baby? Then going into difficult labor and delivery on a dirt floor all by yourself? No electricity. No clean water. No midwife. No doctor. Imagine if there was a complication. These are everyday things for some women in Haiti and many of them lose their babies because of these circumstances. BUT we can help! All of us together pulling our resources can help women have healthy pregnancies, labors, and deliveries. That’s exciting!

ALL of team 2 has personally been to or lived in Haiti. We’ve have worked in the facilities that help the woman of Haiti. We’ve held their healthy babies, handed out pre-natal vitamins, and nutritious food and even assisted in classes to teach these amazing woman how to be healthier moms and care for their sweet, tiny babies. We have seen where your hard earned money goes and how it makes a difference. While we train for our ½ marathon we will be focusing our thoughts and prayers to this effort. Please help us raise the funds to keep Heartline going. We ask that you give whatever monetary donation you can to help us reach the goal. Every amount you give goes to help a mother and baby in need. For those of you who have ever given birth KNOW how hard it is, even in perfect conditions. For more info on the women’s program at heartline please go to- www.heartlineministries.org or you can search the archives of this blog.

With 5 of us running our goal is only $6,500- That’s only $100 per mile per person. WE can do it! It’s a small goal that will go a long way. Thank you so much for your support!

(From the Princess ½ Marathon website- http://espnwwos.disney.go.com/events/rundisney/princess-half-marathon/)-
“There comes a time in every woman's life when she must blaze her own trail. A time when she has to run, not from an evil stepmother, but to her moment of glory. A day when the true princess inside of her shines through. The time has come for you!”

How better to raise funds To empower women than a race that supports it? Get excited! This is going to ROCK!
