Virtual 5K for a Wonderful Cause

My dear friend Katie founded a virtual 5K last year supporting a favorite charity of hers, The Little Flowers Project.  From The Little Flowers Project's webpage:

Our mission is to provide specialized services to abandoned children.  Recognizing the beauty and dignity of each and every individual person, we at Little Flower reach out to those who are rejected, abandoned, deemed as useless, and who have no voice. Our projects focus on providing special care to abandoned infants, nurturing the growth and education of older disabled orphans and providing loving care for children who are dying.  Whether by direct care, support, or education we are making a difference, one child at a time.

Katie's Run for the Little Flowers is an annual virtual 5k that anyone can enter and run or walk or just donate to at their convenience.  If you register at Katie's blog by September 25th, you will receive a really cute t-shirt and medal (if desired).  The Little Flowers Project receives $17 from each $25 registration, which is a pretty darn good ratio in the charity world!

I wish I had blogged about this earlier, but there is still time to register and get involved.  Visit The Little Flower Project's webpage and learn more about this wonderful organization.  Like them on Facebook and get regular photos and updates on all the beautiful children they work with and care for.   Head on over to Katie's blog and learn more about The Run for the Little Flowers Virtual 5K . Join my family and me, and run for The Little Flowers!
