Human Race – A family event

As we gear up again for the Human Race on May 4th, I have family on my mind.    We have had a recent addition to our family last September (Alicia Mae Gellings), and it’s a little mind-blowing that the Gellings household is now a family of four.    However, it also reminded me that the Human Race is a true family event.    Of the many participants that will be running and walking, some will be pushing strollers, some will be bringing along the family dog, and some will participate in wheelchairs.    It is really an event for all.   

It’s so appropriate, because I think of the Medical Mission that this event will support for Mighty Hearts, and it’s also all about the family.     The children come through the clinic as a family…sometimes as an extended family if an aunt or a grandparent is the only guardian available.    In the clinic, in addition to taking photos for the files of the children, the mission team also takes a family photo for the family to take home with them.   This is a gift that the families really appreciate! 

In addition to paying attention to the health of the children, the medical team also helps the parents understand the importance of nutrition, hygiene and a loving home to the overall health of the children…..and gives them tools to provide healthy meals and a clean, loving environment for the children.    Family is very important to the mission of Mighty Hearts International……so I’m thrilled that the Human Race is such a family-friendly event…..so join the Mighty Hearts International team…..and bring the whole family.    After the “race”, there are brats and hotdogs for everyone.    In addition, this year, a portion of the Badger marching band will perform the 5th Quarter.    We’ll look forward to seeing you there!
