Yesterday morning youth in our community lined up to walk a 5K for someone in need.
What started out as an activity for the young men and women in our ward became something much bigger and more inclusive.
There’s a 17 yr-old girl in our community, with Cystic Fibrosis. She wants to travel to Seattle with her family. That is her wish. So … our teens reached out to other teens in Liberty Lake and organized a fund-raising effort …
that resulted in $2,350 to help this family grant their daughter’s wish.
We had cheerleaders from CVHS …
and other very cheerful people to ramp up the enthusiasm!
Geoff and Dan (on their Harleys) were our make-shift “police” escorts that led the final march back to the school.
Even the little people and the puppies were troopers!
It felt really good to be a part of a small effort that made a big difference for one person.
It’s amazing what can happen when a few people get together for a good reason.
