2014 Strides of Hope was a success!
What a beautiful morning the Lord provided for this year’s Strides of Hope walkathon. Men, women, and children walked at Shoaff Park to support A Hope Center’s ministry that impacts hearts and imparts hope to women who may be facing an unplanned pregnancy. Thank you for your individual and team effort to make this our most successful walkathon. At this time, we have raised over $77,800 in sponsor pledges, corporate event sponsorship, and T-shirt sales.
Seven individuals raised over $1,200 each in sponsor pledges and will receive an invitation for them and a guest to the Strides Dinner Club which will be held at a local Hall’s Restaurant. In order of most sponsor pledges raised: Judi Hapke, Robert Bruckner, David Misner, Charles McIntosh, Deborah Oberlin, Donna Misner, and Maurine Gensheimer.
We had 55 walkers who raised $500 or more in sponsor pledges, making them eligible to enter the prize drawings. The winners were: Andrea Amstutz (Tranquil Touch Spa gift certificate), Phoebe McCulfor and Micah Miller (Agaves Restaurant gift card), Shirley Walton (Parkview YMCA limited membership), Kathy Prentice (Spiece Fitness limited membership), Tiffany Lifflick and Carolyn Beitz (Radio Station gift bags), and Anjie Tobias was the “Like Us on Facebook” winner (Best Buy Gift Card).
These top three fundraising teams will receive tickets to an upcoming Komet Hockey game: Lutherans for Life (raised $7,233), Students for Life (raised $2,694), and Blackhawk Ministries Team (raised $2,635). Other top teams: Keefer Creek Baptist ($2,221), New Hope Lutheran Church ($1,825), Woodburn Missionary Church ($1,710), St. Joe Community Church ($1,589), Central Ministries ($1,410), Emmaus Lutheran ($1,392), and New Vision ($1,184).
