Okay, so, here's contest number two...the first person to join "Noah for Knockers", and truly stay on the team, not just sign up for the prize and quit, gets dinner on me in NYC.
Right now I have two girls, one from Seattle and another from Arizona, thinking about joining. Oh, and one potential NYer. So, pray about it. If you desire to do this, God will help iron out the details. I know the personal requirement of raising $1800.00 is daunting, but it's not impossible. I've had to raise more than that for missions trips. And, if it's the distance that is intimidating, you can do a half marathon on Saturday and a half marathon on Sunday. So...so? Bloggers for Boobies!
And as far as my favor from you guys...I want a list of names. I want to pray for men and women and families affected by breast cancer. I want to pray for them, for you, for healing, for hope, for grace, for joy, like Christ had when He endured the cross for the joy set before Him. I want names because I will be walking with thousands of faces, all people with stories, walking for themselves and for others. I desire to have a really long list of people to pray for, so will you please share names with me? Satan can't keep me from praying! And believe me, when I do my long training walks, I've got nothing but time, time, time! And, quite frankly, I am walking for all cancers, in my heart at least, so bring on the names...I'd like to put a big list on my Avon page, and here if I can figure out how, so that continued awareness is raised. It's not just a list for me, it's God's people, all with personal stories, and the people in their lives affected by the disease. I personally hate cancer, and all disease, especially those unknown, but I also have known some amazing people that have lived, and died, through it graciously. I say that because even if death was the result of their disease, they found true life in the midst of it...because even if a cure is found to every disease on earth, we all still must die. So, it's for the other side of the battle that I walk. For His glory...
