On Saturday, December 7, four of our UCPC members--Rich and Julianne Tutko and Dennis and Tonia Jackson—are taking part in the St. Jude Memphis Marathon. They will all be running the full (26.2 miles) marathon. There are over 20,000 participants in the day’s four major events: 5K, Half-Marathon, Marathon, and Marathon Relay.
This is St. Jude’s largest, single-day fundraising effort of the year. The Tutkos and Jacksons are members of Breakaway Running’s “Breakaway Running For A Cause” team, which is one of the top ten fundraising teams.
Prayers for strength and endurance are appreciated as each of them achieves a goal for which they have been training for six months. Let us pray that the weather cooperates so these wonderful people can complete their goal of running this marathon and helping all the children at St. Jude.
