Team Mercy Runs the Country Music Marathon!
Hello to our AMAZING Run for Mercy Team!

I hope that the past few days have found you recovering well from your half or full marathon. It was a beautiful day to be outside, and I was so glad to see some of your smiling faces at our team dinner on Friday and at the race on Saturday.

CONGRATULATIONS on your accomplishment of completing the race! I hope that you all enjoyed yourself out on the course. I’ve loved hearing from some of you about your experience, and I encourage you to let me know how the race went for you if you haven’t already. I’d love to hear about it.

THANK YOU for all the hard work you did as you trained and fundraised to run this race for Mercy. Together we’ve raised $31,823!!! I wanted to let you know that you can still receive donations on your personal fundraising pages. I will pull the final list next Monday morning and contact you individually if you reached an incentive tier to earn a prize.

The race was featured this week as a web story on our news blog. I encourage you to check it out HERE!

We have also launched registration for the Nashville Run for Mercy 5K on October 22. You can register for the 5K at We would love to have you join us at this fun and family friendly event!

Finally, we will begin working on plans for next year’s Run for Mercy team for the Country Music Half and Full Marathons soon. I hope you’ll consider running the race in 2012 for Mercy.

Thank you all so much for being such an amazing team. It has been such a blessing in my life to lead you, get to know you and see you all complete a distance race in the name of raising money for Mercy Ministries.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you ever have any questions about running for Mercy or getting involved with us in other ways.
