5K Day!

We had such a fantastic time at An Orphan's Hope on Saturday!

Thank you to everyone who supported us by donating, sponsoring, attending and volunteering!

It was great to see old friends and make new ones.  We had a great time talking to everyone, especially those that registered without being familiar with Two Hearts.  

There was a soldier in the Army who registered the day of because he found the event online and, after just returning from Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, knew he had to be here.  

Our first place winner was in town for his 10 year college reunion and was looking online for races in the area.  After finding many, he chose the race that he thought had the best cause.

There were runners that attend local colleges and are now aware of the plight of the orphan in Kazakhstan and Russia.  

Even a lady who was just taking a walk through the park came over to our pavilion to ask about us and donated to the project! 

The event raised $7795 for the Ust-Kamenogorsk Window Project and there are still more donations coming in! 

We have received such great feedback and are so excited the day was awesome!  Even the face painter commented on how sweet and polite the kids were. Our 2nd year was a wonderful success!  All the glory to God!
