I ran track in high school and participated in road races. I hadn’t run in organized events for years when my daughters asked my husband and me to participate in a run on Thanksgiving Day. We ran as a family, survived it all and had fun in the process.

So when the Unbound Trailblazers were formed, I thought it was good motivation to get in better shape and help raise awareness of our organization at the same time. My husband and I started training for the Hospital Hill Run in Kansas City by running and walking 2‐4 miles several times a week.

We’re looking forward to joining the other Trailblazers June 6 on the road to physical fitness and helping a good cause.

Find out how you can join the fun and become an Unbound Trailblazer.

Sponsor ties love of running with support for CFCA

Do you engage in a sport? Many of our sponsors find creative ways to combine their favorite activities and help raise awareness of sponsorship at the same time.

Rob Grant, CFCA sponsor and runner

Rob Grant

For example, Rob Grant, a CFCA sponsor, is a longtime marathon runner and runs in honor of Jursha, his sponsored friend in India, and others sponsored through CFCA.

Rob has participated in marathons in Miami, the Twin Cities and Cleveland. He’s planning to run in the Fort Lauderdale Marathon on Feb. 19, 2012. He hopes to offer any medals he receives to his friend, Jursha.

Thank you, Rob, for all your efforts on behalf of children, youth and the aging waiting for a sponsor. And thanks to all of you who share your enthusiasm about CFCAís Hope for a Family sponsorship program.

If you’re interested in seeing how you can spread the word about sponsorship through activities you’re passionate about, we’d love to hear from you. Email cfcaoutreach@cfcausa.org for more information.
