Northern Colorado River Run for Orphans 5K

Yesterday we had absolutely perfect weather for the first annual Northern Colorado River Run for Orphans. Nick was the volunteer coordinator and I know how hard the entire team has been working for months leading up to the event yesterday. There were booths from multiple organizations, most advocating for care of orphans, music, a bounce house and some other fun things to enjoy. Let's not forget the 5K and Kid's 1 mile runs, too! 

Nick and I contributed to the children's race goodie bags, including a cross necklace with a leather strand like so many of the kids we spend time with in Ethiopia wear. He made this great tag for them to explain where they came from and I'm glad we were able to contribute in a unique way.

We're looking forward to making this event part of our annual traditions as a family. Enjoy the pictures I snapped!
