Yay! Today I got to run in a race for an organization I love and I was sponsored by my favorite local health-food store. I love the way the social network connects us. I finished with a better pace than I thought I would, and most importantly I met my personal goal of not walking any!
First Thing First is an award winning non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening families through education, collaboration and mobilization by serving as a community resource.
They offer marriage and parenting classes and support. They are a constant encouragement to anyone trying to keep their marriage together or raise their children into responsible adults.
After passing 10 year of marriage last year, I know how hard it can be sometimes to try and make life work with another person, to be one mind, one heart. I admire an organization that seeks to strengthen those bonds within the community. Strong families do not happen overnight or on accident. It is lovely to know there are people working to offer affordable help to couples and families who need an extra hand in making life work.
I have to thank Earth Fare for sponsoring me. I love our local store, they are dedicated to our community on so many levels. They are always sponsoring events that celebrate a healthy lifestyle. Plus I know anything I pick up in their store will follow their rules:
No artificial fats or artificial trans fats
No High-Fructose Corn Syrup
No Artificial colors
No Artificial flavors
No Artificial Preservatives
No Artificial Sweeteners
No Antibiotics or Synthetic Growth Hormones in Meat or Dairy
No Unbleached or Bromated Flour
All in all, it was a great morning! Now it's time to finish decorating the Christmas tree and warm up with a bowl of chili!
Love and Butter,
