Lei Lei's 2nd Annual 5K and Memory Walk

So excited to announce that plans are underway for Lei Lei's 2nd Annual 5K and Memory Walk......

The race will be begin at 8:00am on April 28, 2012, at Chaffee Crossing in Ft. Smith.

Last year we had an unbelievable turnout and support for The Children's Emergency Shelter. This year we have chosen to help support Hannah House in Ft. Smith. Hannah House is a residential facility for pregnant and troubled teens/young women from ages 12 to 29.

"The purpose of Hannah House is to offer these young women a place of refuge in a warm, home-like atmosphere where we can help them work on the issues in their lives that brought them to Hannah House. We want to help them heal and become productive, caring individuals who are able to care for their babies, or to help them in making a decision to place their baby for adoption. Their goal is "to provide help to pregnant and troubled young women whose needs are not being met in their present situation. The program will offer a Christian alternative to abortion by providing food, shelter, education, and assistance in obtaining medical care for the young woman during her pregnancy. Opportunities for counseling and Christian guidance in making a permanent plan after the birth are also available."

For more information, or to request an entry form, please email us at runforlei@yahoo.com or at leightynslifesong@yahoo.com

This year we have also added an online registration and donation form. Go to http://www.earlysignup.com/leilei5k for this quick and easy entry or donation form.

Race entry fees are $25 for the 5K and $10 for the mile walk. All participants will also receive a race t-shirt.

We are also looking for sponsors for the race. If you are interested or would like more information about sponsor benefits, please email us and we will get you the information.

We hope to see you all there!!!
