First Annual Heart For Others Run is a Success!

Lets pause to celebrate! It was fun! And best of allwe scored! All of us, partnering together, to impact the lives of children and teens in our neighborhoods. The first annual Heart For Others (HFO) event was a beginning victory and an inkling of things to come. Paladin Sports Outreach president Jason Best had this to say about this years event, I think it was wildly successful for a first time event. I was very proud to be associated with the event and so proud of our church and its members for stepping up and volunteering, walking, running, sponsoring, etc.!

Success of the Heart For Others 5k Family Fun Run was made possible by our generous 2009 sponsorship group. Your valuable sponsorship has brought the local community together with our community for this years event, resulting in the distribution of $4,000 to beneficiaries: Paladin Sports Outreach, Crisis Pregnancy Center of Florence and San Tan Bumblebees. These are organizations that are passionate about the underserved in our communities. Take some time and check them out for yourself, then take action! 2009 Beneficiaries
