The Simpson Family has endured some challenging times for the past year, but they are conquering this valley with strength and honor to God.
Their worlds were turned upside down last year when Raina, 33 year old wife and mother to 3 young boys was diagnoses with stage 4 colon cancer.
God is moving in this! He is moving in and through all that know Raina and even those who don't. They feel His presence. They feel His love. God is being glorified.
God has given Raina the image of a race to symbolize this particular season of her life. Friends and family have said, "Raina this is not a sprint, its a marathon," And "this is going to be a test of your endurance." Slow and steady, Raina, you'll get there." One very related verse in the Bible never seems to leave her mind: Hebrews 12: 1-3: "And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer, and perfecter of faith."
As Runners, walkers, believers, and community members, this virtual race will give us an opportunity to show we care. We can show support by donating, praying, and running/walking to support.
The Virtual 5K , which is 3.1 miles, will take place October 30, 2021.
Your donation of $20 to participate in the event will be used to bless other cancer patients. If you don't want to run or walk, you can still help out with your prayers or by donating using the donate button.
After you complete your distance, post on social media with a selfie using the hashtag #run4raina/Giveback
By using the hashtag when you post, your name will be put in for a drawing for 1 of 4 $25 gift cards to a local Somerset Businesses.
In addition to helping by participating in the virtual event, you can help other ways too.
