Run for Hope: Japan Earthquake & Tsunami Relief

Jon & Candice McCoy 's fundraiser for World Vision

Size 550x415 runhope

Running the OKC 1/2 marathon to support World Vision's relief efforts following the tragic disaster in Japan. Thx for joining us.

On March 11 Japan was hit by its most destructive earthquake in its history, which triggered a tsunami that swept across the country destroying everything in its path and killing thousands of people. There are still many who have not been found as well as survivors who are homeless, have lost family members and are hungry and emotionally and mentally traumatized.

The devastation is unimaginalbe, and relief will take millions of dollars as well as time and prayer.

"World Vision plans to distribute relief supplies to meet the daily needs of quake and tsunami survivors. [They] will also focus efforts on responding to the emotional needs of children, who are the most impacted after such a traumatic event." -

While there are hundreds of thousands of people in despair and our hearts goes out to each and every one of them, we're also constantly thinking of all the children who will be orphaned and/or will experience emotional trauma because of this experience. We are training to run the Oklahoma City Memorial Half Marathon on May 1 and are raising money to help support and fund relief efforts made by World Vision. By using our training and this race to help bring attention and awareness to the needs of the Japanese people, we hope to raise money that will make a difference in the lives of those impacted by this disaster.
