Hope Hike 2011: A Superior Challenge

$0 0

We are raising support for the St. Cloud Christian School. On Saturday, June 25, 2011, we will be participating in Hope Hike 2011: A Superior Challenge. Together we can help girls with a financial need experience a life-changing education through SCCS. We will hike a challenging section of The Superior Trail, a footpath that largely follows the rocky ridgeline above Lake Superior on Minnesota's North Shore from Duluth to the Canadian border. I am asking each hiker to raise a minimum of $450. I want YOU on my team!!!

In addition, this year there is an opportunity to have the top fundraiser's pledges matched by the Katies Club Fund. Katie's Club was created in 2005 in memory of Katrina Serenity Stigman who struggled with breast cancer, but whose life was a continual demonstration of hope and faith to those around her. The Katie's Club Fund is happy to partner with us in raising funds for Teen Challenge and will match monies raised by the top fundraiser.

The St. Cloud Christian School (SCCS) is an independent, non-denominational, Christian school located in St. Cloud, Minnesota. The school provides an excellent education in a building and encouraging environment. I would like to see this opportunity opened up to some female students who, without financial support, wouldn't be able to attend. Visit www.stcloudchristianschool.com for more information.

Here's a brief story about Katie's Club Fund:

In September of 2005, as Katrina Serenity Stigman lay in her hospital bed, hope should have been fleeting. After five years of tests, scans, surgeries, lab reports, therapies and treatments, she was physically exhausted. Each day seemed to bring more bad news than good. Pain had become her steady companion, a constant reminder that the breast cancer had invaded her bones. Despite what her body was screaming, her heart and mind were set on something else, as revealed in one of many conversations she had with visiting friends and family. "I don't know how she does that," the visitor said with bewilderment in her eyes. "I came here intending to cheer her up, and instead SHE cheered ME up!" Katrina's hope was eternal, no amount of pain could erase it. And certainly nothing would keep her from sharing it, even her own physical deterioration.

Katrina died in October of 2005, but her legacy of hope has lived on through Katie's Club Fund.
