Campaign: Grand Rapids Marathon
Team: Daybreak

Aprille and Phil Marsh

I first started this team last year when they played a video of a man running and why he was running at Church. I found it very inspirational. I heard something inside of me, deep down to take the challenge myself. I grew up not playing any sports and even though I would do my 30 minute Jillian Micheal video's as an adult I never was a runner. I thought well, I can run 13 miles. That isn't that far of a distance and I can change someone(s) life. Sign me up! The journey wasn't easy, I found out very quickly 13 miles is a long while. I mostly trained on my own due to being shy and having to miss a lot of group runs due to work. But when ever I wanted to quit running I would pray for GOD to give me the strength I needed to complete this. I wanted to make my family proud and more importantly my over all goal in my life is to make a change. To leave this world a little better off. I ended up raising around $ 700.00. This year GOD has called me to do this 1/2 marathon again but my goal is to raise 1,000.00. I am so excited that my husband and daughter has signed up to complete this goal. I am asking to please consider donating to this great cause, ANY amount is greatly appreciated and will impact many, many lives!

PHIL: I have decided to run because I want to make a change in someone's life and after seeing my wife complete the 1/2 marathon last year really inspired me to take on the challenge! Please help us reach our goal and come cheer us on race day! October 15th, 2017
