This last Saturday I participated in the 1st The Bette Belle Smith 5k Run for H.E.R. in the Central Valley.
This 5K fun run-walk for H.E.R. (Hope, Education, Reunification), benefiting the women and children of the Inter-Faith Ministries' Redwood Family Center.
The Redwood Family Center:
- Is a transitional living center for women recovering
from drug and alcohol addiction
- Provides an opportunity for women to reunite with
their children in a structured environment
- Provides long-term residential support and assists
in treatment programs
- Offers residents a comprehensive life-skills program
The hard part about this race is that it was the first one. No map of the race was available online, and though there was a person taking photographs I can't find anything about it online.
The best part about the race was that I did it with my family. How wonderful is it get everyone out of the house just go and do something.
