2nd Annual Run for Mercy!


Last weekend, we hosted our 2nd Annual Run-4-Mercy 5K and Family Walk in St. Louis. This year we had over 200 people turn out and close to $13,000 was raised specifically for the St. Louis home. Prior to the run, everyone had the chance to hang out and enjoy Starbucks coffee and Krispy Kreme doughnuts which were donated to Mercy for this event. We had serious runners, mothers with strollers, and even dogs turn out to participate!

After the race, there was a time of sharing about the heart of Mercy Ministries. Participants also had the chance to hear the testimony of a former graduate and prizes were given to the top performers. There was a special prize awarded to the person who raised the most money.

Overall, the event was a great success! We would like to thank everyone who participated in support of Mercy Ministries. Your devotion makes it possible for girls to gain real freedom from life controlling issues.
