I loved being at the Run for Mercy 5k. It was amazing to see how many people were supporting us and encouraging us all throughout the day. I felt very blessed and so thankful! God is so faithful to all of us, and we are so thankful for all He has given us! - Danielle
It was fun to watch on the sidelines and cheer my Mercy sisters on! God is good and has provided so much for us! I’m so thankful for the people, organizations, and other ministries that support us. I’m definitely going to be participating next year! - Alyona
This was an awesome experience! I had a great time walking with my Mercy sisters. We laughed, talked, and had fun! It was cool to see all the people supporting us and their encouragement. It gave me a great feeling, and God showed Himself so much to me through the 5k. - Andrea
