I'm participating in the 4th Annual Piedmont Turkey Trot!
In addition to running the course, my desire is to impact the lives of foster children across the state of Oklahoma! And that's why I've decided to also fundraise as a Charity Runner! Please consider supporting me with a tax-deductible donation so that I can reach my fundraising goal! All proceeds from this race benefit Bright Sky Ministry, a local 501(c)(3) that provides essentials to foster and kinship families to Oklahoma foster families in need.
Thank you for your consideration!
Bright Sky Ministry's Mission: To provide essentials to foster and kinship families in Oklahoma.
In 2021, Bright Sky Ministry assisted over 800 children in obtaining the essential items they needed, including car seats, beds, mattresses, diapers, formula, personal hygiene items, and clothing. We purchase these items new and ship them all across the state of Oklahoma. This has proven extremely beneficial to families who live in rural towns and/or are underserved by local resources. In 2022, the demand for Bright Sky's services continues to grow and they are on track to assist over 1,500 foster children with essentials. Bright Sky will purchase over $200,000 worth of essential items to ship directly to foster families.
A donation of $150 provides one foster child with the essentials they need to feel safe, comfortable, and loved.
In order to meet the continued increase in need, our fundraising goal for 2022 is $250,000. We need to raise $30,000 at the 2022 Turkey Trot to help meet this goal! We can only do this with your help and generosity! Make a difference in a foster child's life.
The need is here. Help us meet it!
NOTE: All donations - whether through an individual charity runner's fundraising page or on this page - will go directly to Bright Sky Ministry for foster children in Oklahoma. You are not donating directly toward a runner.
