Congratulations, CM Running Team, on an outstanding weekend of racing!  You did us all proud.  I wonder if you had the experience of Eric Liddell, who said “when I run I can feel His pleasure.”  God is honored when you use your gifts to the best of your ability and to the praise of his glory.  In the words of St. Paul, you have “fought the good fight” and have “finished the race.”  I continue to find inspiration from the quote by John J. Bingham: “The miracle isn’t that I finished.  The miracle is that I had the courage to start.”  Keep up the good work.  Lord willing, the CM Health Center will sponsor the GO! again next year.  In the mean time, parlay your GO! experience into a year of exercise, running, and discovering what God is working in you through this experience.  Blessings!


Christ Memorial Health Center (CMHC) is excited to be selected as an official GO! for a Cause charity for GO!
