Miracle Miles 5K for Garren Janes

The weather today was absolutely perfect. Not a cloud in the sky. We showed up at Porter Ridge High School to see about 200 people gathered around getting ready to run and walk the Miracle Miles 5K for Garren.

We all stood at the start line, and got ready to go. Garren took the bullhorn, and pressed the siren button to start the race, and off we went. I was toward the front when we started. I looked back over my shoulder as we rounded the first corner. It was an awesome sight to see so many people running and walking. There were people there that we don't even know - people who have been following Garren's story.

One of the highlights for Garren was meeting Dwight Stone. Dwight is a former Pittsburgh Steelers player. After the run he came over and met Garren, talked to him for a while, and left Garren with a whole bag of Steelers goodies.

Thank you so very much to each and every one of you who came out to support Garren today. It truly is amazing to see God's love poured out in so many special ways through you all. A special thanks to Stacy and Mary, and all those who helped them to pull the run off. It was a lot of fun!
