How Are We Doing ...

gracerace_img.jpg Grace Race Fund
The orphanage and school building construction is done, thanks to your support!
The orphanage and school building construction is done, and the One27 Academy is now open as of January 2013, thanks to your generous support. We still need your assistance. Please help us raise $20K by January 1st 2015 to fund farming projects and vocational training infrastructure at the Academy. Together we can do it! Your partnership is much appreciated!

Another fun-filled Grace Race – thank you all!

Oct 7th, 2014 by feehrer | 0

Hi Grace Race friends,

Thanks to all of you who ran, walked, volunteered, donated, and sponsored someone at the 11th Annual Grace Race on Oct. 4th! It was a fun day as always, and though the clouds and mist hurt our numbers a bit, we appreciate everyone who came out to participate. This year we had our best raffle ever; just about everyone who ran/walked/volunteered walked away with an award or prize of some sort, as well as a full belly thanks to our refreshments providers.

Glarius Rop of Springfield, MA defended his title in the men’s race, running a speedy 24:52 for the 5-mile course (15 seconds off his record set last year). Kara Haas, a Chelmsford resident well-known in the running community, returned to win the women’s race, running a great time of 20:41. Joseph Ekuom, who grew up in Kenya and now resides in Kingston, NY returned for his 4th time to win the men’s Master’s 1st place prize with a time of 28:40. Eileen Conte of Burlington, MA ran 37:52 to take the women’s Master’s 1st place prize.

Full results are posted at coolrunning.

We will post a full set of raceday photos soon, too – look for them here.

Thanks to Marx Running and Fitness of Acton, MA who through their OnYourMarxRacing race management program took care of registration, timing, awards, shirts, and other details. Make sure you buy your running shoes and other gear at Marx Running!

The Westford Police Amateur Radio Team under Andy Stewart’s direction helped with communication prior to and during the race, and helped to keep everyone safe, along with the Chelmsford Police – thanks guys. We are grateful for all our sponsors who donated cash, refreshments, and prizes for our big raffle. Thanks to Super Stop and Shop of Chelmsford, a late addition to the list of sponsors, for providing water and fresh bagels.

We’re grateful for Kronos Inc. letting us use their parking lot, as they have for the past several years of our event.

All of the net funds raised this year (after race expenses) go to the purchase of laboratory and vocational training equipment at the One27 Academy in Naivasha, Kenya that we’ve built with your support with money raised at The Grace Race over the last 11 years. Please check out our child sponsorship program at http://www.onechildkenya.org to learn how you can further assist and provide for the educational needs of the children living at this unique facility. Many of the children who live there and who hope to one day live at this place still need sponsors and you can fulfill that need!

We are still tallying up pledge money raised by walkers and runners this year, and when we have determined the total amount to send to Kenya, we will post it here. Thanks again for being a part of The Grace Race and doing your part “one step at a time” to help orphans in Kenya who’ve had a difficult start to life. Please know that we could not accomplish any of this work to empower and educate these children without your faithful support!

Getting close to Grace Race day!

Vocational training and the 11th Annual Grace Race

Jul 13th, 2014 by feehrer | 0

Hi friends! Please remember to register for the 11th Annual Grace Race online through OnYourMarxRacing here or download a paper application and mail it with a check to the address shown on the application (see right sidebar of this page for link to application). The race is on Saturday Oct. 4th at 10 AM and you won’t want to miss it. Tell your friends who like to run or walk. If you want to volunteer to help, you are most welcome. Please register online as a volunteer so we can contact you.

If you sign up to run or walk, don’t forget to ask friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers to sponsor you. It’s optional but we encourage it! You can download a paper pledge sheet (old school, but it works well and many people still opt for it) or use one of our online fund-raising options. Speaking of fund-raising … think back to your middle-school or high-school years. Perhaps you took a shop class or a “home economics” class where you learned some basic skills, created woodworking projects (hand-made Christmas gifts for the family?) and made use of the school’s set of tools.  Maybe you attended a vocational high school where you had more advanced training in something like welding, auto mechanics, carpentry, plumbing, electrical, computers/IT, cooking, etc. The One27 Academy in Naivasha, Kenya that you each helped us build has been up and running since January 2013 thanks to your support. About 75 kids live there and an additional group of teens from the community attend classes there during the day; their tuition fees, in addition to money donated through the OneChild sponsorship program to support kids who live on site, help offset day-to-day operational costs. The money raised at this year’s Grace Race will be used to purchase equipment for the various vocational training programs to be offered at the Academy. With the unemployment rate as high as 50% or more in Kenya and no welfare system for the jobless, having a job skill is extremely important. We want to do all we can here in the US to provide these boys and girls with the resources (tools, training, teachers) they need to become successful self-sufficient adults. While some of the best students will go on to college in Kenya, a large number will seek jobs in the local community. That is why this training and equipment is so vital. We’ve set a goal of raising $20K for vocational training equipment this year. Will you partner with us to make it happen? If each you can ask 4 or 5 friends for a small donation, we will meet or exceed our goal. If you want to make a positive life-changing impact on some needy kids by doing something you enjoy – running or walking – here’s your chance. Thanks for reading, enjoy the summer, start training, and see you on October 4th!

Photos of the rain water reservoir project – it’s done!

Feb 4th, 2014 by feehrer | 0

Grace Race friends,

Here are some photos of the completed rain water collection and reservoir system. This was built using funds that you helped us raise through your participation in the 10th Annual Grace Race last fall. Good work and asante sana (Thank you very much)!

Mark your calendars: 11th Annual Grace Race Oct. 4th 2014!

Feb 2nd, 2014 by feehrer | 0

Hi Grace Race friends,

Thanks for helping us to raise over $4000 at the 10th Annual Grace Race! The run and walk turnout was a little lower than in previous years, but as always we were delighted by your support and generosity. You came together as a community to have some fun and help the kids in Kenya, as you have for the past 10 years. Good work everyone! Construction of the rainwater collection and reservoir project at the One27 Academy in Naivasha that I described in previous blogs is underway. This was the focus of fund-raising in 2013. We’ll post photos of the project soon. Grace Race Fund thank-you letters that you can use for tax purposes have gone out to those of you who made donations.

Planning is also underway for the 11th Annual Grace Race, to be held on Saturday October 4th, 2014 at 10AM! Please mark your calendars. Marx Running, through their OnYourMarxRunning program to help local road races, will again be assisting us with logistics and promotion. We’ll post the online signup link as soon as it’s available. Please help us to grow the race – tell your friends about the Grace Race and send them a link gracerace.org.

In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the winter and don’t forget to train! Treadmills and elliptical trainers are your friends when the roads are too treacherous. Stay tuned for more details on the race and the projects in Kenya ….

-  John, for the Grace Race team

Grace Race friends,

The full set of photos from the 10th Annual Grace Race are now posted here (with a few select ones copied below too). Thanks again to our gifted photographers Ben, Crystal, and Clarissa for their excellent work capturing the spirit of the day in pictures. A special thanks goes out to our webmaster Alfonso for getting all the photos posted too. Enjoy!

Thanks to all who made the 10th Annual Grace Race a success!

Hello and thank you to all the runners, walkers, volunteers, and sponsors who made the 10th Annual Grace Race a success! Special thanks to Mark Coddaire at Marx Running for helping with race logistics and to Andy Stewart and his team from Westford PART for the assistance on the course with communications.

It was a smaller than average turnout but everyone finished, and we had some impressive running in the front. Both men’s and women’s records were broken today!

For the men:  Glarius Rop of Springfield MA, originally from Kenya, ran a 24:37 – breaking Nate Jenkins’ record of 24:49 set in 2010. The second place finisher Amos Sang was another man from Kenya and he also broke the previous record, running 24:44.

For the women: Lindsay Willard of Somerville MA ran a 29:12 – breaking Kara Haas’ record of 29:26 set in 2012.

Our first women’s master’s finisher was Cindy Meklenburg of Westford. The first men’s master’s finisher was Joseph Ekuom of Kingston NY, also born and raised in Kenya. Joseph was our 2011 champion and finished 3rd last year.

Full results are posted here at coolrunning.

Since we are all about raising money to help kids in Kenya, to provide a safe home, education, and vocational training for girls and boys there, we love to see runners who grew up in Kenya come to support us. This makes the race that much more meaningful, I think. Asante sana (thank you very much) to our Kenyan friends!

We will post photos of the race soon and also report on how much money we raised this year in support of the rainwater reservoir project described in the slide below.

Thanks again everyone for making this a memorable day!
