For months, a team of Nativity runners has been training for the sweltering Hotter than Hades Half-Marathon outside Leland, Mississippi. Cyndi Saia, Swayze Hicks, Katie Jones, Sloane Fair, Cindy Wilson, Harris Powers, Perry Whites, Hayes Harris, Charlie Swayze III, Louis Holbrook, and Peter will run the 13.1 miles and in their honor, the church will donate $500 per runner to Special Session, a camp run by the Episcopal Church in Mississippi that serves adults and children with special needs.
You can help raise money for Special Session and be a part of this team yourself, and you can do it in a way that doesn't require quite so much effort! Visit hotterthanhades.racesonline.com, and register for the "Virtual" Half-Marathon, which commits you to walking or running 13.1 miles between June 1 and June 15. Your $50 registration fee covers the cost of a t-shirt, and the rest of the proceeds go toward Special Session scholarships. Don't forget to choose Nativity, Greenwood as your team when you register!
